  • However later on sees Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in charge for his first league game...

    So here comes one of the most beguiling and entirely unpredictable stories of a Premier League season which is not exactly short of them. We are about to discover whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the epitome of equanimity and an uncombative nature, can form a successful partnership with Vincent Tan, the serial interferer from Malaysia who regularly telephoned the new Cardiff City manager’s predecessor with requests that his players score more goals from distance and make better use of throw-ins.

  • 15 minutes until kick off at Hull, still time for a last minute bite to eat... 


    1/11/2014 12:31:59 PM
  • The players are in the tunnel. Not long to go now. A win here will take Chelsea top...
    1/11/2014 12:41:55 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: And we're off!
    1/11/2014 12:46:50 PM
  • The Independent's Martin Hardy in Hull...

    1/11/2014 12:49:23 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Quiet first five minutes so far. Only 85 more to endure with Michael Owen's commentary.
    1/11/2014 12:52:35 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Chelsea are having more of the possession but with no real end product. Meanwhile Elmohamady has been in the action, testing Cech with a long ranger and twice skinning Ashley Cole running down the right flank.  
    1/11/2014 12:58:28 PM

  • Ashley Cole of Chelsea and Ahmed Elmohamady of Hull City battle for the ball 


    1/11/2014 1:03:54 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Just in case you've nodded off, don't worry you haven't missed much. There has been some crisp passing from Chelsea but it hasn't got them anywhere. Not a thriller so far.
    1/11/2014 1:06:08 PM

  • Jose Mourinho's Dame Edna impression is steadily improving


    1/11/2014 1:10:34 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Ooof let off for John Terry and Chelsea. The defender plays a hideous back pass straight to Sagbo but he fires wide from a tight angle.
    1/11/2014 1:13:25 PM

  • Gary Cahill and Yannick Sagbo battle for the ball 


    1/11/2014 1:17:36 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: What a save from McGregor! Hazard finds Oscar by the penalty spot with a little cut back and the Brazilian lashes the ball goalwards only to see the Scottish keeper dive and somehow turn it over the bar. Looked difficult to miss from that distance.
    1/11/2014 1:21:12 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Just under five minutes of the first half remain and it's fair to say this is no classic so far.
    1/11/2014 1:28:58 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Free kick to Chelsea and Luiz blasts it towards goal, McGregor acrobatically tipping it over the bar. Hull clear the corner.
    1/11/2014 1:32:07 PM
  • HALF TIME - Things can only get better...
    1/11/2014 1:34:04 PM

    1/11/2014 1:37:44 PM


  • 1/11/2014 1:43:23 PM

  • Referee Mark Clattenburg (L) looks on as David Luiz of Chelsea (R) sits on the ground after a foul by Jake Livermore 


    1/11/2014 1:45:05 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Second half about to kick off. Let's hope for an improvement...
    1/11/2014 1:47:56 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Chelsea have started the better of the two sides in the second half, winning a couple of corners. This game still lacking a goal.
    1/11/2014 1:54:12 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 0: Juan Mata warming up for Chelsea, could he be the man to break the deadlock? 
    1/11/2014 1:58:57 PM
  • GOAL! Hull 0 Chelsea 1 - Eden Hazard
    What a goal! Lovely link up play from Luiz, to Cole to Hazard who skipped past a defender, dummied a shot and took it past another before slotting the ball home from outside the area. Great stuff. 
    1/11/2014 1:59:33 PM

  • Eden Hazard celebrates scoring 



    1/11/2014 2:06:45 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 1: Yellow for Gary Cahill after he is adjudged to have handballed  the ball out of the path of Sagbo. Perhaps a bit harsh, that looked more like shoulder.
    1/11/2014 2:09:14 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 1: Yellow for Livermore now for a tackle on Torres which removes the Spaniard's boot. First time we've seen the striker for a bit. Perhaps time for Eto'o.
    1/11/2014 2:13:21 PM

  • Hazard celebrates his goal 

    1/11/2014 2:16:28 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 1: Under 10 minutes remaining in Hull. Chelsea seem happy with what they've got. Can Hull grab an equaliser?
    1/11/2014 2:25:36 PM
  • GOAL! Hull 0 Chelsea 2 - Fernando Torres
    Well, well, well, He's done almost nothing all game, but that was pretty good. He picks the ball up in the final third, races past Alex Bruce and then slots it into the left hand side of the goal. That's the game.
    1/11/2014 2:28:55 PM
  • Hull 0 Chelsea 2: Eden Hazard named man of the match
    1/11/2014 2:31:54 PM
  • FULL TIME - Not a great game, but Chelsea were comfortable winners and go top of the league for the time being. 
    1/11/2014 2:35:57 PM
  • Petr Cech surpasses Peter 'The Cat' Bonetti's clean sheet record at Chelsea with his 209th
    1/11/2014 2:37:33 PM

    1/11/2014 3:08:33 PM

    1/11/2014 3:09:42 PM

  • The Independent's Michael Calvin in Cardiff:


    1/11/2014 3:14:57 PM
  • Here's that terrible Puncheon penalty miss... Ouch


    1/11/2014 3:17:06 PM
  • Hideous penalty miss aside, it's been fairly quiet so far in all today's games (prepares for sudden barrage of goals...)
    1/11/2014 3:18:28 PM

  • Jason Puncheon misses a penalty horribly
