Chelsea have had one of their poorer weeks; on March 11 they went out of the Champions League and, four days later, they dropped two valuable points in the Barclays Premier League when they were held to a 1-1 draw with Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Despite that result the Blues remain six points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand over their rivals, including second-placed Manchester City.

Chelsea remain unbeaten in seven league games. Their last defeat was at Tottenham on New Year's Day. But they have drawn three and had they won those they would now be 12 points clear.

In 33 league games between these teams Chelsea have won 22, drawn seven and lost just four to Hull, whose last victory over the Blues was at home back in October 1988, in the old Second Division.

The last three games home and away have ended in 2-0 wins to Chelsea while in the Premier League they are unbeaten in seven clashes with the Blues winning five and drawing two.
