Benitez says Chelsea out of title race

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez says they're out of the title race. He remains upbeat about winning silverware to appease the disgruntled Chelsea support, but he admits the league title is now out of reach.

"In terms of the league I don't think we can do it," Benitez said.

"But the Capital Cup is there, the FA Cup is still open and the Europa League is still open.

"I just have to give the team the confidence that we can win against anyone. If you have that belief it becomes easier.

"The team is very close. We have (John) Terry and (Frank) Lampard back from injury. Now we have to be more consistent."
