Chelsea came against Steve Bruce’s Hull and negotiated a tricky clash with all 3 points.
Hull employed a 3-5-2 formation which has been a regular feature of their season. Chelsea went in with a 4-2-3-1

You will be forgiven to think that Hull employed a press successfully in the first half and ran out of gas in the second. It was rather the extra man in the midfield that made building from the back difficult for Chelsea.
