It's not exactly been a scintillating performance from the Blues, but we're 1-0 up anyway thanks to a headed -- that's not a typo -- goal from Eden Hazard. Since the opener, Chelsea have been impressively sloppy, but Hull haven't really managed to do anything about said sloppiness. Petr Cech has been largely untroubled, although the defence did get itself in some trouble once or twice, most notably when Gary Cahill wiped out Sone Aluko towards the end of the half.
So. The lead is nice, but the players could stand to go up a few gears. Avoiding a 'we didn't kill off the game and were made to pay' post-match presser would be nice.
