Fulham manager Martin Jol believes Chelsea fans will soon get over their dislike for Rafael Benitez once the Blues start picking up a few wins.

The Spaniard was appointed manager last week after Roberto di Matteo was unceremoniously sacked as Chelsea boss, despite having led the club to both the Champions League and FA Cup last season. The former midfielder's popularity coupled with Benitez's Liverpool past produced a poisonous atmosphere during Sunday's goalless draw with Manchester City.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's west London derby, Jol said: "I think it had more to do with Di Matteo. He was much appreciated there because he did well as a player and, I think, he did well as a manager, to be fair."
