Chelsea survived a late scare from the championship side, Hull City to qualify for the FA Cup fifth round after a tense encounter.

The Blues needed only six minutes of play to open the scoring through Belgian, Michy Batsuayi who was deployed in an attack in place of the rested Tammy Abraham.

The premiership side then took control of the math before going on to add a second in the second half through Fikayo Tomori after a well-orchestrated team move.
