Mount bags treble as Chelsea hit seven

Chelsea proved they can cope without their injured strikers as Mason Mount's hat-trick powered the Premier League leaders in their 7-0 demolition of Norwich on Saturday, reports AFP. Thomas Tuchel's side were rocked when Romelu Lukaku sustained an ankle injury and Timo Werner suffered a hamstring problem in the midweek Champions League victory against Malmo. Despite the absence of their main forwards, Chelsea tore apart bottom of the table Norwich at Stamford Bridge to move four points clear at the top. Mount started the rout with his first goal since May, ending a run of 15 scoreless club appearances for the 22-year-old.  Mount struck again from the spot and hit his third in the final seconds as Chelsea recorded their biggest win since Tuchel arrived in January. Woeful Norwich had Ben Gibson sent off in the second half for two bookings. Chelsea have now won their last four games in all competitions.
