Premier League leaders Chelsea host struggling Hull City on Sunday (4pm kick-off) hoping to extend their lead at the summit.

Antonio Conte’s side got back to winning ways last week with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over champions Leicester at the King Power Stadium and, coupled with Liverpool’s draw with Manchester United, meant that they opened up a seven-point gap to their nearest rivals.

The Blues will go in search of an 18th win of the campaign at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, and Belgian international Eden Hazard will go in search of his tenth goal of the season against the Tigers.

However, there’s no doubt that Hull have improved since Marco Silva was appointed manager at the start of January.

The Portuguese replaced the sacked Mike Phelan on January 5, and led his side to victory over Swansea in the FA Cup, and then beat Bournemouth 3-1 in his first Premier League game in charge last weekend.

The boss will once again be hoping that in-form midfielder Robert Snodgrass, who has netted seven goals and assisted three others this term, can inspire his side to a shock win in West London.

So, with these two key players set to go head-to-head on Sunday, here is how Hazard and Snodgrass match up in the Premier League this season…
