Chelsea went to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night and tallied three goals and as many points, winning 3-1.

A goal in the 23rd minute from Tiemoue Bakayoko opened the scoring for Chelsea (11-2-4), and forced Huddersfield out of their shell. The visitors struck again via a Willian goal in the 43rd.

A Pedro goal in the 50th all but secured the points for Chelsea, who are momentarily tied for second place in the Premier League table with Manchester United but trail on goal difference.

Huddersfield Town (5-3-9), who got a late goal from Laurent Depoitre, have lost five of their last six Premier League matches and are a mere five points above the drop at the moment.
