The English Premier League returned this weekend as clubs played their 9th game of the season. The title race has also gathered momentum as clubs at the top of the table continue to grind results that will earn them the much-coveted trophy at the end of the season.
Thomas Tuchel and his Chelsea side hosted struggling Norwich City at Stanford Bridge in an early kick-off game. Chelsea who is currently leading on the standings were looking to extend their grip at the summit of the table by easing past Daniel Farke's men.
The Blues however found the task to be easy and a walk in the park. They blew away relegation-threatened Norwich City by pumping seven goals past Tim Krul thanks to Mason Mount, Reece James, Hudson Odoi, Ben Chilwell, and Max Aarons's own goal.
However, much attention was focused on Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell who was again on the score sheet this weekend. The Englishman has been on the scoring spree since getting a nod from Thomas Tuchel in the last three weeks.
Chilwell has now scored three goals from the left-back position. The competition between him and another scoring defender, Marcos Alonso has been intense with each of them scoring when given an opportunity.
On Saturday, Chilwell was impressive both defensive-wise and offensive-wise. He scored one goal, created one chance, made 2 clearances, and two tackles. If he continues with this performance in his Chelsea career he will be ranked the same level as Chelsea legend Ashley Cole who bossed the left-back spot during his career as a Blue.
