Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly is the first player in 16 years to score on his Chelsea home debut against Tottenham.

The previous player to do so was former Ghana midfielder Michael Essien in March 2006.

The Senegalese scored Chelsea's first goal in a draw against Tottenham (2:2) in the second round of the Premier League.

Koulibaly had made his Premier League debut in the win at Everton the previous Sunday.
