Benzema believes that his goal against Espanyol will help him get more chances under Mourinho.
"We are talking a lot together. Really I have no problem with him," the 22-year-old told L'Equipe. "I know he likes me and he relies on me.
"During training sessions, he's always breathing down my neck, for me to give my very best. He is very demanding and to me it is a good sign. That means he counts on me.
"Frankly, I feel fine both mentally and physically. I am convinced my turn will come. It is up to me to be decisive when I get an opportunity. Even with just a few minutes."
