Hiddink misses out on ‘deserved three points’

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink believes his side earned two points fewer than they should have in their 0-0 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road on Wednesday.

The Blues are now undefeated in their last eight games, but five of those have been stalemates and the Dutchman was displeased to have missed another opportunity to gain maximum points.

"I'm disappointed because we didn't get the deserved three points," Hiddink said, before singling out Brazilian goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, a former charge of his at PSV Eindhoven, for keeping the Hornets in the game.

"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."
