Hiddink could turn to Chelsea's youngsters

Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink said he could turn to promising young players to get the London club's Premier League title challenge back on track.

Hiddink, who transformed a drab Russia team into an exciting one that reached the Euro 2008 semi-finals by bringing in inexperienced young players, hinted he could draw on that successful tactic during his temporary spell at Stamford Bridge.

''Even if you are a big club ... you will always create some space for youngsters,'' he told Sky Sports News.

''There are always promising youngsters and that's why we have to keep an eye on them. If they have the quality to come in, we don't hesitate to (bring them in).''

Hiddink, appointed to manage the London club until the end of the season after last week's sacking of Luiz Felipe Scolari, watched his reserves beat Portsmouth reserves 6-0 on Monday in the company of club owner Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea are fourth in the Premier League and trail leaders Manchester United by seven points having played one game more.

The Dutchman's first challenge is Saturday's trip to third-placed Aston Villa and around 6,000 Chelsea fans turned up at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday to watch an open training session to gauge how Hiddink might handle it.
