‘Insane this season’: Some Chelsea fans hail their player’s display in 7-0 Norwich win

Chelsea thrashed Norwich City 7-0 on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League – and some Blues fans on Twitter loved the display from their midfielder Mateo Kovacic. 

Chelsea moved four points clear at the top of the league table by dismantling bottom side Norwich at Stamford Bridge in the early kick-off.

Mason Mount (three), Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and Ben Chilwell were all on the scoresheet for the Blues. Also, there was an unfortunate own goal from Norwich’s Max Aarons. 

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel made five changes to the starting line-up that won in the Champions League in midweek, but it did very little to disrupt the momentum of the team.

Chelsea fans pick out Mateo Kovacic v Norwich

A selection of supporters on social media believe that Kovacic was a real star of the show for them.

Kovacic, 27, helped run the show from the centre of the park in possession. 

The central midfielder has definitely added an extra attacking edge to his game, providing two more assists in the rout against Norwich.

He’s now up to five Premier League assists already this season, which is more than he’s got in the last two domestic seasons combined (four).

N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are the central midfielders that usually get the most attention from pundits and neutrals, but the Croatian is just as important right now.

Here are some Blues fans waxing lyrical about Kovacic:
