Hull City 0-2 Chelsea

1 Oct

Willian and Eden Hazard


Chelsea’s victory over Hull came after successive league defeats by Arsenal and Liverpool

Chelsea stopped the rot after successive Premier League defeats as they ground down Hull at the KCOM Stadium.

The hosts enjoyed the better of a cagey first half but went behind when Willian swept home a curling shot after good work from Diego Costa after the break.

Costa found the top corner with a similar strike to double the lead after Nemanja Matic’s powerful run.

Hull never recovered and could have been further behind but for Pedro’s poor finishing from six yards.
