Chelsea defeated Norwich 7-0 as hosts of Stamford Bridge. Four Englishmen scored in the same match for the first time in the history of the Premier League.
Mason Mount scored a hat-trick and Ben Chillwell, Callum Hudson-Odoy and Reese James added one goal each.
Thus, for the first time, Chelsea has four or more English players who score in one Premier League match.
This was happening for the first time in the Premiership in October 2016, after Bournemouth and Hull City played against each other.
Chillwell scored to make the score 4-0 and thus became the first English footballer to score in four consecutive Premier League games after Frank Lampard in February 2013.
The match was the 18th in which Chelsea scored six or more goals in the Premier League, which is more than any other team in the history of the league.
Mount became the 20th different player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.
Only Arsenal have more different goal scorers who have scored a hat trick in the league.
