Guus Hiddink Post Match Presser : Arsenal 0-1 Chelsea
Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink was effervescent in his praise for the Blues squad who produced a memorable display against a formidable Arsenal side who spurned the chance to go top of the table. The match ended only in a paltry 1-0 win for Chelsea but had the potential to be a rout had Chelsea taken their chances better in the opening as well as closing stages of the game.
“I think when you go here and you wait for them they are so skilful that you are beaten so you have to take the initiative.
“Hopefully [Costa] is not too calm. He’s focusing on his first job, what he’s good at. I don’t waste any energy you don’t need, you put it where you need.
“We were unbeaten seven games in a row but it was not satisfying because it was draws. This is a step to go on that path.
“If we stay unbeaten but it’s a big gap. You see the team knows it’s a big gap but I want to see the ambition of the team always there, whether you can go in fourth place yes or no, the ambition must be there.”
Chelsea moved up a position to 13th in the Premier League table and have a long way to go if they want to qualify for the Champion’s League but will be bolstered in that regard by the fact that they have Costa and Fabregas in sublime form with almost a guaranteed goal from either in their subsequent matches. Another boost was the return of Eden Hazard who impressed in the cameo he received.
