Guus Hiddink: Why Eden Hazard didn't start last night's game against Watford


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says his side deserved to take all three points from last night's Premier League game against Watford.

The Blues dominated possession and create a number of goal-scoring opportunities could only manage a draw at Vicarage Road.

The draw means Chelsea keep their place in the middle part of the table ahead of this weekend's tough home game against Manchester United.

"I'm disappointed because we didn't get the deserved three points," Hiddink reflected.

"My former goalie Gomes was given man of the match and he highly deserves it because he made some tremendous saves in the last period of the game when we were threatening to go for the win.

"We dominated and controlled the game more in the second half than in the first, when they had some periods of danger with their set-pieces. Although they were not big chances it was the only period we had a little problem.

"Second half we deserved to win and regarding that we would have loved to have the three points here, but this is a not a league where you can easily win.

"Step by step we are getting more and more to the way we would like to play in terms of organisation and creating chances. We were not rewarded as we should have been tonight but I think the team is going into another state of play.

"Eden [Hazard] played in the FA Cup for a longer period. He is coming back from a difficult time with two injuries. We are being careful with him as we have a lot of games coming up now.

"I am happy with the way he played when he came on.

"The judgement is when to bring him on. We were in control and then we tried to get him to make the final punch which we almost did. For himself it's good to go step by step and we have a lot of games coming up when we need all the players."
