Sam Wallace of The Telegraph has revealed that Chelsea are set to hire Guus Hiddink as a temporary replacement for Jose Mourinho.

The west London outfit have secured just four wins from their opening 16 Premier League games and are a mammoth 20 points behind league leaders Leicester City.

Incredibly, after Monday night's defeat at the hands of Claudio Ranieri's side, the Premier League champions are just one point above the relegation zone.
And Hiddink looks set to take over at Stamford Bridge for the second time after initially managing the club as an interim in 2009.
Wallace stated: "Guus Hiddink to replace Jose Mourinho until the end of the season."
But they have long-term targets...
In fact, it has been reported that the club's hierarchy have three top targets to replace Jose Mourinho in the dugout at Stamford Bridge.
This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that the Blues have an interest in the services of Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone and Antonio Conte.
The long-term future of Guardiola has been the subject of much debate recently, with Sky Sports reporting that he will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
Atletico Madrid boss Simeone and Italy manager Conte also appear to be in contention for the top job, but it appears that the club will initially hire Hiddink.
