Chelsea player's funny two-word response after Rudiger punched him round the face against Norwich

Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah posted a humorous reaction to one particular moment during the 7-0 obliteration of Norwich City on Saturday.

Whilst Norwich suffered a brutal blow in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge last weekend, Chalobah also took a knock himself.

During one of the many Chelsea celebrations, Antonio Rudiger randomly decided to punch the young centre-back in the head.

An action only the ridiculous Rudiger would even consider doing.

Although it appeared pretty gentle from afar, the contact clearly left an impression on Chalobah.

The 22-year-old Tweeted his reply to Rudiger’s right-hook with just two words and a pair of emojis.

Chelsea crush the Canaries

For all the play fighting within Chelsea’s camp, there was nothing light-hearted about their performance against Norwich.

Thomas Tuchel’s team took the Canaries apart feather by feather.

By the final whistle, the away side were bruised, battered and beyond repair.

Mason Mount netted his first senior hat-trick for the Blues, whilst Callum Hudson-Odoi capped off a fine afternoon with his first of the season.

Reece James added the third, delicately dinking Tim Krul with the finish of an esteemed striker, not a wing-back.

Who needs Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner?

Ben Chilwell continued his terrific scoring form just minutes into the second half before a Max Aarons own-goal made it six shortly after the hour mark.

To compound Norwich’s misery even further, Ben Gibson picked up two yellow cards and was sent for an early shower.

When it rains, it pours.

It was the first time Chelsea had netted more than four times in a game since Tuchel became manager.

A statement to the rest of the division that the title might just belong to the South West Londoners this season.
