Benayoun keen to earn Chelsea starting spot

CHELSEA newcomer Yossi Benayoun insists he is ready to force his way into the starting line-up after starting his first three games on the bench.
Benayoun, who endured a similarly peripheral role after swapping West Ham for Liverpool, opened his Blues account after coming on in Saturday’s 6-0 mauling of Wigan.

“I know I can do it; I did it before in my career,” he said. “When I arrived at Liverpool, I knew I had to wait on the bench and try to change games and now I’m doing it for Chelsea.
