Hull City vs Chelsea Match Preview

Chelsea’s inconsistency has lasted three months now, but their FA Cup tie away to Hull City offers the chance to build some confidence before a daunting run of fixtures in February.

The Blues are crying out for some experienced signings to help their young players who have had to admirably shoulder the burden this term after last summer’s transfer ban, but even the more senior individuals appear to be struggling – goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga the latest to have found himself in the firing line.

Frank Lampard’s side, who most recently lost 1-0 at Newcastle in the dying seconds and drew 2-2 with 10-man Arsenal after being ahead twice, need a morale boost ahead of next month’s tests which are away to Leicester, at home to a Manchester United side that have beaten them twice already, followed by Tottenham and Bayern Munich at Stamford Bridge.

But at least Chelsea have an excellent FA Cup record against Hull (see stats above) and it will be disappointing if they cannot get through this tie at the first attempt.

Hull are having a patchy campaign, their wins having come in bursts, but they have lost their last two games 1-0 to dent their chances of pushing their way into the Championship play-offs.

The Tigers will be up for this assignment, but even if Lampard rotates his squad he has plenty of high-quality players awaiting an opportunity and so Chelsea are backed to grind their way into the next round.
