Premier League | Chelsea beat Huddersfield Town; Crystal Palace get the better of Watford in last minutes
A brilliant display from Willian helped Chelsea register a 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League at the John Smith's Stadium. In another match, Crystal Palace stunned Watford with two goals in the last minutes to climb out of the bottom three for the first time this season.
Huddersfield Town 1 - 3 Chelsea
Willian was the star of the show for Chelsea as he not only scored a goal but also his assistance inspired the defending Premier League champions to a 3-1 win over Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night. Just three days ago, Chelsea suffered a 1-0 away loss to West Ham but in this match, fans witnessed a much-improved performance. Willian, who has spent much of the season performing as a substitute, set up Tiemoue Bakayoko for Chelsea's opener in the 23rd minute and later he doubled the advantage with his header in the 43rd minute of the game. The Brazilian player didn’t stop there as he then set up Pedro for Chelsea's third goal of the night, five minutes after the start of the second-half session. Laurent Depoitre’s goal came as a late consolation for the Huddersfield as it was not enough to stop Chelsea who moved level on points with second-placed Manchester United.
Crystal Palace 2 - 1 Watford
Crystal Palace came from behind to beat Watford 2-1 in a dramatic fashion as the Eagles netted twice in the closing time which helped them move out of the Premier League's bottom three. Watford had looked comfortable until Daryl Janmaat had given the visitors the lead after just three minutes of the game and even they entered the second-half with the lead. The scenario of the game turned when Watford's Tom Cleverley was sent off for a second yellow card in the 87th minute of the game. Bakary Sako scored the equalizer in the 89th minute of the game which was followed by another goal through his fellow substitute James McArthur who netted the winner in the stoppage time. Wilfried Zaha played a crucial role as he created both goals which lifted Palace to the 17th position following a miserable start to the season.
