Benitez seeking home comforts

Published Add your comment

Rafael Benitez has denied criticism from Chelsea's fans is affecting his team's home performances and vowed to make Stamford Bridge the impenetrable fortress he encountered when he was Liverpool boss.

The Blues have chalked up six wins on the road during Benitez's reign, but they have only managed one victory in six attempts at their west London home. Chelsea's latest bout of home sickness came on Wednesday night when they feebly surrendered a two-goal lead to emerge with only a point against lowly Southampton.

Benitez, who only won at Stamford Bridge once in 12 attempts during his time at Liverpool, said: "It was always tough, always difficult when I went to Stamford Bridge (as Liverpool boss)."
