Rafael Benitez believes Chelsea are in good shape despite losing a two-goal lead to Premier League strugglers Reading in their last fixture, drawing with League One Brentford in the FA Cup and losing to Swansea City in the Capital One Cup, ESPN has reported.

Chelsea were in front at the Madejski Stadium as the match went into injury time, their advantage already halved by Adam Le Fondre but the Royals still trailed 2-1. However, Le Fondre struck again in the fifth minute of time added on to restore parity and leave Chelsea 13 points adrift of league leaders Manchester United.

The result means Chelsea have not won any of their last three games in three different competitions, without a victory since beating Arsenal in mid-January, and the game prior to the victory over the Gunners saw Southampton come back from two goals down to also draw 2-2, this time at Stamford Bridge.

Benitez however insists he is not worried by the inconsistent form his side has shown. He said: “I think if you look at the games we didn't win, we could have won all of them. The team is doing quite well. I felt that the performance of the team has been good. In all of the games, we had chances to win.
