Yossi Benayoun Scores a Stunner

Former Liverpool player Yossi Benayoun scored a delightful goal for Chelsea as the last season’s runners up began their pre-season campaign with a 3-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers. The Israeli who was injured for most part of last season collected a pass from Gael Kakuta, flicked the ball once, twice with the third one going over the Wycombe keeper to put Villas Boas’ men on course for the win in his first game since taking over from Carlo Ancelotti.

Serbian Slobodan Rajkovic scored the second with another former Liverpool player Fernando Torres scoring the third for his only second goal for the Blue men since his big money move from Anfield. However, it was Benayoun’s goal that was the highlight of the match which was played behind-closed-doors. Villas Boas fielded a total of 23 players over two halves for the friendly played at Cobham.

Chelsea 1st Half: Henrique Hilario, Jose Bosingwa, Kalas, John Terry (Captain), Patrick van Aanholt, Florent Malouda, Kaby, Obi Mikel, Gael Kakuta, Yossi Benayoun, Didier Drogba.

Chelsea 2nd Half: Ross Turnbull, Paulo Ferreira (Captain), Branislav Ivanovic, Rajkovic, Ashley Cole, B. Clifford (Mellis 65), McEachran, Yuri Zhirkov, Salomon Kalou, Nicolas Anelka, Fernando Torres.
