Ray Wilkins believes it is "out of the question" that Chelsea would sack under-fire new manager Rafael Benitez before the end of the season.
Benitez has overseen two draws and Saturday's 3-1 defeat to West Ham since he was recruited on an interim basis to replace Roberto Di Matteo. The Spaniard admitted he was "not 100%" certain of his future but Wilkins, the former Chelsea assistant boss, cannot see Roman Abramovich making another managerial change.
"I would think that is totally out of the question," Wilkins told Sportsweek on Radio Five Live.
