Benitez, aware that Ferguson had continued their war of words 24 hours earlier by showing surprise that the Spaniard was thinking about him ahead of the Chelsea match, added: "Sir Alex is talking again about Liverpool, I do not mind that but he is maybe showing he is nervous.
"I was more concerned with the way we played, the chances we created and the goals that we scored.
"My only concern was that we did not score more. Goal difference will be very important if this title race goes to the wire.
"So I was pleased that we managed to get another couple near the end. I felt we were always in control and it just depended on whether we made any mistakes to let them back into the game."
