Tuchel praise mason mount as he bagged a hat-trick for the first time

Mount’s hattrick was added by goals for Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and Ben Chilwell, with Max Aarons putting through his own net as Chelsea FC nailed seven to nil against Norwich city , who had Ben Gibson with red card and was sent off at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel praised Mount’s importance to Chelsea’s 3-4-3 formation, with mount able to fill an important role to bridge midfield and attack.

“Well as you know, we play in most games with three strikers and Mason is one of them,” said Tuchel.

“You can say he’s maybe between an eight and a 10, so not a real striker, so in that way we really depend on him. He plays an important key role.

“The wing-backs play with more freedom to help our strikers really in the last line and they feel more and more confident.

“We like his style, where he comes from, his personality and he’s a top guy. So we’re very happy for him.”

No Romelu Lukaku, no Timo Werner, no worries as Chelsea’s 7-0 destruction against Norwich city showed that even without them, there is still an abundance of firepower available to Thomas Tuchel.

Norwich offered little in the way of resistance, in truth, but that should take nothing away from a tactical Chelsea showing. They have been lauded primarily for their defensive prowess under Tuchel but that’s 11 goals in four days following the 4-0 win over Malmo.

Mason Mount have not scored since this season but he took his first goal brilliantly, showed composure to score the re-taken penalty for his second, then popped up in the right position and time to bag his hat-trick.
