It's a question that's up for debate today and I am sure people will have differing opinions. However, we cannot ignore the facts. Rafa Benitez is under immense pressure at the moment and in danger of slipping out of the top four!

You have to wonder if the break this week has come at the right time for Benitez or if it could work against him with the players only reporting back for training tomorrow ahead of Wigan on Saturday.

Some will argue that having three or four days to step away from Cobham and the players will give Rafa time to take stock of everything and to refocus on the job at hand. It's been reported in the media that he is someone who focuses on attention to detail, so you would imagine that he would have watched videos on our performances and the "mistakes" we have been making at the back.

The problem is, he only has two days to implement changes before the game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and it may not be enough time.

Looking at things from a different perspective, this week could be a nightmare for Benitez with the majority of the players being away. He can plan and prepare things as much as possible but tomorrow you would imagine the players having a warm down and taking things easy.

When things are going wrong you need time to get together, to iron out the problems and to work together to put things right. If anything, he simply hasn't got that this week and Wigan will pose Chelsea problems once again this weekend.

People are talking about the game being breaking point for Benitez if we lose or drop points and I agree. With Spurs and Everton breathing down our necks, more disappointment in this one could see us slip down to fifth and out of the top four which could be a disaster.

What do you people think here? Do you think that the international break has come at the right time for Rafa or could it make things worse ahead of Wigan?
