Chelsea survived a late scare in the FA Cup to overcome Hull City 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday.
Frank Lampard’s side advanced to the last 16 of the competition after goals from Michy Batshuayi and Fikayo Tomori.
Kamil Grosicki scored late on for Hull and although they pushed hard for the equaliser, Chelsea held on.
Hull started the game brightly but it was Chelsea who took the lead in the opening six minutes when Batshuayi’s deflected close range effort found the net.
Chelsea were close to scoring more goals but Hull goalkeeper George Long twice denied Mason Mount and saved from Marcos Alonso just before the break.
The visitors doubled their lead just after the hour mark when Tomori headed in from Ross Barkley’s free kick.
With 13 minutes remaining, Hull got themselves back in the game when Grosicki’s free kick deflected off Mateo Kovacic and found the net, but they failed to grab an equaliser.
