After losing to Everton in the FA Cup, Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: “Everyone knows where Chelsea were. The first task was to get out of the relegation zone and we did that fast, we went from 16th to 10th. Then there were two cups at stake. it is important now that we have the pride to play when there is nothing much at stake.”
“There is a lot of emotions still going on after the game, but when I tried to calm down and analyse, the team did rather well for 70 minutes and then we conceded. The energy was out and we had a few injuries. I cannot criticise our attitude but the sharpness was left around the box.
About Lukaku:”We knew already Romelu Lukaku was making his goals, he is a good guy, a good player.
Then, he added: “I didn’t see the Diego Costa incident. If I had have seen it I would give proper comment so it is difficult to give a comment on that. It was a tough game between all the players involved, they were going after him a little bit. The referee don’t have to protect but must know when they are going after them.”
