Benitez said: "When you analyse Chelsea's season then you must agree that Avram Grant has done a good job.
"They were in the final of the Carling Cup, they are in the race for title still and in the Champions League semi-final, so he must be doing a good job.
"He has good players and he is doing his job really well. I understand why he is under pressure, but that is nothing unusual for a top side.
"Everybody wants you to win every game and every trophy. That is not easy, but the statistics show he is doing a good job."
