Hull City hosts Chelsea at the KCOM Stadium in a fixture from the 4th round of the FA Cup
Hull City hosts Chelsea at the KCOM Stadium in a fixture from the 4th round of the FA Cup. In this edition of our football forecast we will present you some information about this game in the city of Hull on Saturday.
At this moment Hull City are playing in the Championship, but their performance during the season is pretty average. Managed by Grant McCann, the Tigers are currently 12th in the standings with 39 points won. In terms of current shape Hull City can improve, because they lost their last two games against Fulham and Derby County.
In the FA Cup Hull City reached the 4th round after a difficult 3-2 win against Rotherham United in the beginning of the month. The target man Tom Eaves was the hero for the visitors, scoring a hattrick for his team. Chelsea must keep an eye on Eaves, because he looks dangerous at the moment.
Chelsea progressed in the FA Cup after a comfortable 2-0 over Nottingham Forest at the Stamford Bridge. The Blues scored their goals in the first half when Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ross Barkley put the ball in the net.
In the Premier League Chelsea are still 4th in the standings with 40 points, but Frank Lampard’s team won just one point from the last two games against Newcastle United and Arsenal.
Against Arsenal Chelsea had the opportunity to play with a man more on the pitch after David Luiz’ red card in the 26th minute, but they still didn’t win and the match ended with a 2-2 draw. Jorginho and Cesar Azpilicueta’s goals in Bernd Leno’s net were not enough for the three points.
In our football forecast we expect a tough game for Chelsea against Hull City on Saturday. The Championship teams are usually pretty difficult to play against on their own grounds, so Frank Lampard must find a way to break the hosts.
