Brazilian midfielder Ramires is hoping Chelsea stick by Andre Villas-Boas despite his tough start to life at Stamford Bridge.

After a near perfect season with Porto last term, Villas-Boas has endured a tough time with The Blues, losing seven of his first 29 games in charge.

Victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers, where Ramies netted the first for Chelsea, papered over the cracks somewhat, with performances still mistake ridden, but Ramies wants the Portuguese boss to stay.

"If Andre leaves, someone else will come – and if it keeps going on like that, we won't get anywhere,” Ramires said.

"The players know what Andre has done for the club.

"It's an injustice to make the manager the one who's responsible for everything that happens with a team.

"He's doing what he can until the players go on the pitch.

"From that moment, it's not up to him, it's not for him to run or compete for a ball.

"This is all part of the period of adaptation. We're trying to do what he wants but, unfortunately, there are times when we won't win.

"We're not playing badly. We have to go on the pitch with a seriousness and desire to win until the end."
