The FA Cup is Chelsea’s only remaining chance to save the season and Everton manager Roberto Martinez doesn’t believe that Chelsea needed any extra motivation ahead of Saturday’s quarter-final at Goodison Park: “It depends what way you want to look at it. If you are pessimistic, you’ll say that Chelsea will now be focused on the FA Cup. If you are optimistic, you’ll say that they won’t now have that feel-good factor after Wednesday’s result. The reality is that Chelsea are an outstanding team and we know what they have achieved since Guus Hiddink arrived, they are unbeaten in domestic competition.”

He said about Hiddink: “Guus has experience, not just in the British game but other leagues, has brought a different approach but in general it is the same group of players who found it difficult at the beginning of the season that are now consistently producing good performances. Guus’ experience on how to handle group dynamics and a dressing room in need has been very impressive.”
