Chelsea defender Filipe Luis is thrilled with three points against Hull
Filipe Luis hailed Chelsea’s narrow 2-0 win against Hull City to keep the Blues “on top” of the Premier League.
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard headed the west London side into a seventh-minute lead as the Blues looked to make amends for their defeat at St James’s Park last weekend.
Jose Mourinho’s side were given a helping hand when Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone was sent off in the 60th minute for a foul on left-back Luis.
Diego Costa, who hadn’t scored in four games prior to Saturday afternoon, sealed three points with his 12th Premier League strike of the season.
And Luis, who followed Costa from Atletico Madrid to the west London side in the summer, took to Twitter to revel in Chelsea’s 2-0 win.
