Mason Mount scored a hat-trick and assisted another as Chelsea moved four points clear at the top of the table with a 7-0 win over Norwich City.
Jorginho teed up Mount to open the scoring in the eighth minute.
The leaders doubled their advantage through Callum Hudson-Odoi who slid in from Mateo Kovacic’s pass.
Chelsea then made it three before half-time when Reece James brilliantly dinked the ball in from Mount’s assist.
Norwich substitute Milot Rashica tested Edouard Mendy before Chelsea added a fourth goal on 57 minutes through Ben Chilwell, his fourth in as many matches.
Hudson-Odoi then had a hand in Chelsea’s fifth as his shot deflected in off Max Aarons.
Norwich, who remain bottom, also ended the match a man down after Ben Gibson was sent off before Chelsea added a sixth through Mount’s retaken penalty.
Though Tim Krul had saved the original spot-kick, he was adjudged to have been off his line when the ball was struck.
Mount completed his treble in stoppage-time to secure a third successive victory for Chelsea and put them on 22 points.
