Cahill: Rafa starting to win people over

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill believes manager Rafael Benitez is starting to transform people's opinions after the Blues' stunning 8-0 win against Aston Villa on Sunday.

• Blog: Luiz reinvented in rout

Following their defeat in the Club World Cup final in Japan seven days before, Chelsea notched up a sensational eight-goal win against hapless Villa side at Stamford Bridge, as they added to their five-goal haul in the Capital One Cup against Leeds a few days before.

It added up to the perfect response from much-maligned interim boss Benitez, with Cahill claiming the influence of the new Chelsea manager is starting to reap rewards.

"There won't be one of our fans watching who didn't enjoy our display and hopefully we can continue and I am sure we will win people over with performances like that," Cahill told Chelsea's official website.

"We needed a reaction from losing the final in Japan which was a big blow for us, and it shows the character in the team that we came back with hardly any rest and got the good result at Leeds and then again on Sunday.

"We showed what we are capable of and it is just a matter of consistency now. We have a lot of young players but on a day like Sunday you can really see the quality in the squad. If we play like that we won't go far wrong."

Chelsea will look to continue their stunning scoring form when they travel to Norwich on Wednesday, with the England defender expecting a tougher test from Chris Hughton's men than they were given by Villa.

"Norwich away is always a tough game and we found that when we went there last year," he said. "No doubt it will be similar but we go into the match with great confidence.

"Sunday was a day when everything came together for us. Without being disrespectful to Aston Villa, it is a rare scoreline and you feel a bit sorry for them but at the same time, we had to do a job and we have shown what we can do.

"The positive thing was we didn't sit back when we had scored two or three. We kept going until the 90th minute and we got our rewards for that and that will give us confidence leading in to the Norwich game."
