Chelsea still have a possibility of completing in the Premier League main four and securing Champions League football toward the end of the season, break director Guus Hiddink has voiced.
Chelsea chastise Crystal Palace 3-0 on Sunday to enlist their 6th group win of the season and their first since Hiddink took the reins from Jose Mourinho a month ago.
The win moved Chelsea up to fourteenth spot in the table and 13 focuses behind fourth-put Tottenham Hotspur, and Hiddink declined to discount his side’s odds of completing in the main four in spite of the fact that he let it out would be “troublesome”.
“Everybody knows there’s a considerable measure of value however now and again a group which has quite recently ended up champions tends to wind up careless,” the Dutchman told the BBC.
“When I began, we said scientifically when we could get to a Champions League position it would be flawless.
“It’s troublesome in light of the fact that this alliance has turned out to be so solid. Everybody can win from everybody, which means it’s extremely hard to arrive.
“Yet, the length of we play as (we did against Palace), we can be upbeat and after that outcomes will come. It’s conceivable still, yet far to go.”
