It’s half-time in the Chelsea – Hull game and the Blues are winning.
So everyone on Chelsea Twitter is happy, right?
The fact we’re only winning 1-0 despite having had a host of chances is very frustrating. Normally a team gets away with it though, but given this has been our problem week after week recently, it’s getting a lot of attention from fans and from journalists in the stadium.
Of course if we come out in the second period and blow them off the park it will all be forgotten. But as it stands, we’re sleepwalking into conceding a sucker punch equaliser and seeing ourselves sent back to square one – or even worse, an FA Cup replay.
Let’s not forget we’re away from home here. As long as they are just one goal down, they will believe, and the atmosphere could get hectic if they’re pushing for a goal late on.

Same old, same old for Chelsea. Barkley and Mount have had chances to kill the game off but have failed to take them. #HULCHE

Mount’s gotta square that. tap-in for Michy if he does, and the game’s basically put to bed. bit selfish.

Chelsea absolutely dominating…
You know the story…

Chelsea wasting too many chances. For a team so vulnerable to the set-piece/breakaway goal, they really need to capitalise on the opportunities they’re creating.

Hull are bang average at the moment & Chelsea are creating chance after chance – still 1-0
I’ll take that but we should be further ahead!

Chelsea have got away with a certain sloppiness though tonight that might not have been so favourable in the Premier League. Some poor final balls just then after a Barkley mistake rescueing the situation. Poor first touches from two…
