Chelsea vs Hull City: FA Cup TV and online live streaming

With the goals having dried up since Adkins took over, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Blues to come out on top without conceding in the FA Cup.

Hull City will be hoping to pull off an upset when they travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in Friday’s FA Cup clash.

The Tigers have knocked out Blackburn Rovers and fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest so far, taking their place in the fifth round for the second time in three years.

After getting back to winning ways in the Premier League, Chelsea turn attention to the FA Cup with the visit of Hull City.

With just three days' break between the victory over West Brom and Friday night's fifth-round tie, Antonio Conte brought off Olivier Giroud, Pedro and Andreas Christensen early on Monday night in a possible hint of his team selection.

Giroud impressed on his first start, assisting Eden Hazard's opener, and could again make the line-up for the visit of a Tigers side who sit just one point above the Championship relegation zone.

Team news
Chelsea are without David Luiz, Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko for Friday's FA Cup fifth-round fixture at home to Hull.

Defender Luiz has an ankle injury, Barkley is sidelined with a hamstring problem while fellow midfielder Bakayako has an unspecified ailment.

Antonio Conte should resist the temptation to rotate players for this game and instead pick the team he intends to use against Barcelona next week.

Chelsea have a four-day break before Barca arrive at Stamford Bridge.

With respect, any Chelsea XI should be able to beat Hull, who are 21st in the Championship, so why not use it as important preparation for Barcelona?

Sometimes resting players can backfire. I know managers have to pay attention to the physical data and clearly you shouldn’t play someone if he is carrying a knock, but sometimes players need to play.

Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso face late fitness tests before manager Antonio Conte selects his starting XI.

Team from: Courtois, Caballero, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger, Christensen, Chalobah, Moses, Zappacosta, Alonso, Kante, Ampadu, Palmieri, Drinkwater, Scott, Sterling, Fabregas, Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Giroud, Morata.

Since replacing Leonid Slutsky in December, Nigel Adkins has done a creditable job of sorting out a defence that had conceded 38 goals in 20 matches prior to his appointment.

They have conceded just 11 times in 12 fixtures since he took over, but worryingly, they have also only scored 11 times in that run themselves.

It is hard to see Hull containing Chelsea considering their defensive absentees, and they are likely to suffer more frustration in front of goal against a defence that has kept six clean sheet in eight home games.
