Roman Abramovich was so angry with Roberto Di Matteo disobeying his orders to play Fernando Torres that he fired him and replaced him with a Spanish geography teacher. That guy just lost 3-1 to West Ham.
Out of three matches Benitez's Chelsea have amassed an enormous two points, including zero points against their London rivals. And when I say rivals I mean that they are also a football team comprised of humans and based in a reasonable proximity to Chelsea. But with far less money and resources. It's like having a fight with a homeless person while you're dressed in a gold suit, if you were a robot and Rafa Benitez was in control of you. So in another way, it's absolutely nothing like that.
