Guus Hiddink on the win, Eden Hazard, Bertrand Traore and Robert Kenedy


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says he is satisfied after his side registered yet another win in the English Premier League.

The Blues moved up to 8th in the table after a hard-fought 2-1 away win at Norwich City.

The Dutchman was happy with the first part of the game but less satisfied with what he saw in the second half as the hosts went close to restoring parity in the dying minutes of the game.

"We have now won a few games in a row which of course gives us satisfaction," Hiddink said.

"But when I look at the game we were a bit sloppy with our finishing. We had a splendid start through Kenedy, a beautiful goal. After that we had some options to get a second in the first half which we did at the end, but before that we should have killed it off.

"I am satisfied with the results we are getting but I always like to be critical with the way we could have finished it off earlier.

"They [Bertrand Traore and Robert Kenedy] are knocking on the door.

"They work seriously in training and then you have to play them, especially when there is a tight schedule. They need the experience of playing from the start in intense Premier League games which is why I don't hesitate to bring them in.

"Traore came on in the previous games and had good appearances with goals. Starting is a little bit different but it's good to have that experience. He stumbled a couple of times when he normally could have scored but that is a good experience for him.

"Eden [Hazard] has had a difficult time with injuries.

"It's good he is playing full, intense games and then he will grow in physical shape. He had some discomfort but I don't think it's a big problem. Kenedy was subbed because he has what is hopefully only a small injury in his groin."
