The second interim spell at Chelsea under Guus Hiddink started in the best possible fashion last Saturday as the Blues ran out comfortable 3-1 winners over a poor Sunderland side.
With the Dutchman watching from the stands alongside Didier Drogba and Roman Abramovich, Stamford Bridge was vociferously electric with chants of Jose Mourinho’s name throughout the 90 minutes with Chelsea supporters solely blaming the players for their embarrassing Premier League campaign so far.
With Hiddink having only suffered one defeat in his last spell with the Blues, despite their disappointment at Mourinho’s departure, many Chelsea fans admit that Hiddink is a favourable name to come in at their time of need.
An extremely experienced manager who will command the respect of the playing staff, Chelsea face a home game against Watford on Boxing Day that will truly test the Blues’ mettle with Quique Sanchez Flores’ side enjoying the league season of their lives.
Last weekend however, several members of Chelsea’s first team seemed to step it up a number of levels, none more so than Oscar who was absolutely sensational on the day.
Despite being a huge contributor in the Blues winning a much-needed three points, our Chelsea fans in the tavern can’t help but feel betrayed that these kind of performances just weren’t seen from the Brazilian under Mourinho.
It remains to be seen where Chelsea can get to in the league under Hiddink this term but with the Watford game in prospect, we’re taking this moment to list the five best Blues strikes from the 2015/16 campaign so far.
