Villas-Boas keeps believing

Andre Villas-Boas is confident Roman Abramovich remains fully behind his Chelsea revolution despite the club crashing to their fourth defeat already this season.

Blues boss Villas-Boas claimed billionaire owner Abramovich would not have paid a world record £13million to prise him from Porto this summer, only to sack him at the first sign of trouble. Abramovich's patience was tested once again as Chelsea lost 2-1 to Liverpool to remain 12 points behind Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City.

But Villas-Boas said: "It's not a question of the owner having patience. We have set out to build something new at this club and the club is committed to taking what we're building to the future. The owner didn't pay 15million euros to get me out of Porto to pay me another fortune to get out."
