The Debrief: Record win, English scorers and commanding Kova

Chelsea’s performance in beating Norwich City in the early kick-off on Saturday was pretty much a textbook display.

The scoring started early and the chances continued to flow throughout. It took a few minutes to get to grips with a double change by the Canaries at half-time, when they went from two to three up front, but once Ben Chilwell scored our fourth goal on 57 minutes, there was no looking back, especially with our opponents reduced to 10 men soon after.

Unsurprisingly the 7-0 victory is our biggest against Norwich. The previous best was 4-0.

Yesterday was the 25th time a Chelsea men’s side has scored seven or more goals in a game and the 16th time in league matches, six of those in the Premier League era.
