Guus Hiddink: Victory over Tottenham would salvage Chelsea’s season

“They love to play football and the way he is presenting himself is very controlled.

“He is very enthusiastic for the team as well. The way the team plays reflects the way the coach is working.”

Having pulled one back Bournemouth, Elphick admitted he was delighted to see strike duo Callum Wilson and Benik Afobe returning to full fitness.

“It’s great to see almost everybody fit,” said the Bournemouth skipper. “They are such big players for us and they are always going to be missed.

“They would lift any team and to see them making their strides towards recovery is a big positive.”
