Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink addressed he media after the thrilling 3-3 draw against the Toffees in the Premier League:

‘I’m very happy with the spirit, ambition and attitude,’ said Hiddink. ‘The first half was in the balance, very tactical, but in the second half the speed went up. We conceded two goals and playing against Everton, who are a very good, modern team, you have your feelings. Going 2-0 down was a tremendous setback. 

‘But I was pleased with the attitude to come back to 2-2. We got another setback at the end of the game, 2-3, which made it difficult, but in the last minute we got a goal.

‘Of course I’m not happy with goals conceded but I’m very happy with the attitude and ambition of the team, and at least we equalised.

‘Everton are a good team and given the fact we were down it’s a point gained I think.’

The ex-Dutch national manager had this to say on Diego Costa’s injury

‘He’s in hospital and they will check with a scan. We don’t know the results yet, I hope it’s not too bad. It’s on his shin. We hope Diego will come out of the hospital in good health. He was in a lot of pain.’

‘Sometimes it goes in your favour during a season but you have to be fair. Why should I deny it? Oscar touched the ball and John was offside but he scored a beautiful goal.’

‘It was in the last minute but they were celebrating their third goal in the corner for one minute so we told the fourth official he had to add one minute and maybe something would happen, and it did.’

‘It’s frustrating because we want to dominate and control games but Everton are one of the smartest teams in the Premier League with the way they play, it’s very difficult. Of course it’s disappointing to go 2-0 down but again I want to emphasise the reaction of the team and that’s good for us to go on for the rest of the season.’
