Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas admits his Chelsea future is under increased pressure after a Gareth McAuley goal sent his side to a 1-0 defeat at West Brom.

But Villas-Boas maintains that he is still the right man for the job despite conceding his side "weren't good enough" at The Hawthorns. Chelsea have now won only three of their last 12 Barclays Premier League games and have slipped three points behind Arsenal in the battle for the final Champions League spot.

Villas-Boas said: "Will this result increase pressure on me? You have to agree with it. We are in the same position, fifth, but we are now three points behind Arsenal. It is a big, big disappointment. Every defeat Chelsea suffers piles more pressure on any manager."
