Villas-Boas sticking to philosophy

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas insists that Chelsea will stick to their attacking style of play, despite the side suffering from a lack of defence at the hands of Arsenal yesterday.

With both sides pushing forward for the whole 90 minutes, the match-up between Chelsea and Arsenal was particularly exciting for fans and pundits alike, but the Gunners got the better of their cross-town rivals, winning 5-3.

But Villas-Boas has quashed suggestions that Chelsea’s new form of play was their undoing in the match, insisting that the side just need to iron out a few kinks in their game plan.

“The philosophy is a personal value and a club value,” he explained.

“You should never sell it cheaply. It is something that makes us all proud and we will stick to this philosophy.

“It is our way of playing and we are proud of the way we play. We just have to correct things.”

Villas-Boas is looking beyond the loss to Chelsea’s Champions League match-up against Genk on Tuesday. And the Portuguese manager believes that while Chelsea are looking to end a two game long losing streak in the league, they’re in a winning position on the European stage.

“In the Champions League the scenario is another one,” he said.

“We can get in a very good position if we win the game. We have a chance of qualifying if Leverkusen wins. It's a different situation.

“Regarding the Blackburn game it is two defeats in the Premiership and we have to bounce back with a win. We will have to find winning ways straight away.”
