The proverb states that patience is a virtue. After six months in the job at Chelsea, Rafa Benitez is beginning to harvest the fruits of his labor at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard came into the club on an interim basis in November following the departure of Roberto Di Matteo. In that time, things have been far from plain sailing, yet Chelsea now look set to deliver on Benitez's sole task of achieving a Top Four finish.

Not only that, there's every possibility Benitez could deliver silverware in the form of the Europa League. Chelsea are in a commanding position going into Thursday's semifinal, the second leg with FC Basel at Stamford Bridge, leading the tie 2-1. Given their dominance against the Swiss in the first outing, it will be a major shock if Chelsea do not find themselves in another European final come the final whistle.
