Rafa Benitez is happy to handle the expectations at Chelsea.

Tomorrow’s rivals Arsenal have not won a thing since 2005 without manager Arsene Wenger ever having to fear for his job.

Benitez said: “I like to be always under pressure to win a trophy — I come from Real Madrid where even finishing second is unacceptable.

“To be in the middle of the table and stay there for 10 years is not my idea. For me, you have to do your best every time.”
