Conte has 'many doubts' about selection for Barcelona clash

Defeat to Chelsea could be a turning point for Barcelona warns Pique

Giroud finally got his first goal for his new club and Chelsea's fourth on the night just before half time.

The Frenchman joined Chelsea for £18 million from Arsenal in January and failed to score in his first couple of appearances against Watford and West Brom in the Premier league.

Just four days before Antonio Conte must pick his Chelsea team to face Barcelona at Stamford Bridge, Willian gave the Blues boss a massive selection headache.

Hull looked much better in the second half and carved out some half decent chances to get some goals, but the tie was well over at half time as Chelsea sat back and waited for the full time whistle.

Across the last two seasons, the Brazilian has frustrated Chelsea fans with his inconsistency - delivering stellar performances one week, only to disappear into the background the next.

- The Blues have progressed from 10 of their last 11 fifth round FA Cup ties, only losing against Manchester City in 2014.

Cesc Fabregas sent Pedro away to make it 2-0 after 27 minutes and Willian then used his right foot to devastating effect to skim a low shot past keeper David Marshall.French global Giroud clipped in a neat finish from Emerson's cut back to make the second half academic. Giroud then cut a relieved figure when he tucked home debutant Emerson Palmieris low cross to round off a first 45 minutes to forget for the visitors.

"Conte has already been through that experience and prefers to work with the squad on a daily basis", his representative Federico Pastorello told Rai Sport.

Meyler turned around and ruffled Willian's hair - with both men all smiles - but the Hull star's tame spot-kick was then saved by Willy Caballero.

Willian whipped home the opener from 20 yards in just the second minute.

- Chelsea have now won seven consecutive matches against Hull City in all competitions, scoring 17 goals and keeping six clean sheets.

However, he should have done better for Giroud's cute finish getting beaten at his near post with the ball going through his legs.

The Blues Italian coach has of course also been at odds with the Stamford Bridge club's board over transfer policy, leading to speculation that he could be sacked and replaced with former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique.

"It won't be easy because we know very well this player".

Adkins must have used every ounce of his infectious positivity and optimism during the half-time break as Hull enjoyed a bright start to the second-half.
