Chelsea in 7th heaven as Man City lay down law in Brighton******
LONDON, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- Mason Mount scored a hat-trick to help Chelsea continue at top of the Premier League this weekend with a 7-0 thrashing of bottom of the table Norwich.
Norwich travelled to Stamford Bridge after consecutive 0-0 draws, but hopes of a third clean sheet vanished as soon as the eighth minute when Mount opened the scoring, and Hudson Odoi doubled the lead 10 minutes later.
The game was over as a contest when Reese James made it 3-0 before halftime and Ben Chilwell and an Aarons' own goal made it 5-0 before Mount rounded off his hat-trick with two goals in the last five minutes.
Manchester City were quickly into gear as they won 4-1 away to Brighton, who had kicked off the weekend in fourth place in the table.
The game was just about over after half an hour after Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola's side in the 13th minute, before Phil Foden added a brace in the 28th and 31st minutes.
Alexis Mac Allister scored a penalty for Brighton with nine minutes left to play, but the result was never in doubt and Riyad Mahrez highlighted City's superiority with their 4th goal deep into injury time.
Former Everton striker Josh King scored a hat-trick as Watford twice came back from behind to claim an astonishing 5-2 win at Goodison Park to give Claudio Ranieri his first win as Watford coach.
Tom Davis put Everton ahead only for King to cancel out his goal 10 minutes later, but it looked as if Richarlison's 63rd minute strike would win it for Everton, before Watford blitzed home four goals in the last 12 minutes. Juraj Kucka equalized before two goals from King turned the game around and Emmanuel Bonaventura added a fifth in injury time.
Rodrigo Moreno's last-minute penalty saved a point for injury hit Leeds United who had fallen behind to Hwang Hee-Chan's first half strike, but did enough to deserve a point.
Callum Wilson poached a goal to give Newcastle United a point they scarcely deserved on their visit to Crystal Palace, who dominated the ball and had most of the chances and looked to be on their way to three points after Christian Benteke's 56th minute owner.
However, Wilson salvaged a point for Newcastle in their first game under Graeme Jones following Stave Bruce's midweek sacking.
Maxwell Cornet showed his value to Burnley by scoring twice in their 2-2 draw away to Southampton, who hit the target through Tino Livramento and Armando Borja.
On Friday night Arsenal claimed an important 3-1 home win against Aston Villa thanks to goals from Thomas Partey, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who followed home after his initial penalty had been saved, and Emile Smith-Rowe put Arsenal 3-0 up before Jacob Ramsey netted a late consolation for Villa, who have lost their last three games.
