Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink admitted his side’s title hopes had been extinguished after the Blues were held to a goalless draw by Everton at Stamford Bridge.

His side are now six points behind Manchester United, who beat Portsmouth 2-0 on Wednesday, having played a game more than the league leaders.

Asked if that was the end of their title hopes, he told Sky Sports: “Totally not but it’s near the end, let’s be honest and face the facts. They (Manchester United) had their win as expected.

“And what we said beforehand – we can not waste any points – which we did tonight and that’s why I think, yes it is finished for us at this moment I think.”

He believed his side did not play intelligently enough against a well organised team.

“We worked hard but we did not work properly in using the width,” he said. “I think they were well organised defensively and they played a good counter to be honest but we did not have the intelligence to break through their massive defence.”

“We worked hard but that was not enough to beat them.”
