Cech pleads with Chelsea fans: Give Benitez a chance

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has urged fans to give new manager Rafa Benitez "a chance". During their stalemate with Manchester City, home supporters held up banners reading 'Rafa Out Fact' in reference to his infamous 'fact' rant when he was boss of Liverpool.

Cech said: "Mr Benitez was the Liverpool coach and we had a lot of rivalry with Liverpool, so it comes from there.

"He is here to try to change things and try to put us in the winning mode so he needs to get the chance."
