Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech can sense the fans are coming around to supporting Rafa Benitez.

As they prepared for their debut in FIFA's Club World Cup, there was a hint from Cech that supporters who fiercely opposed the change of manager last month may be moving on.

"In the last two games, in the Champions League against Nordsjaelland and versus Sunderland, the support was very good," said Cech.

"The atmosphere is getting better as the results and performances are getting better.

"You need results and better performances to get this pressure off the team and make the supporters happier. I think we are seeing it in a different way. We are on a good road now to changing that. The support we had at Sunderland was brilliant."
