Hiddink meets Chelsea players at training ground
-Interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has met his new players for the first time as he prepares to revive the Premier League club's faltering season.
The 62-year-old Dutchman, who has replaced fired Luiz Felipe Scolari until the end of season, was accompanied by owner Roman Abramovich at the Chelsea training complex Thursday.
Hiddink, who will remain Russia coach, will let assistant manger Ray Wilkins oversee Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round match at Watford before taking control on Monday ahead of the following weekend's league match at Aston Villa.
Chelsea is two points adrift third-placed Villa and seven behind leader Manchester United.

Luiz Felipe Scolari has been dismissed as manager of Chelsea Football Club today (Monday) with immediate effect.
The Chelsea board would like to place on record our gratitude for his time as manager.
Felipe has brought many positives to the club since he joined and we all feel a sense of sadness that our relationship has ended so soon.
Unfortunately the results and performances of the team appeared to be deteriorating at a key time in the season.
In order to maintain a challenge for the trophies we are still competing for we felt the only option was to make the change now.
The search for a new manager has already started and we hope to have someone in place as soon as possible.
While that continues Assistant Coach Ray Wilkins will take charge of the team on a temporary basis.

New arrival Ricardo Quaresma has been given the squad number 18.
It's a number made vacant by Wayne Bridge's move to Manchester City during the transfer window.
The loan-signing from Inter will discover tomorrow if he is part of the Portugal squad to play a home friendly against Finland next week. He was used as a substitute by manager Carlo Queiroz in the most recent World Cup qualifier back in October.
Quaresma has 25 international caps and three goals to his name.

An independent regulatory commission hearing today upheld Lampard's claim, resulting in the withdrawal of his three-match suspension.
The third dismissal of Lampard's career carried farcical overtones as replay showed the England midfielder made contact with the ball first.
Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari leapt to Lampard's defence, insisting the challenge was legitimate - and the club lodged their appeal with the FA yesterday.
Chelsea received another boost with the news that full-back Jose Bosingwa would face no action after kicking Yossi Benayoun in stoppage time - Riley awarded a free-kick for the challenge but no card.

The 25-year-old winger can play on either flank, with his qualities of speed and finesse a regular problem for opposing defences.
Born in Lisbon on September 26, 1983, Ricardo Andrade Quaresma Bernardo began his career with local club Sporting, making his debut as a 17-year-old.
While at Sporting, he worked his way into the first team and became a regular during the championship-winning 2001/02 season alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
He made 59 league appearances in two seasons, scoring eight goals, before Barcelona approached for his services in the summer of 2003, paying six million Euros to secure his signature.
Quaresma's form in the 2005/06, 2006/07 and 2007/08 campaigns helped seal a succession of league championships, and regular Champions League football.
He is no stranger to Stamford Bridge, having played four times as a Porto player against the Blues, twice in 2004/05 and twice again two years later.
Quaresma becomes our first and only signing of the winter transfer window, and will stay with us until the end of the season.
