Chelsea 5 – Huddersfield 0
Chelsea returned to winning ways on Saturday with a thumping 5-0 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League.
It was a good result for the Blues following their 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth last week.
Gonzalo Higuain scored twice against the Terriers to open his Premier League goalscoring account.
Eden Hazard also chipped in with a brace in a man of the match performance from the Belgian.
David Luiz wrapped up the win with a header.

Can Chelsea finish the season in the top four?
Maurizio Sarri’s side are fourth in the league after the Huddersfield game.
Chelsea’s next two league matches will reveal a lot more about whether the Pensioners can end the season with a Champions League berth.
The Blues travel to Man City in the league in midweek.
Chelsea’s next league match after that is a home game against Tottenham on February 27.

Eden Hazard: How Chelsea beat Man City
After the Huddersfield match, Eden Hazard spoke to Chelsea TV.
The Belgian started off by discussing how Higuain’s style differs from the likes of Olivier Giroud.
Then attention turned to the Man City match. Of course, Chelsea beat the Sky Blues earlier in the season at the Bridge 2-0.
So can the Blues do it again?
Hazard believes Chelsea “need to be focused… But we are Chelsea. We can beat anyone if we want.”
On how to beat Man City specifically, Hazard said the following:
N’Golo (Kante) and David (Luiz). That’s the best way to win the game.
It’s going to be a different game. I think they will have the ball, because City have these kind of players.
We will defend well and score one goal or two.
