Olivier Giroud and Willian helped Chelsea thrash Hull City to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals after a 4-0 victory on Friday night.

Willian was fantastic throughout against the Championship strugglers and scored the opener with a curling effort from outside the box in the second minute before Pedro doubled the advantage 25 minutes later.

Willian then netted his second from 25 yards after playing a one-two with Giroud just after the half hour mark.

The France striker then scored his first goal since his move from Arsenal – a smart finish from close range three minutes before the half time.

Hull City improved slightly after the break and David Meyler had a penalty saved by Willy Caballero.

Willian almost wrapped up a first career hat-trick late on, but he hit the post from 20 yards.

Elsewhere, Jamie Vardy scored the winner in the 66th minute as Leicester City beat Sheff United 1-0.
