US U-20 Kyle Scott Makes Chelsea Debut In FA Cup


The 31-year-old - who arrived from Arsenal in January - was among the scorers in a 4-0 win over Championship opponents Hull in the FA Cup on Friday night, as Chelsea pulled off back-to-back results after a hard period.

Pedro was the man to increase their advantage with a tidy finish, before Willian doubled his tally soon after and Giroud got off the mark for the club following his January arrival from Arsenal to open up a four-goal lead by half-time.

The player himself is likely to be desperate to start when the Blues host FC Barcelona next week. "But we played a good game at the end of a busy period".

"To be honest, I was waiting for it", Giroud told BT Sport after the game.

And the Brazilian's fine performance was rewarded after half an hour as he scored his second, beating the goalkeeper with a low curling shot from 25 yards.

Of course, from that kind of advantage, and in this kind of game when the champions were at home, it was always going to amount to an effective training session; an evening when Chelsea's attackers could really express themselves.

"I had a couple of chances in previous games, so yeah, it was very important to get the first goal and now I am a little relieved, to be honest". But for the Italian manager, it was the clean sheet which was far more important than the goals feat.




"They were staring down the barrel at 4-0 - and it could have gone the other way".

"For sure, to play against Barcelona is a great challenge for us", he added.

It was Stewart who lost the ball to Giroud in the build-up to Chelsea's first goal, after just two minutes, as the Championship side took some time to settle.

And a third goal soon followed - Willian finding the bottom-right corner via the post from just outside the area after good work by Giroud again. Rest of the video is quite standard with a few clips of our squad arriving at the stadium, warm up sessions and an interaction between Antonio Conte and Nigel Adkins before the match.

Damaging defeats to Bournemouth and Watford had left Conte's job in serious doubt ahead of this week, but convincing victories over West Brom and Hull City have improved the atmosphere and Conte urged his players to build on their positive momentum against Barcelona.

"In the second half we tried to manage the game".

Despite the scoreline, Hull started the second half well and even earned a spot kick.
