Thomas Tuchel gives injury updates on Chelsea duo Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner

A hat-trick from Mason Mount propelled Chelsea to a 7-0 win over bottom side Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday, extending their lead at the top of the table.

Mount opened Chelsea’s account when he sent the ball low into the net after a layoff from Jorginho in a move started down the left by the ever-busy Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 20-year-old Hudson-Odoi earned his own reward 11 minutes later when he latched on to a pinpoint throughball from Mateo Kovacic and held his nerve to fire home past the outstretched leg of Norwich keeper Tim Krul.

A third Chelsea Academy product got on the scoresheet three minutes before halftime when Mount slid the ball into the path of Reece James and the wing-back produced a delicious chip over the advancing Krul.

It took 12 minutes of the second half for Chelsea’s, now purring, machine to score again when left back Ben Chilwell sent a Kovacic pass across the face of the goal and into the back of the net past a despairing Krul.

Norwich, who have failed to win a game this season and have scored just two goals, were in disarray and then suffered the indignity of an own goal from Max Aarons in the 62nd and a sending off for Ben Gibson after a second yellow card two minutes later.

Krul saved a penalty from Mount late in the game but VAR showed he had moved off his line and when the kick was retaken in the 85th minute Mount made no mistake. Mount capped off a fine performance with a tap in from a Ruben Loftus-Cheek pass in the 91st.


Phil Foden’s reaction

Phil Foden spoke to Sky Sports after the game about his goals and playing in a newforward role for the champions. He said:

I thought from the start we looked very good in possession and controlled the game.

“Sometimes when you are 3-0 up you drop your level a bit. We are a bit disappointed with the second half but we dug in and only conceded one which is good.

“I’m enjoying it, I can drop deep and get the ball and pick the passes off. It’s a new role for me and I can say I’m really enjoying it. It changes it game to game. Sometimes I stay higher than normal, but this game they went man-to-man so I dropped a bit deeper and I thought we used the extra man well.

“We are on a good run of form, but we just want to keep going now for the next games and keep that level. On another day I could have scored three, but the main thing is the result and I’m just happy we got it today.”

Phil Foden scores twice as masterful Manchester City ease to win at Brighton

A first-half masterclass from Manchester City saw them win at Brighton and move back up to second in the Premier League

The reigning champions were untouchable for 45 minutes as Phil Foden scored twice after the recalled Ilkay Gundogan had opened the scoring.

Brighton were much better after the interval and arguably deserved more than the consolation given to them from the penalty spot by Alexis Mac Allister, with Riyad Mahrez striking late on as City left the south coast with a 4-1 win.

City batter Brighton to go second

Brighton conceded as many goals today as they had in their previous seven Premier League games combined.

They let in four goals for the first time in 43 Premier League games, since a 4-2 loss against Everton in October 2020.

City beat Brighton to move second

That win means Manchester City move ahead of Liverpool and into second place. They’re two points behind leaders Chelsea but Liverpool have the chance to overtake them when they face Manchester United tomorrow.

Brighton remain fourth but with United, Tottenham and West Ham all playing tomorrow they may drop out of the top four but the end of the weekend.

Full-time: Brighton 1 - 4 Man City

90+6 mins: An impressive performance from Manchester City moves them up to second in the table just two points behind leaders Chelsea. Phil Foden was the star of the day but Brighton aquitted themselves well in the second half after a shocking first 45 minutes.

GOAL! Brighton 1 - 4 Man City (Mahrez, 90+5’)⚽️

90+5 mins: Icing on the cake! Brighton fail to deal with a cross and the ball comes to Fernandinho on the edge of the box. He slots it to Foden who sets up Mahrez arriving from the right. Mahrez takes a touch to control the ball and then sweeps it past Sanchez to give City a fourth.

Brighton 1 - 3 Man City

90+3 mins: Foden is denied again but this time by Veltman. City win a corner and Foden knocks it short to De Bruyne. He works it back to Fernandinho who gives it to Rodri. City are in no rush to work the ball forward now. They’re happy to keep possession.

Michael Jones23 October 2021 19:22

Brighton 1 - 3 Man City

90 mins: Five minutes of added time to play. Foden has come alive again since De Bruyne has come on. A couple of times now he’s been played into the box by the midfielder and Sanchez has come to Brighton’s rescue. Foden still needs another goal to get a hat-trick.

Michael Jones23 October 2021 19:20

Brighton 1 - 3 Man City

87 mins: Riyad Mahrez comes on to replace Gabriel Jesus who is encouraged to hurry his way off the pitch by the referee. You wouldn’t think City had a two-goal cushion with the ways they’re trying to waste time.
