Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez admits the players are struggling for motivation in the Europa League.

Benitez was pleased with their 1-0 Europa League first-leg victory at Sparta Prague.

"This is the competition we have to play in now, the players have to realise it's another opportunity to win a trophy. If we progress, they will see that, and hopefully we can keep the team playing well and winning games until the end."
