Chelsea climbed to eighth, five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United and eight adrift of Manchester City in fourth, and Hiddink says both clubs are within reach.

“Now with the ambition of Chelsea we must set a new target and see what we can do in the direction of Europe,” Hiddink said. “We have now won a few games in a row. We have to keep on winning.

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

Robert Kenedy opened the scoring in the first minute before Diego Costa made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time. Nathan Redmond pulled one back for the home side on 68 minutes, but Hiddink thinks the game should have been killed off way before then.

“We had a splendid start from Kenedy, a beautiful goal. After that we had options for a second,” he added. “We should’ve killed it off already. I’m satisfied about the result, but I like to always be a bit more critical. We were a bit sloppy in finishing off.”
