Chelsea preserved their lead at the top of the league with a 7-0 win over Norwich on match day 8.

A Mason Mount hat-trick, coupled with goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, Ben Chilwell and a Max Aarons own goal was enough for Chelsea to put seven past a hapless Norwich side.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has explained why his team was able to get such a scoreline.

Chelsea dominated every area of the game and the scoreline didn’t flatter the losing team. According to Tuchel, his players were sharp and had intensity.

Speaking to BT Sport, Tuchel said: “We played a good performance. We were sharp and put in a lot of effort. We pressed high and won many balls, we played with a high rhythm and created a lot of chances. To score seven you also need a bit of luck and momentum, but it was a good effort.

“This is just one game, the next one follows on Tuesday evening [in the EFL Cup]. The players deserve all the credit, but it’s also only one game.

“The focus was that we keep the same intensity and we create opportunities. This is what we demanded. You need luck to score and you need the moment. That’s why I’m happy because the intensity was high and the rhythm was high.”
