Antonio Conte admitted that he was delighted by Willian’s performance for Chelsea FC as the Blues thrashed Hull City 4-0 to book their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup.

The Blues safely secured their progress in the cup competition with an impressive display at Stamford Bridge as they bid to once again reach the final under Conte.

Willian netted twice for the home side and Olivier Giroud and Pedro Rodriguez also found the net in a dominant victory for the west London side.

The Brazilian attacker has been in good form for the Blues so far this season and Conte was understandably delighted by Willian’s performance against Hull on Friday night.

Speaking at his post-match news conference at Stamford Bridge, Conte said: “Willian’s performance was impressive.

“I hope to see always this type of performance, because when Willy plays in this way it’s a great joy for me, the team and the fans. He played very well and I’m very happy.”

The victory was a timely one for Chelsea FC, who now prepare for their crunch Champions League showdown against FC Barcelona on Tuesday night.

The Blues are aiming to at least finish in the top four of the Premier League this season after having won the title under Conte in his first campaign in charge last term.

Chelsea FC reached the FA Cup final under Conte last season but they were beaten by Arsenal in the final back in May.
