The return to the starting lineup for Willian from injury was a difference maker as he showed his immediate influence and bragged a brace.

Meyler had a chance to pull a goal back for the visitors with a penalty after half-time but the Republic of Ireland worldwide had his penalty saved by Chelsea keeper, Willy Caballero. "But in the next two weeks we have to play massive games and we must be strong - Barcelona, United and City".

The Catalan giants are considered the favourites to dump Chelsea, whose form has been up-and-down in 2018, out of Europe's premier tournament, but Giroud believes "everything is going in the right way" for the reigning Premier League champions.

The Blues got off to a flying start with Willian scoring inside two minutes before Pedro added a second before the half hour mark.

"We must take the time to make the best decision about who will start the game".

Unfortunately for the away side, Chelsea proved too good for the second time on the night just inside the 27th minute, through an excellent pass over the top from Fàbregas.

Giroud nearly got his first goal for his new club inside the 15th minute with a snapshot inside the box.

And the Brazilian saluted the overall performance of Chelsea, saying they made the game "easy".

Meyler did miss the penalty - it was a good height for the keeper according to Glenn Hoddle on commentary for BT Sport.

Following today's clash between Chelsea and Hull City, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Antonio Conte has hinted that he is planning to start Alvaro Morata for Chelsea FC's crunch Champions League showdown against FC Barcelona at Stamford Bridge next week. And things got even worse for Hull when Meyler missed a penalty early in the second half, after Fabregas brought down Harry Wilson inside the box.

The Chelsea goalkeeper then denied Nouha Dicko with another smart intervention, and one that roused the Blues from their second-half slumber.

Chelsea got off to the ideal start as they all but tore up any plans Nigel Adkins might have had for his side, Willian cutting inside to bend a standout finish into the far corner beyond a stranded David Marshall after just two minutes.

Determined to complete his hat-trick, first Willian was just unable to work space to drill home - then saw another teasing effort rebound off the upright.
