Hull City will host Chelsea at KCOM stadium on Saturday afternoon as the two teams aim to go back to winning ways.
Hull City were humiliated over the weekend at Anfield, they lost 5-1 to Jurgen Klopp’s side. Goals started raining into Hull’s net as early as 17th minutes of play, A. Lallana scored the first goal, J. milner made it 2-0 as he converted from the spot in 30th minute, 6 minutes later, Sadio Mane made it 3-0. Though D. Meyler pulled 1 goal back for the Tigers, Coutinho’s 52nd minute strike raised the gap back to 3 goals while J. Milner converted his second spot kick of the game in 71st minute as the game ended 5-1. Phelan will look to amend his defense as his team gets ready to face Conte’s Chelsea.
Chelsea’s got their second defeat of the premier league on Saturday, they lost to their Arc London rivals Arsenal. Arsenal defeated Chelsea 3-0 at Emirate Stadium last Saturday, Sanchez, Walcott and Ozil were all on score sheet.prior to Saturday’s defeat, Conte’s men lost 1-2 to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in the previous week. Chelsea have been short on defensive quality in their recent games and they need to address this issue as they travel to KCOM.
