Hiddink takes over at the Bridge

Former Socceroos coach Guus Hiddink will take over the reigns at Chelsea following the dismissal of Luiz Felipe Scolari early in the week.

After Chelsea's goalless draw against Hull City, the Stamford Bridge outfit slipped to fourth position on the league ladder and I think that caused the hierarchy at Chelsea to panic.

With the unconvincing displays from Chelsea especially at home I think there was a real fear that Chelsea could end up fighting for a Uefa Cup place instead of a Champions League place and Hiddink's job I think will be to make sure the team is in the Champions League next season.

Chelsea needs to find a way to score goals because sometimes they have had the upper hand but have failed to convert that into goals especially at home.

The team nearly lost to Stoke City at home and against Middlesborough it was so hard for the team to get the two goals they scored despite dominating the match.

I think Hiddink knows he has the players to turn things around but the matches are running out and I will be very surprised if he can chase for the title in the last rounds because I think at this point in time Manchester United are in the box seat and should be able to defend their title.

Another interesting thing is whether Aston Villa can maintain a top four place. Villa are playing very well at the moment and if they continue like that it could mean Arsenal missing out on a champions league place and that will be very interesting.

I think that Everton are also in a good position to get fifth place because at the moment they trail Arsenal by just four points.

I hope Hiddink's arrival at Chelsea will make the last rounds of the English Premiership very interesting
