Chelsea edge past Hull
Saturday’s late FA Cup 4th round tie saw Chelsea travel to Hull.
Rather unsurprisingly, it would be Chelsea who emerged from the tie victorious.
However, the Premier League outfit did make the clash much more difficult than it probably needed to be.
Michy Batshuayi opened the scoring inside six minutes, and it looked as though the Blues were set for an easy victory.
But Frank Lampard’s side wouldn’t bag their second goal until the 64th minute, with Chelsea once again lacking that killer instinct in the final third.
Hull then pulled one back 12 minutes from time, but the Championship side were unable to add a second.
Highlights: Hull 1-Chelsea 2
Tammy Abraham update
As mentioned above, Batshuayi led the line for Chelsea on Saturday.
But despite the lower-league opposition, the Belgian wasn’t exactly in great form.
As a result, the Chelsea faithful will likely be hoping that Tammy Abraham will be back from injury as soon as possible.
The Chelsea hitman was injured vs Arsenal earlier this month.
As such, after the Hull clash, Frank Lampard would provide an update on Abraham, but the Chelsea boss didn’t really give too much away in terms of when the striker could return:
“He has been getting lightly into the water and all these things. I said yesterday that there’s no fracture but other than that there is still some swelling so I don’t know. I don’t know much of the detail.”
