- Chalobah, Mount and Havertz decided with their goals at the Premier’s bottom team
Under the weight of the announcement of the sanctions on Roman Abramovich, owner of Chelsea, and that leave the ‘blue’ club ‘frozen’, Thomas Tuchel’s players achieved a 1-3 win on Wednesday against the bottom club in the Premier, the Norwich. Chalobah, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz decided for the European champion, 3rd in the English championship, after this victory 13 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, leader, and 7 behind Liverpool, 2nd.
Chelsea started strong. Those from Stamford Bridge went ahead thanks to Treboh Chalobah already in the 3rd minute, when the central defender ‘blue’ finished off a header from a corner served by Mason Mount. And Mount himself scored the second goal for Tuchel’s men, in this case a great goal with his right foot in the 14th minute and after taking advantage of a pass from Kai Havertz.
But Norwich reacted in the second half, in which those from Stamford Bridge felt uncomfortable. The entry of Milot Rashica by Mathias Normann after the break changed the image of his team. Not only did Norwich close the gap through Teemu Pukki, converting a penalty at the hands of Chalobah in the 69th minute. In addition, Dean Smith’s team made the European champions suffer because they had other chances, dreaming of achieving a draw. Édouard Mendy was providential for his team after a shot by Kenny McLean.
Mount had a chance for the ‘blues’ in the 49th minute and in the 82nd minute neither Timor Werner nor Havertz could get Chelsea’s third. Romelu Lukaku had another chance, but the one who finally put the 1-3 on the scoreboard was Havertz, after a pass from N’Golo Kanté and after a good movement by the Belgian attacker himself to facilitate the action of his German teammate.
