The Chelsea vs. Hull match will be played on Friday, February 16, at the Stamford Bridge, London. This is the fifth FA Cup round match. Chelsea defeated Newcastle by 3:0 in the previous round, while Hull was better than Nottingham Forest by 2:1 in the previous match.
In their previous ten games, Chelsea had eight victories, while two matches ended in a draw. The last victory for Hull against Chelsea came in 1988, in League Division Two! Chelsea is in a series of six wins against Hull.
Chelsea is not in a great form and they are certainly focused on Premier League and Champions League more than FA Cup. Antonio Conte will give the chance to squad rotation players in the upcoming game and the stars of the team will mostly rest and prepare for the upcoming Premier League clashes. On the other hand, the eventual defeat against the team such as Hull in this stage of the competition would be deeply disappointing for Chelsea's board. Because of that, we expect that Conte squad will remain disciplined and finish the job in the first match. Latest matches: Chelsea FC

Hull is struggling in the battle against relegation at the moment. That was totally unexpected, if we have in mind that they played in Premier League not too long ago. They will do everything in their power to surprise Chelsea, but that is easier said than done.

Chelsea is the absolute favorite to win the upcoming game. We don't expect to see many goals.
