Having conceded ten goals in their last three games, the Tigers will be keen to restore their bite when Chelsea visit on Saturday. However, the Blues are coming off the back of a similarly poor run of results. Antonio Conte hasn’t won any of his last three Premier League matches.
With trouble at the back undoing Chelsea of late, the Italian coach will have to sort out his ailing defence who still rely heavily on captain John Terry. The problems have started since David Luiz was re-signed from PSG but the Brazilian shouldn’t take all of the blame. In fact, he’s been relatively solid. The biggest culprit is Gary Cahill, who has made costly errors in the last month.
Chelsea have won their last four matches against Hull. They would be expected to stop the rot at the Kingston Communications Stadium. Yes, that’s actually what their stadium is called.
