Chelsea v Hull City Preview, Premiership, Sunday 22nd January 2017.

Chelsea continued their dominance last Saturday with a solid 3 – 0 win away from home against last seasons champions Leicester City and stay seven points clear atop the English premiership. Tottenham Hotspurs play Manchester City on Saturday so do have the opportunity to close the gap to just four points, yet I cannot see Chelsea being too worried about not winning this game at home to Hull City.

The clubs next game is an FA Cup 4th round tie at home to Brentford and although the Championship club have beaten Chelsea before in the competition I cannot see that happening again this time round. Some hard games coming up for the league leaders with a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool and then followed by a game against Arsenal at the Bridge, with a trip to Burnley also thrown in there to mix it up.

Hull City may of won last week at home against AFC Bournemouth but can we really see the side pull one over the league leaders this Sunday? I know I wrote it recently regarding Swansea City’s chances at beating this in form Liverpool side, but surely Hull City can’t take down Chelsea!? Did I curse Chelsea there like I could of possibly done to same to Liverpool who knows, but I can only hope!

Now I know that maybe seen as me hating on Chelsea, but let me assure you I am not. I love watching their stylish football and they do deserve most if not all of their wins this season. It’s just that I do often like to watch an underdog come out on top on the day as it surely mixes up the top of the league a little more. Hull have some really tough games coming up against Liverpool and Manchester United twice.

Chelsea Team News:

Chelsea want away striker Diego Costa is once again available for this match having recovered from a back injury. Yet it is still uncertain if the Spain international will start or if at all feature for Chelsea. Club captain John Terry has returned from his suspension with him more than likely to be put on the bench and not start.

Hull City Team News:

Robert Snodgrass is once again injured  having missed training this week due to a muscle strain. With him being a doubt the manager could more likely select a new member of his team with Evandro and Oumar Niasse possibly making their debuts. Midfielder David Meyler also returns and hope he could be selected having recently returned from injury.

Chelsea v Hull City Head to Head Statistics:

As expected it is Chelsea who have completely dominated in the last five head to head encounters with the home side winning all five games played. In total we have ten games recorded between the pair with Hull City having never recorded a win against their opponents. They have however drawn twice, leaving Chelsea with an impressive eight victories.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the ten games played out against each other we have seen a total of twenty five goals scored. This is going to give us a goals per game average of 2.5 which has been seen the once back in 2015. Hull City have only scored on four occasions against Chelsea, leaving an incredible twenty one scored by the home team. The below selection could be a good option for Sundays game at The Bridge.

Chelsea v Hull City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Premier League football this Sunday afternoon brings us league leaders Chelsea to face relegation battling Hull City. The game will be played at Stamford Bridge and can be viewed live on Sky Sports 1 and of course in glorious high definition. I really need to learn my lesson when saying a side has no chance at beating another with the Liverpool verses Swansea City game as an example this weekend.

That said…. can Hull City really do any damage to this Chelsea sides hopes of winning back this Premiership title? I highly doubt it!! (applies possible curse) But joking aside I really cannot see Chelsea slipping up on Sunday especially after such an incredible season so far. With them winning an incredible fifteen games in the last seventeen played I am sure this Sunday will see them grab another easy three points.

Hull City have a mountain to climb if they wish to build on last weeks win over AFC Bournemouth and although they are still in the relegation positions they did climb off of the bottom of the table with Sunderland losing to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. If they did manage to beat this Chelsea side then they could replace Swansea City and actually be out of the bottom three, but that is a big if.

My predictions for this game does of course see Chelsea to win this match and I cannot see them allowing Hull City many chances of actually scoring a goal on Sunday. With the away side only scoring a total of four in all games played against Chelsea it would be a good option to take Chelsea to win to nil as my banker. The next I am going for is a Chelsea rout and to win the game 5 – 0 on the day!
