Chelsea defeated Huddersfield Town 3-0 to take their place at the top of the Premier League table.
Chelsea took the lead through N’Golo Kante. Willian delivered the ball into the penalty area from the left-hand-side. The ball fell to Kante, who fired into the floor and into the back of the net. Did he mean it? We’ll never know, but they all count! Click here to see the goal if you missed it.
Before the half-time break, Jorginho added a second from the spot. Marcos Alonso was hacked down and Chelsea were awarded a penalty. Jorginho stepped up and cooly found the back of the net. You can see his first Chelsea goal by clicking here.
Chelsea were not done there, however. After Eden Hazard’s introduction, he drove at the heart of the Huddersfield defence before passing to Pedro. The Spaniard delicately chipped the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net. It’s worth worth a watch – click here!
