Hull Humbled

By Gary Watton

The champions of England made very light work of overcoming Hull, thereby earning themselves a considerably trickier sixth round assignment at Leicester City. Willian helped himself to a well-taken brace, with fine shots from each foot. This has taken his goals tally to a healthy double figures. Meanwhile Pedro recorded his fifth goal of the season, courtesy of an excellent assist from Cesc Fabregas. Best of all, new recruit Olivier Giroud slotted home his first goal for his new employer from close range. Finally Willy Caballero cemented his reputation as an excellent penalty saver, by defying a second half spot kick. I'm not sure however that the visiting Barcelona will capitulate so easily this forthcoming Tuesday.
