Andre Villas-boas is aiming to make an immediate impact on the Barclays Premier League when Chelsea return after the international break, with the side leaving on a high note after defeating Bolton 5-1 at the weekend.

Chelsea are currently third in the Barclays Premier League table, and after their morale boosting win against the Trotters, the side will disperse to represent their countries in Euro 2012 qualifiers and other international matches.


And while Villas-Boas would prefer to keep the games coming thick and fast while the Blues are on a role, the Portuguese manager says the team will bounce back immediately when they’re brought together again next week.

“The most important thing for when we get back from the international break is to respond straight away with a win, like we did against Sunderland [which Chelsea won 2-1],” Villas-Boas said.

“Those are the most difficult games you can get, when the team is reunited after the international break and you go straight away into the Premiership.

“We just have to focus on getting the concentration because it’s important for us to continue to challenge.”

While Chelsea haven’t been performing to the same heights as Manchester United and Manchester City, the Blues have been particularly strong in Europe, and are still in contention for the Barclays Premier League title just three points off the pace.

Chelsea return from the break for back-to-back home matches against Everton in the league and Genk in the Champions League.
