Manager’s Post match comment
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel:
“We played a good performance. We were sharp and putting a lot of effort. We pressed high and won many balls; we played with a high rhythm and created a lot of chances. To score seven you also need a bit of luck and momentum, but it was a good effort.”
“This is just one game, the next one follows on Tuesday evening (the EFL cup). The players deserve all the credit, but it’s also only one game.”
“The focus was that we keep the same intensity and we create opportunities. This is what we demanded. You need luck to score and you need the moment. That’s why I’m happy because intensity was high and the rhythm was high.”
Talking about Mason Mount performance, he added:
“no matter how satisfied the coach is, the offensive guys need goals to be fully happy. He waited too long, so it was good that he got some goals today.”
Norwich boss Daniel Farke:
“We said before the game that it was toughest task in world football. We wanted to be at the top of our game, but we were not. We were too slow with the ball, against the ball and with our decision making. That’s why we lost the game.”
“We were not sharp enough with the runs in behind – this was a topic during the week. The players are disappointed, but there’s no need to punish them even more. We had decisions on the pitch that were brutal,. We were a bit over motivated that we conceded the red card and three more goals”
“I told the players whatever happens, we use the next two days to forget about this because it’s not season defining. One of the season defining games comes in our next home game. It’s not good for our confidence to concede seven goal. We’ll be disappointed for the next two days. After that we keep going.”
