Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo says he'll continue to test the depth of his squad.

The Italian was praised for his bold team selection at Benfica, while his players have been queuing up to hail his man management, the kind of backing Andre Villas-Boas did not enjoy.

Di Matteo said: "There are a number of players who, maybe, haven't had much chance or didn't play as much and are now getting more game time and expressing themselves at a very good level.

"We are a team and have to behave like a team."
