Maurizio Sarri will have breathed a huge sigh of relief come 4:45pm yesterday.
After a toxic fallout following the 4-0 loss away at Bournemouth, the Italian's Chelsea side rallied to see off Huddersfield 5-0 at Stamford Bridge.
January signing Gonzalo Higuain notched his first two goals for the club after signing from AC Milan, with Eden Hazard (2) and David Luiz capping off a well-deserved victory.
The win keeps the Blues firmly in the hunt for the top four, but Sarri will know he and his side will face far tougher opposition in the coming weeks.
Chelsea travel to Manchester City next weekend, before a tough FA Cup fifth-round tie with Manchester United.
However, they will be buoyed by their performance against the Terriers and it was Higuain who really caught the eye.
The Argentine was disappointing against Bournemouth and was hauled off after 65 minutes, but he turned on the style yesterday.
And his highlights from the game show that Chelsea may finally have a striker once again in the mould of Diego Costa, someone who Hazard will also love playing alongside.
VIDEO: HIGUAIN'S HIGHLIGHT REEL
His hold-up play was spot on throughout and his chemistry with Hazard was simply too much for Huddersfield's defence to handle.
"Higuain is improving," Sarri said after the game, per BBC. "He wasn't physically at the top when he arrived, because he had a back problem and wasn't involved, so only played a few matches.
"He is a great player. Apart from the goals, he is really very suitable to play very close to Eden."
Finding a striker that can strike up rapport with Hazard is arguably the most key thing for Chelsea right now.
If they can keep the Belgian happy and tailor their game to suit his needs, there is a growing chance that he will opt to extend his contract with the club.
