Cesc Fabregas brought down on-loan Liverpool winger Harry Wilson inside the penalty box, gifting the Championship side an opportunity to pull a goal back.

Ahead of Chelsea's crunch Champions League clash with Barcelona on Tuesday, however, Willian has insisted that his side must keep working hard.

"The next thing I know he is chucking me in the back of the car saying, 'Your sister is being born, we have got to go'".

Mason's announcement comes the week leading up to the two clubs meeting again for the first time since the incident. "We're very pleased with these two last games so let's carry on". Antonio Conte's men dominated the game throughout and reaped fruits for their impressive display. They should be looking to dispatch Hull comfortably. We gifted them some positions, but we knew it was going to be a tough ask. Nigel Adkins has struggled since taking over, winning on only four occasions. It was very important for me to score this first goal.

"Bakayoko. I don't think will be available for the Barcelona game, but Alonso is ready to play", Conte confirmed in the press conference.

The 20-year-old midfielder was born in Bath, England, and has been with Chelsea since joining from Southampton at the U-10 level, but he's represented the United States at both the U-18 and U-20 levels.

Mason suffered a skull fracture after clashing heads with Cahill in an aerial challenge during a game between Chelsea and Hull City at Stamford Bridge in January 2017. "We can see the team had a good team cohesion".

MF Danny Drinkwater, 7 - Solid if unspectacular from the Englishman who probably wanted to be more involved to catch his manager's eye. Considering the attacking woes of Hull, the youngster's average of 2.1 shots and 1.07 chances created per ninety minutes show his quality. Seven goals. Very good for the confidence.

Olivier Giroud lead the line against West Bromwich Albion for an hour on Monday in Morata's absence and the club record signing was afforded a 30-minute cameo in the 3-0 victory, in which the former Real Madrid man registered an assist for the final goal.

"Good game, good performance". Back home that is a big derby. The medical team were shouted on, so then you realise that something is not right. Ross Barkley remains on the sidelines. The fixture list reads: Hull City, Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City. "Now we have three days to decide on them". Sebastian Larsson will also miss the trip due to suspension.

For Mason, it will be a return to the ground where his career effectively ended.

"I think I have to make the best decisions for the team".
