EPL: Benitez gets torrid welcome as Chelsea draw City

Rafa Benitez endured a hostile reception and gave the restless Chelsea fans nothing to cheer about as his first match in charge ended in a drab 0-0 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

Three days after Chelsea replaced Roberto Di Matteo with Benitez, there was no sign of improvement from a team which has only one win in its past five Premier League matches.

The meeting of the champions of England (City) and Europe (Chelsea) failed to produce any real attacking moments of note.

Fernando Torres was restored to Chelsea's starting lineup but the misfiring striker, who was so prolific under Benitez at Liverpool, squandered his only meaningful chance in the second half.

Chelsea has dropped to fourth below West Bromwich Albion, while City stays second behind Manchester United.
