Scorers: Chelsea—Fernando Torres 14', Frank Lampard 22', Eden Hazard 31', Branislav Ivanovic 75'; Norwich—Grant Holt 11'
Quickie Recap: Chelsea stayed atop the Premier League table, turning on the style in a home win over struggling Norwich. The Blues trailed early to Holt's opener but recovered in plenty of time to maintain their 100 percent league start at home. Torres, Lampard and Hazard converted in the first half before Ivanovic sealed victory with a well-taken volley in the second.
The Result was Secure When…Really, it was secure as soon as Chelsea took the lead, but Ivanovic's emphatic volleyed goal provided the victory's exclamation point.
One-Two Punch: Hazard and Juan Mata, the dual driving forces of Chelsea's attack, combined in a sweeping move for the Blues' third goal. Mata played a clever final ball for Hazard, who finished with a low shot to the far post.
Just Call him Dave: Cesar Azpilicueta entered as a second-half substitute. But you can just call him Dave if you like.
Canaries Struggling: Norwich, still winless on the season, remained in the relegation zone. The Canaries slipped to 19th on goal differential after Reading drew with Swansea away.
Quotable: Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo (via ChelseaFC.com):
It seems at the moment they are enjoying playing football, that's what they love doing and they are lucky people to be able to do this as a job. We can only try and continue this momentum and form, and that will help everybody involved going forward.
We have a philosophy we are aiming to play and at the moment the team is in healthy form, we are creating lots of chances and scoring lots of goals, with different goalscorers. It's a team that's in good shape.
Up next: Chelsea visit Spurs in the early kickoff on Oct. 20. Norwich host Arsenal in the day's late kickoff.
