Rafael Benitez does not feel Chelsea's 8-0 thrashing of Aston Villa has made the rest of the Barclays Premier League sit up and take notice, believing they were already wary of them to start with.

The Blues ran riot at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, with seven different players getting on the scoresheet - a Premier League first - while it would have been more but for a missed Lucas Piazon penalty.

When asked if other teams would now be fearing them, Benitez said: "No. They knew Chelsea were a top side before, and still are. They will be dangerous and will have game-plans and ideas. Maybe they will be more careful playing against us, but they had a lot of respect for Chelsea before."
