EPL: Higuain Equals 19-Year Chelsea Record

Gonzalo Higuain is already proving his worth for Chelsea as the Argentine banged in two goals on Saturday as the Blues romped to a 5-0 win over bottom team, Huddersfield.

Chelsea who were beaten 4-0 by AFC Bournemouth in their last outing were more business-like in their approach against Huddersfield.

Higuain opened the scoring after 16 minutes with his first goal for Chelsea before Hazard made it 2-0 with a penalty in first-half injury-time and then added the third in the 66th minute.

January signing Higuain curled in his second shortly afterwards (69) before David Luiz headed in from a corner late in the game in the 86th minute.

Higuain is the first Chelsea player to score twice on their home league debut for the club since Mario Stanic vs West Ham in August 2000.

With the big win,  Chelsea regained fourth place from Arsenal who visit champions Manchester City tomorrow.

On their part, Huddersfield stay 12 points adrift at the bottom of the table.
