Petr Cech: The Chelsea shot-stopper is happy with Rafa Benitez

The Spaniard, who is the ninth boss Cech has had at the club, revealed that he would only be staying at the west London outfit until the end of the season.

However, with the Blues winning four of their last five matches as well as reaching the final of the Europa League, Cech says the squad are in a much better position now than when he took over.

He told the Daily Star: "It would be a relief to have a manager that stayed for five years!

"We are in the (Europa League) final and we are in a better position than when he took the team over.

"We have got better defensively and we are still scoring goals.

"It was not an easy job for him and, in difficult circumstances, I think he has been doing really well."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
