Wilian & Giroud give Conte "good doubts" after starring in cup win | Match Report.

Willian was the game's standout player, with plenty of flicks and tricks as well as his two goals


Olivier Giroud and Willian helped Chelsea thrash Hull City to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals - and boss Antonio Conte says they have given him "good doubts" about his team to face Barcelona on Tuesday.

Willian was fantastic throughout against the Championship strugglers and scored the opener with a curling effort from outside the box.

Pedro scored the second when he slipped the ball under David Marshall after latching onto Cesc Fabregas' excellent halfway line pass.




Willian then scored his second from 25 yards after playing a one-two with Giroud.

The France striker then scored his first goal since his move from Arsenal - a smart finish from close range following debutant Emerson Palmieri's left-wing cross.

Hull improved slightly after the break and David Meyler had a penalty saved by Willy Caballero.

Willian almost wrapped up a first career hat-trick late on, but he hit the post from 20 yards.

Chelsea will discover their next FA Cup opponents on Saturday at 20:00 GMT.

After that comes Tuesday's Champions League last-16 first leg at home to Barcelona.

Conte told BBC Sport: "It was a positive night, Olivier Giroud got his first goal and Willian had an impressive performance.

"For sure when I go home, I have many good doubts because I have to try to make the best decision for Tuesday and to have many options is good for me and good for the team."
