Costa to Conte's rescue as Chelsea beats Hull 2-0

Conte switched to three at the back at the KCOM Stadium and it paid dividends as goals from Willian and Diego Costa sealed a much-needed victory. I'm not seeing a Chelsea side that has a plan.

"I just have to work every day, every week to prepare the team, prepare for the game", he said.

That newfound confidence at the back could breathe new life into Chelsea's season and the Blues will be further boosted by the expected returns of John Terry and Kurt Zouma after the global break. "We are working very hard on these aspects to improve them".

Mikel is still absence with a small muscular problem and Kurt Zouma continues to recover from a knee ligament injury.

His attacking partnership with Willian and Eden Hazard proved unstoppable for slumping Hull as the former opened the scoring before Costa wrapped up all three points.

THE MANAGERAntonio Conte " Never it is good when you lose two games.

"It's important not to forget the past, because the past is very clear".

Syrian government attacks 2 hospitals, bread line in Aleppo
At M10, the bigger of the two hospitals, the bombardment completely destroyed the facility's generator. "It is very dire". One of the damaged hospitals was near the bakery, and the other was in another part of Aleppo , the Sakhour district.

"It's fantastic for him and for us that he's scored six goals", Conte declared. The Italian manager, however, admits that they are working on fixing the problems which have been evident since last season, which saw them finish in tenth place. We finished in 10th last season. "We must follow this with work, work, work!"

Mike Phelan will be keen to set things right, but the fixture list, where they face United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea in a space of over a month, has not helped their cause.

Outplayed for half the match by struggling Swansea and trailing to an early goal by Leroy Fer, Liverpool were a different proposition after the break and took the points thanks to a late James Milner penalty.

Steven Gerrard admits the Premier League is shaping up for one of its greatest-ever seasons after assessing the chances of a number of title hopefuls.

The man who scored the opening goal, Willian, also talked about the concentration needed, especially in the final third, to break the deadlock.

The jury is still firmly out on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who is yet to implement his style of play at Stamford Bridge, according to Tim Sherwood.

Chelsea have used a league-low 17 players this season, with Hull next lowest on 18.
