11:35 AM ET 12.02 | Former Chelsea assistant manager Ray Wilkins insists that it is "totally out of the question" to suppose the club would sack interim boss Rafa Benitez before the season is over. The 52-year-old took over from Roberto Di Matteo after the Stamford Bridge side fell to a 3-0 defeat against Juventus to leave their Champions League hopes hanging by a thread. However, while the Italian's replacement has picked up just two points from his first three games, Wilkins believes that Benitez will remain at the club until the end of the season.
