Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez refused to lay into his players despite watching them stumble to an embarrassing loss to Swansea in which he suffered yet more abuse from the Stamford Bridge faithful.

Benitez's hopes of winning his first Chelsea trophy were hanging by a very thin thread on Wednesday after the Blues put in a terrible performance to go down to a 2-0 home defeat in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.

But Benitez said: "The team are doing well. You can lose a game and then analyse it, but if you play this game 10 times maybe you will win nine of them. I think the team were doing really well, had a lot of chances and could have scored two or three in the first half, but we made two mistakes and paid for them."
