Chelsea have secured passage into the fifth round of the FA Cup, but it didn’t come easy as the Tigers gave Chelsea a late scare after Kamil Grosicki scored a deflected free-kick in the 78th minute of the game.

At the end, goals from Michy Batshuayi and Fikayo Tomori were enough to get the win for Chelsea.

Batshuayi opened the scoring in the sixth minute to continue his good record in domestic cup games and it was his sixth goal in all competitions this season.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard revealed after the game that he was pleased with the Belgian’s performance and wants more from the 26-year-old.

Lampard said after the Hull City game: “I’m pleased. As a goalscorer, a striker, you want him to score goals. It helps his confidence. It can’t be that we just rely on Tammy. I want Michy firing and scoring goals like he did today, and when he trains he has to stay at that level.

“He trains as I want him to train. That’s not easy when you’re not playing as much as you want to. You have to go the extra mile to show you deserve to play. When you get those opportunities you have to show them.

“Today I can say I’m happy with Michy. It’s not just his goal – which was slightly fortunate and I like that – I just want him to keep delivering in training and when the opportunities come take them. Everyone judges strikers on goals and Michy has that in him. I want to see it more.”
