Highlight and Video: Mason Mount Hattrick Against Norwich Secures Chelsea Top spot

After constantly trying his luck against Norwich City, Chelsea supporters have been pushing Antonio Rudiger to score.

The Blues jumped off to a 3-0 lead against the Canaries at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, as they returned to Premier League play after a 4-0 triumph in the Champions League against Malmo.

Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Reece James, all academy graduates, all scored in a sensational first-half for Thomas Tuchel’s side against the relegation prospects.

In the second half, Ben Chilwell made it 3-0 before an own goal by Max Aarons after superb work by Hudson-Odoi made it 5-0.

Rudiger, who returned to the Chelsea Premier League side after missing the previous match against Brentford due to a back ailment, looked to feel left out after seeing his colleagues run amok at Stamford Bridge.

He had three shots in the first 45 minutes, according to WhoScored, the most on the Chelsea squad beside goal scorer Mount. Only one of them, however, was successful in locating the target.

Chelsea supporters rushed to Twitter during the first half to express their desire for a Rudiger goal against the Canaries.

So far in his Chelsea career, the 28-year-old has not been very fruitful.

In 160 appearances for the club in all competitions, Rudiger has netted just eight goals – the most recent of which coming against Tottenham Hotspur last month.

Blues fans will hope that he can add to his account before his future is definitively decided. Rudiger remains out of contract at the end of the season, with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain reported to be interested in his signature.
