Reading: Rafael Benitez has warned his Chelsea side they must cut out the defensive errors that have threatened to derail the London club's campaign in recent weeks.

Benitez was left frustrated after his side conceded a two-goal lead in the final three minutes of Wednesday's Premier League match away to Reading, eventually being held to a 2-2 draw at the Madejski Stadium.

The result prevented Chelsea from extending their lead over fourth-placed Tottenham to six points. It came on the back of a League Cup semi-final defeat by Swansea and an unexpected FA Cup draw with third-tier Brentford.
