The Canaries slumped to their second defeat in two games thanks to Juan Mata's superb first half effort.

Hughton was happy with his side's showing and felt the difference between the two teams was that little bit of quality from Mata

"Chelsea came into the game on the back of a real big win, but we were right in it from the first whistle until the end," said Hughton.

"Our goalkeeper hasn't had to make too many saves, the one real bit of quality was shown by them and of course it was a wonderful finish by Mata.

"I thought at one stage when the game opened up I thought we could get something.

"We were close today if we have a little more guile, a little bit more quality in that final third then we get something, but we gave a good account of ourselves.

"If we had got something from the game today I don't think anybody would have begrudged us that because we certainly worked enough for it."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
