Cesar Azpilicueta wasn’t overly impressed with how Chelsea performed in their FA Cup win at Hull City on Saturday evening.

The Blues thrashed the Tigers at the KCOM stadium to book their place in the next round of football’s oldest competition.

Chelsea dominated for most of the game as goals from Michy Batshuayi and Fikayo Tomori handed them a comfortable lead.

The Championship side responded through Kamil Grosicki, whose free-kick took a big deflection off Mateo Kovacic before hitting the back of the net with 12 minutes to go but the homeside couldn’t secure a comeback as the game ended 2-1.

"With the chances we had, we cannot concede in these kind of circumstances and we have to control better," the Chelsea captain said.


"We know we have to improve our game if we want to improve as a team and go far, because tonight was a night we could have handled much better.


"It's not the first game where we didn't manage the game well, and at the end there we were on our box suffering. Sometimes we can be punished but tonight not, but we know we have to improve."


Speaking on BT Sport, Azpilicueta added: "For moments we stopped playing as a team and we started doing individual actions that is not our game and we got punished.


"And if we want to play against the best teams and to fight for trophies, we have to improve."
