Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a scrappy victory over 10-man Hull which was marred by diving controversy.


13 December 2014: Eden Hazard scored a header early on, but the hosts only made sure of victory after Tom Huddlestone’s 60th-minute red card for a challenge on Filipe Luis.It was Diego Costa who eased Chelsea nerves, sweeping home from close range.But Chelsea were far from perfect, with Willian and Costa booked for diving and Gary Cahill lucky not to be sent off.

The England defender had already been shown a yellow card for a late challenge in the first half – a tackle on Sone Aluko that Hull manager Steve Bruce thought was deserving of a straight red – and after the break the centre-back went to ground too easily inside the Hull box.Hull’s incensed players surrounded referee Chris Foy, arguing Cahill should have been shown a second yellow for diving, but the Chelsea player escaped punishment and less than 10 minutes later a frustrated Hull were reduced to 10 men.
