Rafa hails the striker who has finally come good.
"We have to give credit to our players, they were very good," said Benitez. "We have done well in some games but that was one of the best mentalities in the way we competed for the ball.
"[Salomon] Rondon did well - he has to improve his fitness but he was working well and trying to fight the defenders. He showed what he can do and is giving us something different."
