Comments:

League position: 4th Gonzalo Higuaín became the first player to score twice on their home Premier League debut for Chelsea since Mario Stanić against West Ham United on 19 August 2000. He had now scored 38 goals in 37 league appearances under manager Maurizio Sarri. This was the first time that the Blues had scored five goals in a game since a 5-0 win against Stoke City in the Premier League on 30 December 2017. They avoided losing three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since November 2015.

Comments:

League position: 20th Gonzalo Higuaín’s opener was the 100th goal that Huddersfield Town had conceded in the Premier League (played 63, scored 41). The Terriers had now lost 500 games in the top division (played 1,323, won 491). They had now lost 12 of their last 13 games in all competitions and failed to score in eight of them.
