Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has admitted admiration for Hull City's players after their 3-0 win on Wednesday night.

He said: "I like this team. It is very difficult to win against this team because they have high (tall) players, they jump very well and they fight. They have quality.

"To concede after three minutes it is very difficult (for them) to think about the game because we have very experienced players.

"I like this team, I like some players. They want to show to the people that Hull City is a big team."
