Chelsea 4, Norwich City 1 - what the nationals said
The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's 4-1 defeat at Chelsea.
The Sunday Mirror: 'Taking the lead was probably the worst thing Norwich could have done because it sparked Chelsea into life. There was only one winner after that.'
The Mail on Sunday: 'Chelsea overcame the early shock of going a goal down to produce a dominant performance, aided, it should be said, by some awful defending.'
The Observer: 'Last season, Holt gave Terry the sort of bullying he has seldom endured and the striker started here as if intent on dishing out similar treatment.'

The Independent: 'Norwich are reported to be suing Paul Lambert, their former manager, but their supporters will be more concerned about the continuing downward drift of the team.'
The Sunday Telegraph: 'At times, Chelsea have tried to defend the indefensible with Terry and Cole. In Norwich they faced a side whose defending was indefensible.'
