Villas-Boas won't change attacking mentality

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas doesn't want his side to stop attacking, to help assist their defensive woes.

Many have noted that The Blues' attacking intent has often left them short at the back, emphasised as they conceded five against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge last week.

But instead of exchanging their attacking tactics for a more defensive approach, the Portuguese boss wants his players to continue to create opportunities.

"Defending is a collective organisation - it's nothing about one or more individuals," he said.

"It is to do with collective organisation, and there are collective mistakes we have addressed, I think we went one step up in terms of our collective organisation against Genk and we will just have to try to continue to transfer that into the games and create more goalscoring opportunities and prevent the opponent from creating theirs.

"There is always room for improvement, there must be. We are not satisfied with conceding goals but our most important task is to create more goalscoring opportunities than our opponent and put them in the back of the net because if we do that we are able to win most of the games."

In addition the former Porto manager doesn't feel his side are far away from gaining their first league win since mid-October.

"We have been close enough to winning all the games we have been losing," Villas-Boas added.

"As you cannot change luck, you dedicate yourself to your organisation and that's what we have been doing, trying to get the details right to end our run as soon as possible.

"The sentiment towards what we are doing is good and we believe results will go our way as soon as possible."
