Chelsea went ahead in their game against Hull City with the hope of gaining three points to maintain their top spot position. With the result being a positive one, Chelsea can go home knowing they’ll atleast have another few days at the top.
Hazard proved hazardous as he gave Chelsea the lead in the 7th minute! The Blues were in domination right from the start. That’s what sets a team up for a win!
Although they led, it still wasn’t a smooth match for Chelsea. Two players-not one, but two-were booked for diving! Two! We have to question Mourinho’s tactics. However, concerns were also raised with Hull as Huddlestone was shown a red card in the second half of the match. They also couldn’t manage even one shot on target. How pitiful.
Although the loss of a player didn’t appear to change the dynamic of the game, Diego Costa managed to double Chelsea’s lead in the 68th minute!
Chelsea remain leaders. Chelsea players now have the awareness that diving is not needed to win when they have such talent. Has the previous matches hindered their confidence or can they continue to push ahead?
