Hiddink fears relegation battle

Guus Hiddink fears Chelsea could be dragged in the relegation battle if they drop points in the next few matches.

The Blues are currently 14th after 21 games and are just six points above the relegation zone, although they are unbeaten in six games since Jose Mourinho departed the club in December.

Their next two games are against Everton and Arsenal and Hiddink admits defeats in those matches could leave the club in danger of a relegation battle.

"It's reality. We were down when we started. We were one point off the relegation line, but now we have a little bit more room to breathe," Hiddink said ahead of the game against Everton.

"We have two difficult games coming up - Everton, who have a very good away record - and then Arsenal.

"If you don't gather points there, you don't know what the others do. The Premier League can surprise you.

"There are 12 points difference to fourth place, which is Tottenham.

"We all like to look forward and to the top of the table, but also don't be unrealistic - you're six points off the line of relegation. That's also a fact.

"We have to work hard and be very concentrated and gather our points to step up.

"That's why it was a pity that in the 86th minute we got this draw against West Brom, which would've helped us a lot to go up."
