Chelsea earn three points against Hull City thanks to Willian and Diego Costa, who both scored two amazing goals curling the ball into the top left corner from the same position.

Free-kick specialist Snodgrass went close to scoring the 1-0 after 3′ and former Tottenham midfielder Mason worried Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois with a shot from 25 yards just a couple of minutes before the halftime whistle.

Anyway the Belgium international keeper was ready to scramble the ball.

In the second half Antonio Conte‘s side bounced back from a poor performance as Willian scored curling the ball into the top left corner from 25 yards at 61′.

Another amazing strike secured an impressive win only 5 minutes after the opener: Blues’ forward Diego Costa scored, nearly from the same position, with another curled shot which flew past Hull City goalkeeper Marshall.

N’Golo Kantè missed a clear attempt to score as he didn’t materialize a great counter-attack led by Diego Costa, who linked up with the Frenchman who did not find the goal and his shot went wide above the bar.

Marcos Alonso picked up the first start in the Premier League with his new side, while Nathaniel Calobah made his debut in Premier League after playing the second half against Leicester in the EFL Cup second round.

Crucial win for Chelsea, who reach 6th place with 13 points in the league table.

Chelsea struggled and did not succeed in getting the lead in the first half as Hull City showed a good performance.

Free-kick specialist Snodgrass went close to the 1-0 after 3′ and former Tottenham midfielder Mason worried Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois with a shot from 25 yards just a few minutes before the halftime whistle, anyway the Belgium international was ready to scramble the ball away.

Still a clean sheet draw after 45′, will the Blues bounce back from a quiet and poor first half? Follow with us the game.
