Chelsea To Be Too Strong For Hull In The FA Cup On Friday Night

The first of the weekend's televised FA Cup fifth round ties comes from Stamford Bridge on Friday evening as Chelsea take on Hull and we are backing the Blues to book their place in the last-eight with victory...

  • Hull have lost their last six clashes with Chelsea
  • Five of Chelsea's past six wins over Hull have come via a 2-0 scoreline

Priorities

Chelsea helped to quieten rumours about the future of their manager Antonio Conte with a facile win over West Bromwich Albion on Monday night and it was a victory that ensures they remain in the mix for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Conte faces a tricky juggling act though as Chelsea come up against Barcelona in the first leg of their crunch Champions League knockout tie on Tuesday night and the Italian may well opt to rest some players from Friday's game against Hull, albeit Chelsea are looking to enhance a fine record in this particular competition.

The Blues are 2/11 for the win and they have won each of the past six Chelsea v Hull meetings, with the visiting Tigers languishing down in the Championship at the moment.

Head-To-Head

Hull are facing a battle for survival in the second tier of English football but it is very rare that they actually get blown away by teams, with 10 of their past 13 away games going under 2.5 goals.

Hull have shown that they are capable of keeping things tight but Chelsea should ultimately be too strong, with the Chelsea win combined with under 2.5 goals available at a very tempting 13/5 (Coral).

Furthermore, five of Chelsea's past six wins over Hull have come by a 2-0 scoreline - which includes each of the past three at Stamford Bridge - and a repeat of the 2-0 correct score on Friday can be backed at 6/1 (William Hill), while those who want a more cautious bet could do worse than back a Chelsea win with under 3.5 goals at 21/20 (Coral.co.uk).
