Chelsea vs Hull City - Betting Tips and Predictions

Cahill said he was "devastated" by the news in a Twitter post on Tuesday, but Conte has not spoken to his captain about it and will not hesitate to pick him in the Chelsea defence when Hull return to Stamford Bridge for an FA Cup fifth round tie on Friday.

Last time: Chelsea 2 Hull City 0; January 22, 2017; Premier League.

Chelsea are fourth in the league and 19 points adrift of leaders City with 11 games left, but Conte said a good run was vital to maintain their advantage over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal who are directly below them in the league.

Antonio Conte side's take on Barcelona next midweek but considering the players have had a few days off, we could see a pretty strong lineup put forth by the manager.

"I'm not sure if I saw it coming, you never really know, and you don't want to step on toes by asking too many questions".

"[.] In the past, in Carabao Cup, in FA Cup I gave them the chance to play". Football is this. Sometimes it can happen, this type of situation.

Conte readily indulged talk of Chelsea sacking him earlier this month, just over half a season after leading the team to the top-flight title, as he took to publicly criticising the club's transfer dealings and suffered consecutive defeats against Bournemouth and Watford. It was an unlucky situation.

Serena had previously said that her path back had been full of "ups and downs", crediting Venus with helping her regain her rhythm.

"It gives other players an opportunity", Adkins said.

"I repeat: Gary is a fantastic guy, a fantastic person".

Cup competitions now represent the only hope of salvaging a frustrating season with a trophy for Chelsea, as well as an opportunity for Conte to overcome a personal hurdle; he has never won a major cup trophy in his coaching career. The latter has played only three times this season, and he has been a huge loss to the team, as they have struggled to replace his goal threat. But I think after the break we didn't need to speak about that game.

But if things turn out as planned, we could very well see another "Academy Day", with the usual trio of Ampadu, Hudson-Odoi, and Sterling joined by midfielder Kyle Scott and defender Trevoh Chalobah in the squad for this game.

"It was down by the away end and we were over in the dugout so it was quite hard to see what was going on", he said. We want to win every competition, there's not one priority.

The six-time English top flight champions have found the back of the net three times in their last six games with at least three goals in all competitions.

"It's right to have a programme, to have a plan, to face these two tough weeks in the right way". We'll be up against it defensively because we're going up against a very good side.
