‘Cobham is a cheat code’: Chelsea fans heap praise on club’s academy following starring displays of key trio vs Norwich

Chelsea vs Norwich

Chelsea and Norwich are currently playing out a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues headed into the game looking to maintain top spot in the Premier League, whilst Norwich were eyeing their first win since their latest return to the top-flight.

But even though Chelsea were without the services of N’Golo Kante, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner on Saturday, it was still hard to see Norwich getting anything out of the tie.

And, unsurprisingly, it did not take long for Chelsea to open the scoring. Mason Mount unleashed a superb strike from the edge of the box which gave the Norwich keeper no chance:

Callum Hudson-Odoi then doubled the Blues’ lead after 18 minutes, with the winger slotting home after being slipped in by a cute ball from Mateo Kovacic.

And the Londoner’s dominance continued throughout the first half, with a Reece James effort 41 minutes in killing the game off.

Cobham boys dominate Norwich

All three of Chelsea’s goals in the first 45 would be scored by products of their famed Cobham academy. Mason Mount also provided the assist for James’ strike.

As a result, Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to heap praise on their club’s academy, with just some of the tweets showcased below:
