Huddersfield Town 1 Chelsea 3 : Moses Makes 200th Premier League AppearanceChelsea bounced back to winning ways after their disappointing loss last time out with a resounding 3-1 victory against Huddersfield Town at The John Smith's Stadium on Tuesday evening, with Victor Moses starring for the Premier League giants.

The Super Eagles attacker who celebrated his 27th on Tuesday birthday reached his 200th Premier League milestone when he returned to the starting lineup for the Blues after featuring from the bench in the the 1-0 defeat to West Ham last time out.

With barely 23 minutes played, Huddersfield goalkeeper, Jonas Lossl made a horrible clearance under pressure, slipping and inadvertently passing to an opponent which ended with quick interchanges between Eden Hazard and Willian, the latter playing through midfielder, Tiémoué Bakayoko for a cool finish.

Willian would add a second two minutes into the break with a well-taken header, stealing in  unmarked at the left back post to nod over the line and in past a shockingly poor Terriers defence following a Marcos Alonso's cross.

It was 3-0 five minutes after the restart as Chelsea continued to ruthlessly carve their hosts open, Alonso's long ball into the area fell to Willian who deftly laid it off for Pedro to curl a sweet effort into the top corner.

Pedro and Michy Batshuayi missed further chances to add more gloss on the scoreline before Laurent Depoitre grabbed a consolation for Huddersfield via a header in the second minute of stoppage time.

Victor Moses was very active and influential throughout the game, logging the full ninety.
