Here are five football tips Jack Green thinks you should consider for Hull v Chelsea on Saturday.

Hull (+2)

Hull have lost back-to-back games 1-0 in the Championship, but should have a good go at a Chelsea side that looked devoid of confidence in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

The Blues have lost three of their last seven away games and have only won by more than one goal once in their last eight.

0-0 at half-time

Chelsea haven’t conceded a first-half goal in their last five matches, while Hull have failed to find the net before the break in three of their last four games.

Given the Blues’ own scoring struggles, it would be no surprise if Saturday’s game starts slowly, particularly with Tammy Abraham likely out injured.

Tom Eaves to score a header

Eaves netted a hat-trick against Rotherham to send Hull through to this stage, two of which were scored with his head.

The 6ft 3in striker has now scored seven goals this season and bagged 40 across his previous two campaigns with Gillingham.

Tom Eaves to be carded

Eaves will be keen to bully Chelsea’s likely central defensive partnership of Fikayo Tomori and Kurt Zouma.

The Hull target man ranks joint-fourth for fouls per game in the Championship and has been booked five times this season, including in the previous round against Rotherham.

Over 10.5 corners

Chelsea have averaged 6.67 corners per game this season, the second-most in the Premier League. They’ve racked up at least 10 in three consecutive matches, including 17 against Arsenal in midweek.

Hull should also help reach this total given they have averaged seven per game this term, the joint-second most in the Championship.
