QPR boss Redknapp tells Rafa: You'd be a DOPE to mess up Chelsea

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has downplayed Rafa Benitez's success at Chelsea.

Chelsea go into the clash on the back of five consecutive domestic wins and, after a rocky start to his time as their interim manager, Benitez is starting to turn the tide.

But Redknapp said: "It's different at Chelsea. He walked into a squad of players there who are Champions League winners, so you've got a chance.

"You would have had to have been a real dope to have messed it up with that group. They have incredible players and Rafa is an intelligent guy."
