Andre Villas-Boas has "parted company" with Chelsea, the club have confirmed.

The 34-year-old lost his job less than 24 hours after Saturday's Barclays Premier League defeat at West Brom, which left the Blues fifth in the table.

Chelsea also announced assistant manager Roberto Di Matteo would take charge of the team until the end of the season.
