Zimbabwe star Benjani said: "He will definitely score goals soon. He has the ability and all he needs to do is keep working hard. I know, course, how difficult it is when you come into a new team and are unfamiliar with the players alongside you."

He also insists Portsmouth do not view their trip to Stamford Bridge as a lost cause.

"This is the second of four big games for us and we did well to take a point against Manchester United," he said.

"Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are next but we will go to fight all of them because they like to pass the ball around and don't like our way of running for everything."
