            Traveling supporters at Carrow Road shouted Roman Abramovich’s name hours after the UK government sanctioned Chelsea’s Russian owner.

Chelsea’s players responded to one of the most dramatic days in the club’s 117-year history by bursting into a 2-0 lead inside the first 15 minutes on their route to a fourth consecutive league triumph.

Trevoh Chalobah scored in the third minute after meeting Mason Mount’s corner, and Kai Havertz set up Mount for his ninth goal of the season.

When halftime, Norwich improved significantly, and Teemu Pukki gave his team hope with a penalty after Chalobah handled, but Havertz clinched the points for Chelsea with a late third.

While Chelsea’s third-place finish was reinforced, Norwich is now five points from safety with only ten games remaining.
