Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez says he wasn't surprised by Brentford's performance for yesterday's FA Cup draw.

The Bees pushed Chelsea all the way to draw 2-2.

"Brentford did well, we knew they would play with a high tempo and try to press. Our scouts did a good job because we knew everything they could do, but they did it well, so credit to them.

"As a team they showed great character. You could see the manager on the touchline telling them what they needed to do and they did it," said Benitez.
