Trevoh Chalobah​, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz all got on the score-sheet, though it was the actions of their fans that grabbed headlines.

Chelsea supporters chanted Abramovich's ​name before kick-off and during the victory at Norwich. 

The chants were soon drowned out by boos from the home stands.

Chelsea's win on the road sees them solidify their third-place position in the league.

Speaking after the match, Tuchel shared his thoughts on the sanctions imposed by the UK government, which includes a limit of £20,000 travel costs for away games. 

"As long as we have enough shirts and a bus to drive to the games, we'll be there and will compete hard," he said. 

"We take it day by day. I didn't see that coming yesterday and I don't know what is coming tomorrow.

"Of course, the subject is there, the talks are going on, so there is a certain distraction. The level of impact it has - the news of today is big - in time we don't know how big.

"We cannot influence it."
