Chelsea sacked Scolari, replacing him with Russian national manager Guus Hiddink for the remainder of the 2008/09 season. Hiddink's regenerative effect was immediate, with four straight league wins, including a vital 1-0 victory away to Aston Villa in his first game in charge, moving Chelsea into the top three. Eleven wins in the team's last thirteen league games, marked by a 4-1 victory over Arsenal away at the Emirates Stadium, finally secured third place in the league, and Champions League football for a seventh consecutive season.
Although Chelsea's title challenge was already realistically over when he arrived, Hiddink led Chelsea to their fifth Champions League semi-final, knocking out Juventus and Liverpool before they were eliminated by FC Barcelona on away goals in the semi-final, with the performance of second leg referee Tom Henning Ovrebo proving particularly controversial.
Despite the Champions League exit, the season culminated in a trip to Wembley Stadium, with Chelsea's final game of 2008-09 contested against Everton in the 2009 FA Cup Final. Chelsea won 2-1, winning the FA Cup trophy for the fifth time in their history.
