Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has reminded Neil Warnock that Sheffield United's relegation from the Barclays Premier League was not decided by one match alone.

Leeds boss Warnock is unsure whether he will shake Benitez's hand before Wednesday's Capital One Cup quarter-final due to a dispute between the two dating back to 2007 when the Blues boss Benitez selected what Warnock perceived to be a weakened team in Liverpool's penultimate game of the season against Fulham - which Fulham won and United were relegated.

The Spaniard is willing to shake hands in an effort to avoid controversy, but said: "Every person has their ideas of each other. I'm professional and will try to do my job and won't be involved in anything, but what I will say is that the league is 38 games and not just one match."
