“Most important is the win,” Mason Mount told BBC Sport after the Norwich win. “For me personally to score, it feels good. The more numbers I get the happier I am and I’m obviously happy with the win too.
“The last three times I’ve played here I’ve scored so it’s been good. Really enjoyed it today. I got the goal early on so it made me relaxed. It’s been a good stadium for me to play.
“It was very important [to start bright]. It set us up well for the first half. I thought we dominated but we let the game slip away in the second half. We need to be stronger and look at that.
“You can’t really avoid it as there’s a lot going on. We have to focus on what we do on the pitch. We had a game today and that was the only thing we could focus on. We did that today so now it’s about Sunday. You try not to look too much into it.”
“There’s teams pushing. I don’t know how many games have been played but they’re coming and we have to stay focused to keep going up. It might be difficult to get second but that’s our goal and we need to keep pushing for that.”
Chelsea defeated Norwich 3-1 amid a backdrop of Roman Abramovich being sanctioned by the UK government for his close links with Vladimir Putin.
In those circumstances, the Blues performed quite well. Mount was one of the better players who registered a goal and an assist in the first half.
