Di Matteo has no doubts over quality of Chelsea squad

Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo believes in the quality of his squad.

The Italian is preparing for their Champions League clash with Benfica.

"Everybody seems to have an opinion, and they have that right, but I disagree," said Di Matteo. "I believe in my team, my squad, my players.

"I don't think we're a weak team, not at all.

"We have, still, many games to play in the Premier League to reach fourth, and two games in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"It looked a little gloomier two weeks ago, so we're pleased to be here.

"If we had a few more points in the Premier League, we wouldn't be talking like this.

"It's a very fine line between success and failure. This team has all the ability to play a very good game tomorrow night and show the qualities these players have."
