Rafael Benitez agreed with Roberto Mancini that he needed to "win, win, win, win, win, win, win" to avoid a repeat of the nightmare welcome he was given as Chelsea manager after Sunday's goalless draw with Manchester City.
Interim boss Benitez vowed to turn the jeers into cheers having been subjected to the most vitriolic reception imaginable at Stamford Bridge for what was his first match in charge.
Opposite number Mancini claimed the only way for former Liverpool manager Benitez to win over his new club's supporters was to "win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win every game" and Benitez said: "It's not a secret. It's true."
