Chelsea's formidable interim coach Guus Hiddink insists his hugely talented Blues side are capable of preventing Manchester United from completing an unprecedented quintuple.

United, who face Inter Milan in the return leg of their last-16 tie at Old Trafford tomorrow night, are looking to add the FA Cup, Champions

League and Barclays Premier to the Carling and FIFA Club World trophies.

For the Blues could meet Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in the final of the FA Cup and in the latter stages of the

Champions League.

"They’d like to have the quintuple," concedes Hiddink. "It is very rare but they are on all roads.

"If we threw the towel in, there’d be no competition. They’re aiming at five, and that’s a hell of a lot."
