Everyone expected Chelsea to have an easy ride against Hull City, but it wasn’t to be. The Tigers came out to stun Chelsea and even forced Thibaut Courtois to make a couple of good saves. However, Chelsea won the game 2-0.
Speaking after the game, Courtois revealed that the change in manager made the game more difficult.
“We knew it would be hard, they’ve changed their manager and it’s harder for other teams to beat them as well,” said the Belgian. “Manchester United found it tough against them, they won against Bournemouth and they came with a plan so it wasn’t easy. I don’t think we played our best game but we are pleased to get the three points.
“We wanted to win more games after the Tottenham result, and before we play Liverpool and Arsenal. Now we have a big gap, hopefully we can win against them and put ourselves further away.”
