Guus Hiddink on the draw, Diego Costa's injury and John Terry's controversial goal


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says the 3-3 draw at home against Everton should be seen as a point gained rather than two points lost.

The Blues needed a 98th-minute goal from defender John Terry to take a point from Stamford Bridge with the captain appearing to be in an offside position.

And the Dutchman, who admitted that the goal should have not stood, was full of praise for the attitude and ambition of his players.

"I'm very happy with the spirit, ambition and attitude," Hiddink told reporters.

"The first half was in the balance, very tactical, but in the second half the speed went up. We conceded two goals and playing against Everton, who are a very good, modern team, you have your feelings. Going 2-0 down was a tremendous setback.

"But I was pleased with the attitude to come back to 2-2. We got another setback at the end of the game, 2-3, which made it difficult, but in the last minute we got a goal.

"Of course I'm not happy with goals conceded but I'm very happy with the attitude and ambition of the team, and at least we equalised.

"Everton are a good team and given the fact we were down it's a point gained I think.

"[John Terry's goal?] Sometimes it goes in your favour during a season but you have to be fair. Why should I deny it? Oscar touched the ball and John was offside but he scored a beautiful goal.

"It was in the last minute but they were celebrating their third goal in the corner for one minute so we told the fourth official he had to add one minute and maybe something would happen, and it did.

"He's [Diego Costa is] in hospital and they will check with a scan. We don't know the results yet, I hope it's not too bad. It's on his shin. We hope Diego will come out of the hospital in good health. He was in a lot of pain."
