Chelsea are valued as strong 8/13 favourites to beat Hull at the KC Staidum as both teams look to bring their good form from 2013 into 2014.

Hull and Chelsea are living up to their season expectations so far this campaign and both sides will be eager to continue their good from heading into the second half of the year.

Hosts Hull have surprised many people with their performances this season and some high profile victories has seen The Tigers climb up to 10th in the table.

Going into the early kick-off, Steve Bruce will be hoping that most of his team have shaken off a flu bug that has left nine players struggling for fitness over the past week.

Aside from the viral problems, defender Paul McShane is the most notable absentee as he looks to spend the next month out with an ankle injury that will see him join Sone Aluko and Robbie Brady in the stands.

Bruce will also be keen to see how some of his top strikers perform over the next game or two as they fight to retain their place in the squad with the arrival of Nikita Jelacvic seeming imminent from Everton.

Mourinho’s return to Chelsea is going just how he would’ve liked with The Blues firmly in the title hunt as they sit two points behind leaders Arsenal in third going into 2014.

Chelsea are still without several key players with both Frank Lampard and Branislav Ivanovic out until the end of the month forcing Mourinho to tinker with his first team outlook somewhat.

One player who won’t be featuring anytime soon will be Kevin De Bruyne with the Belgian playmaker’s future at the club becoming increasingly uncertain with a possible transfer on the horizon within the next few days.

Chelsea do have a strong record against Hull in the past 20 years having remained unbeaten in the last nine encounters between the two sides which includes 7 wins against The Tigers and 2 draws.

Both teams will be keen to keep their momentum going for as long as possible and whilst Hull’s superb home form will give them some confidence, Chelsea will be out to make sure that they get the job done and continue putting pressure on their rivals at the top of the table.
