Deco praises Chelsea teammates for digging in at Hull

Deco says it was all about digging in for Chelsea in their 1-1 draw at Hull City.

The Portugal midfielder believes they showed title winning character for the point at the KC.

"When you go to this kind of place, the first games are not easier but all the teams are relaxed and want to play football, and the pitches are good. I remember when we played there last season the pitch was excellent, and yesterday when I saw the pitch I wondered what had happened," Deco told the club's website.

"The pitches are more difficult in the winter, and teams are more desperate for points because they need to save themselves. We need to be prepared, because any game away will be more difficult from now."
