Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain was the hero for Chelsea as he scored his first two goals for the club in their 5-0 victory over bottom of the table Huddersfield.

Higuain failed to score in his first two games but proved his worth against Jan Siewart’s charges scoring two fantastic goals as Chelsea bounced back from midweek defeat to Bournemouth.

Eden Hazard also grabbed a brace while David Luiz added another to provide temporary solace for under fire Sarri, as Huddersfield’s extend their run without a win to twelve games.

Elsewhere, Wolves continued their good form with a third win on the spin defeating Everton by 3-1 at Goodison Park. Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Andre Gomes’ equaliser later in the half.

Everton have been incredibly inconsistent this season under Marco Silva and were undone by goals from Raul Jimenez and Leandro Dendoncker at Goodison Park.

Ashley Barnes rescued a late point for Burnley in their clash with fellow strugglers Southampton at Turf Moor. Nathan Redmond had given the away side the lead ten minutes into the second half but his goal was cancelled out by Barnes from the penalty spot after a foul on the debuting Peter Crouch.

Fulham find themselves seven points adrift of safety after defeat to London rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Luka Milivojevic and Jeffrey Schupp’s goals meant that Palace jumped to 14th while Fulham continue to languish in the relegation zone with time running out for Ranieri’s side.

Watford and Brighton played out a drab 0-0 draw in the final 3pm kick-off in the Premier League while in the early game, Spurs jumped into second following a late Heung Min-Son goal to see off Newcastle at Wembley.
