Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has dismissed the quality of champions Manchester United.

Benitez insists player-for-player United are no better than Chelsea.

"People always like to talk about mind games, but who normally wins these meetings? The team with the better players.

"You can't play mind games when you have a team at the bottom of the table because you will never win.

"But when you have a very good team you can play mind games with everyone because you can win. And we have a very good team at Chelsea.

"Better than United? It depends. They have been more consistent than anyone this season so they deserve the title.

"But are they better than Manchester City and Chelsea? I'm not so sure."
