Hiddink to go with big guns

21 May 2009 04:22
Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink has confirmed that he will not be fielding an under-strength side in their final Premier League match at Sunderland. The Black Cats can still be relegated on the final day if results go against them and they are beaten at the Stadium of Light. With Chelsea due to play in the FA Cup final next week, there was some hope on Wearside that the Dutchman may rest some of his big names. But Hull City and Newcastle - who can both overtake Sunderland - will be pleased to know that Chelsea's full team will be lining up on 'Survival Sunday'. "I don't want to rest a lot of people because they need to maintain their physical shape and also the way we want them to play," said Hiddink. "If I rest too many people then I don't think it's good preparation for Wembley."
