Hull City vs. Chelsea - Football Match Report

Lampard concerned by Abraham’s ankle injury

Hull City v Chelsea: Frank Lampard confirms Tammy Abraham will miss FA Cup tie

Despite Michy Batshuayi's early opener and Fikayo Tomori's second-half strike, the Blues had to endure a nervy end to the game after Kamil Grosicki pulled one back for the hosts with 12 minutes left.

Elsewhere, Lampard has also confirmed that the Blues will be without England worldwide Tammy Abraham for the contest, after he picked up an injury in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Tuesday evening.

Chelsea survived but the inconsistent performance underlined Lampard's belief that new recruits are needed after his club were unable to sign players to replace Eden Hazard, who joined Real Madrid during the summer window when the Blues were serving a transfer ban.

"People will argue that but I don't need to get into that battle". "There was a full house here".

"With the chances we had, we can not concede in these kind of circumstances and we have to control better", Chelsea captain Azpilicueta said. It is not the first game where we don't manage the game well.

"You don't expect it to be easy when you come here but we made it harder than we probably had to by not capitalising on Hull being fully at it in the first half", said the former England midfielder. "We said at half-time that because we hadn't taken our chances we had to be solid at the back, try to score another one, but we need to be more clinical". We got a little bit sloppy when we thought we were playing well and we didn't really capitalise on chances, which imparts a bit of pressure. You could sense it.
