Giroud, Willian on target as Chelsea thrash Hull City

Candreva came close to joining Chelsea- agent

Hull City boss Nigel Adkins has insisted that he was pleased with his side's efforts in the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Even though Conte is expect to make a number of chances to his first team, it's hard to envision anything other than a comprehensive victory for Chelsea against an injury-hit Hull side that have lost 26 of their last 38 matches on the road.

Willian needed only two minutes to give Chelsea the lead against Hull, curling the ball in with his left foot from the edge of the penalty area.

Before finally getting on the scoresheet, Giroud showed his ability to win the ball, holding it up well deep in midfield, as he played big parts in the build up for the opening two goals.

Chelsea have had precious little fun in 2018, but the good vibes were well and truly back at Stamford Bridge against Hull City.

Mason required surgery after an accidental clash of heads with Gary Cahill while playing for Hull 13 months ago, but having returned to training in May he this week announced his retirement off the back of medical advice. "When you score your confidence grows", Conte added. "I don't think Bakayoko".

To many Americans, Presidents Day means retail sales and discounts or even a day off, if they're lucky. William Moore McCulloch of OH argued that perhaps we wouldn't want to pay tribute to all presidents.

"Before an important game against Barcelona, tonight I go home with many doubts in my mind which is the best starting 11 to start the game". But it's right to be so.

"We must take the time to make the best decision about who will start the game".

Conte chose to rest Alonso in Chelsea's 4-1 defeat against Watford before he went on miss the West Brom and Hull City game in the Premier League and FA Cup respectively.

Hull return to Chelsea on Friday in the fifth round of the FA Cup, although the one-time England global is not expected to be present. But for the Italian manager, it was the clean sheet which was far more important than the goals feat.

"To play against Barcelona is a great challenge for us". "I hope to see always this type of performance because, when Willy plays in this way, it is a great joy for me, the team, the club and our fans".

Michael Dawson (groin) faces a late fitness test after missing the last two games while defensive trio Ola Aina, Fikayo Tomori and Michael Hector are out due to being unable to face parent club Chelsea in the Cup. We are capable of going all the way and let's see how the team turns up against Barcelona.
