Hiddink targets European berth

Premiership

The reigning Premier League champions edged struggling Norwich City 2-1 on Tuesday night to extend their unbeaten run under interim manager Hiddink to 11 games, with the London club now sitting eighth in the Premier League standings.

After a disastrous start to the campaign, Chelsea are now just five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United, who occupy the last Europa League berth in the Premier League, and coach Hiddink feels his side can now challenge for continental qualification with just ten League games to go this season.

"Now with the ambition of Chelsea we must set a new target and see what we can do in the direction of Europe," the Chelsea coach told Sky Sports.

"We have now won a few games in a row and we have to keep on winning.

"If everyone is on board and there are no big injuries, we would like to go as high as possible towards the European spots."

Chelsea’s next EPL fixture is a clash against Stoke City on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
