Starting out with a team of many substitutes, Chelsea still beat Hull City 2-1 on the opponent’s field on the evening of January 25.
Goals: Grosicki 78 ‘- Batshuayi 6’, Tomori 64 ‘.
There is no main goalscorer Tammy Abraham and the midfield pillars like N’Golo Kante, Jorginho or Christian Pulisic fuse, but Chelsea only need six minutes to find Hull City net. The ball from the right by-line by Cesar Azpilicueta was completed by Michy Batshuayi with a shot from just inside the penalty area.
A very charming person in the FA Cup, with four times lifting the cup as a player, Frank Lampard understood the meaning of this tournament. If you want a title in your first season at Stamford Bridge, nothing is more feasible than the FA Cup. That’s why Chelsea continue to push Hull, instead of waiting for opportunities. The goal soon added to the excitement of the visitors, which has eight changes compared to the 2-2 Arsenal draw.
Holding the ball up to 65% continuously creates turbulent situations, but when the opportunities pass by the tip of Mason Mount shoes, Azpicueta, obsessed about the lack of a good striker back to Chelsea. This season, Lampard only true Abraham proved sensitive hearing in the penalty area. When lacking striker 1m91 high, his teammates appear to lack confidence in themselves.
Thanks to a defender, Chelsea increased the gap. The ball from Ross Barkley’s fixed situation was neatly closed by Fikayo Tomori with a header from the edge of the net in the 64th minute. Five minutes later, Pedro had another chance to escape down to face the goalkeeper Hull, but the shot His diagonal corner misses the vertical column.
Winning so close, Chelsea took another step in the FA Cup. However, the sluggishness of Marcos Aloso, and the lack of inspiration from players who played extremely well earlier in the season such as Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic showed that “The Blues” desperately needed reinforcements in January, before stepping up. at the decisive stage of the season.
