Manchester City defender Micah Richards is being linked with a shock move to Chelsea. Richards, who has been injured for most of the season, was spotted at Stamford Bridge an hour before kickoff last night.

Benitez was given the chance after Chelsea's shock 1-0 defeat by QPR to confirm that Richards was only in London to watch the game.

Instead, just as he responded to questions about his incoming signing Demba Ba, he simply replied: 'We don't discuss other teams' players.'
