Chelsea 0-0 Hull City Highlights
Chelsea’s title hopes took a further dent as they dropped yet more home points, drawing 0-0 with Hull City.
Both sides had chances to win the game with Chelsea captain John Terry missing an open goal from close range early on.
Chelsea’s Michael Ballack hit the outside of the post with a fine free-kick while Hull’s Kevin Kilbane did likewise with a header.
Hull had the better of the second half chances with Craig Fagan and Dean Marney going close for the visitors.
Chelsea now slip to fourth in the Premier League table with Aston Villa replacing them in third, with the Blues four points behind leaders Manchester United having played two games more.
The Blues handed a debut to new loan signing Ricardo Quaresma but it was one of their stalwarts, Terry, who had the first chance of the game.
Terry blazed over from three yards out after Frank Lampard’s inswinging free-kick had been headed into his path.
