Hull City attacker Markus Henriksen believes his side were unfortunate not to get a result against Chelsea.

Commenting on Twitter after his team's 2-0 home defeat, the midfielder said that he was at least glad on a personal level to make his first home start in a Premier League game.

Henriksen played 71 minutes of Hull's loss, but struggled, making only 22 touches before being taken off for striker Abel Hernandez.

Chelsea's goals were scored by Diego Costa and Willian, with both strikes coming shortly before Henriksen was taken off.

The Norwegian international was signed late in the transfer window, and had made just one previous substitute appearance in the league for Hull.

He started in the EFL Cup in midweek, even scoring in the win over Stoke City, but has plenty of adjusting to do if he is to make a difference on a regular basis for the Tigers.

Hull got a glimpse of what he is capable of in the cup win, and will hope to see more of it after the international break.
