Chelsea's Benitez: We will keep an eye on Bale but Tottenham must also watch us

Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez has indicated that his side will be mindful of Gareth Bale in tomorrow's London derby with Tottenham.

The Welsh ace continues to score vital goals for Spurs as they chase a Champions League spot and although Benitez is aware of his ability, he has implored Andre Villas-Boas to also be careful of the quality he will deploy at Stamford Bridge.

"I think he is a good manager, he is working hard for his new team," Benitez said. "They're in a good position and doing well.

"Bale is very good, having a great season and scoring a lot of crucial goals for them. He is playing in different positions and doing well in all of them.

"The way we play, we have a good team with good players. We have to keep an eye on him but they have to keep an eye on ours."
