Another weekend, another 3 points for Chelsea and Antonio Conte…
On a cold Sunday evening in SW6, Chelsea, once again, came out on top against Hull City.
All eyes were on the Blues, as they so often are, with Diego Costa brought back into the team, and Antonio Conte was certainly under pressure to ensure that his decision was vilified – and it most definitely was.
Diego Costa was on fire against the Tigers, with the Spaniard looking to prove that he is committed to the cause at Stamford Bridge – with a fine first-half goal enough to see the Blues into half-time with a one goal lead.
A nervy 40 minutes followed after the break, with Hull coming back into the game – but it was left down to Chelsea captain Gary Cahill to ensure that the Blues left with the points.
The Chelsea fans, expectedly, are absolutely delighted with the result – and many have taken to Twitter to revel in yet another 3 points earned…

Chelsea have now conceded 6 goals in 16 league games since switching to 3-4-3. One every four hours.

GET IN! @GaryJCahill such a great player to have; good defender and always a threat on set pieces. Game over!

It's becoming an Antonio Conte love-in at SB this season. It hasn't taken him long, but he's built up such a rapport with #CFC fans already.

We didn't play very well in second half granted but as soon as Cesc came on it started coming together. What a magician he is. #CFC.

No doubts there – the Chelsea fans on Twitter are absolutely delighted!
The question is, can we repeat that performance against Arsenal and Liverpool? We’re hoping so!
