Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez slams the media's coverage of his side following Sunday's victory over Sunderland in the Premier League.

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has hit out at the media following Sunday's 2-1 win over Sunderland in the Premier League.

The Blues came from behind at Stamford Bridge to move up to third place in the table.

However, Benitez took the opportunity after the match to criticise recent reports concerning his side's fortunes.

"Two or three days before it was a crisis, two hours before the game it was the end of the world. Now we are in the top three again," the Spaniard told Sky Sports News.

"The media, you are too quick, too fast, everything is going too fast. We have to settle down and analyse things and have more relaxation when you do your analysis."

Chelsea resume their Europa League campaign on Thursday when they take a 3-1 first-leg advantage to Russia to face Rubin Kazan in the quarter-finals.
