Hiddink's turgid football and Hazard approach frustrates Chelsea fans

Guus Hiddink says Chelsea have drawn too many matches during his spell as interim manager.

While Diego Costa's injury-time goal against Manchester United in Sunday's 1-1 draw preserved Chelsea's unbeaten record under interim manager Guus Hiddink, yet another draw left many supporters feeling frustrated by the Dutchman's overcautious approach.

Thibaut Courtois' heorics kept Chelsea alive to draw vs. Manchester United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Chelsea's pressure paid off in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

An injury-time strike from Diego Costa earned Chelsea a 1-1 draw against Manchester United in a game that could have gone either way given the amount of chances created by both sides.

The match ebbed and flowed throughout, with United dominating the opening period of each half as Chelsea came on strong as each half developed. It meant that the visitors pinned the Blues back for the first 25 minutes of the contest while Chelsea were unable to escape their own half of the field or enjoy any time...

1. Costa denies United

By contrast to the pyrotechnics that Leicester City are currently producing, a match that was once a critical Premier League fixture -- often with the title at stake -- did not brim with quality and instead looked just as it was: a battle between 13th and fifth in the table.

Chelsea will...
