Antonee Robinson and Wigan Athletic earned an emphatic victory in EFL Championship play on Tuesday, downing Hull City 8-0 at the DW Stadium.
Robinson started and played 56 minutes for the Latics, impressing in a busy first-half for the hosts. The left back won seven of 13 duels defensively, while also successfully completing four dribbles and one tackle. With the game already won after seven first-half goals, Paul Cook decided to rest one of his star players for this weekend’s clash with Charlton Athletic. The 22-year-old Robinson has made 36 appearances this season, excelling in his first full season with the club after arriving from Everton.
Christian Pulisic continued his strong run of form for Chelsea in a 1-0 midweek win over Norwich City. Pulisic registered his third league assist of the season, setting up Olivier Giroud for the lone goal at Stamford Bridge. The in-form 21-year-old also completed 87% of his passes while having two shots saved by Canaries goalkeeper Tim Krul. The Blues took a major step to clinching a top-four spot with two matches remaining.
