Rafa Benitez plans Chelsea changes

Rafa Benitez, ChelseaRafael Benitez has admitted he will continue to rotate his squad in every game in order to keep Chelsea on course for the top four.

The Blues interim manager shuffled his pack for the 3-1 win over Rubin Kazan on Thursday night in the Europa League, with Yossi Benayoun, Fernando Torres, Victor Moses and John Terry all being drafting into the starting XI.

With their Europa League and FA Cup campaigns going strongly, Benitez will now turn his attention to the visit of struggling Sunderland this Sunday in the Premier League.

Chelsea could find themselves out of the top four by the time they kick-off against the Black Cats and Benitez has admitted he will continue to rotate his squad to the best of his abilities in order to keep the European champions fighting on three fronts.

“We know that it will be difficult, but I have confidence that we can manage the squad,” Benitez said.

“We can make changes between or before games so the players have fresh legs and we can carry on until the end.

“I don’t know how many we will change, but we’ll have to change players, that is true.”
