What they said:

Guus Hiddink: “The players responded well when I came in. I said to everyone, ‘what was your contribution in the year of the championship and the last half year?

“Don’t give me an answer by word but in training and in upcoming games’.

I think they responded.”

Mark Hughes: “They’ve got themselves into a position where they can have a strong finish and may well get into the European places.

“They may need others to slip up but they have the potential to go on a run which can take them a long way.”

What they said

Norwich boss Alex Neil: “Are you going to roll over and give up? We’re fighting for our lives and we want to stay in the Premier League.

A win changes everything.

“We are capable of a level that can get us positive results in the remaining 11 games.

“There is no point us dipping our toe in the water and being a bit cagey and hoping we see things out. We need to go and attack it.”

Player ratings: Southampton vs Chelsea

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: “When I started in December we were close to the relegation zone, one point away. Of course this club must have big objectives but it was a side objective to get away from the relegation zone as soon as possible.

“The team did well with draws and victories so in a relatively short time we’ve accomplished that in-between target.

That encourages us to go on.”

Team news and probable line ups

Pedro will miss the match after suffering a hamstring injury against Southampton, which forced him off the field after just seven minutes.

John Terry remains a doubt as Hiddink said on Saturday he doesn’t “want to take a big risk on his fitness”, although Radamel Falcao and Kurt Zouma will definitely be sidelined through injury.

Meanwhile, Abdul Baba Rahman could be sacrificed at left back for Kenedy after the former’s mistake at St Mary’s Stadium saw him replaced at the break before Hiddink praised Kenedy’s subsequent performance.

In contrast, the only injury concerns Norwich have to contend with is that to Andre Wisdom.

Norwich possible starting XI: Ruddy, Pinto, Bennett, Martin, Klose, Brady, Redmond, Tettey, Howson, Naismith, Jerome.

Chelsea possible starting XI: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ivanovic, Baba Rahman, Mikel, Fabregas, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Costa.

What they re saying

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: “The Chelsea we want to see is one which reacts to setbacks. We like to be proactive also, and this is what the team did, regaining possession as soon as possible and showing a huge desire to turn a negative result into a positive one.

“We emphasised that and the players responded.”

In Pictures: Southampton vs Chelsea

Norwich boss Alex Neil: “I don’t think we deserved that to lose to Leicester. In the game we had good chances and defensively we were solid.

We kept Vardy and Mahrez quiet and we certainly deserved something. There are a lot of things to take from it.

“We have a game on Tuesday and we’ll get it out of our system before then.”
