Benitez In Search Of First Win

Benitez: We Can Still Win League

Rafael Benitez is hoping to claim his first win as Chelsea manager tomorrow at West Ham United.

Benitez has admitted that his side are desperate for a goal but said it wouldn’t mean a great deal unless his side win.

Chelsea haven’t scored a goal for over  five-hours and many pundits have pointed the finger at out of form striker Fernando Torres .

Asked if the first goal of his reign would come as a relief, Benitez said: "More to win than score.

"We are close in terms of what we are trying to achieve in attack.

"The team has improved the shape in defence, but we need to be a bit quicker in attack.

"Scoring will give us all confidence. The team needs to score and to win."

Benching the creative Juan Mata mid-week against Fulham and keeping the faith with Torres infuriated the Chelsea fans further.

A defeat against West Ham and owner Roman Abramovich may start to rue his decision to offer Benitez the job.
