Caltex Socceroo midfielder Aaron Mooy was unable to stop a firing Chelsea in the English Premier League, with the Terriers falling to a 3-1 loss on Wednesday morning (AEDT).
Chelsea controlled the match from the outset and while Huddersfield held out early on, the champions’ class eventually shone through.
Midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko gave the Blues the lead on 23 minutes before Brazilian star Willian doubled the lead just before the break with a powerful header.

Spanish winger Pedro fired an unstoppable strike into the top corner just five minutes after the break to secure the win for Antonio Conte’s men.

Mooy was one of Town’s best on the night and got through another 90 minutes.
The defeat sees the Terries remain in 12th spot on the EPL ladder ahead of their trip to Watford this weekend.
