Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has insisted owner Roman Abramovich had not given him a deadline to turn the club's season around, despite facing four defining games in the next fortnight.

The beleaguered Blues host Wolves knowing anything other than victory could see them slump to seventh in the Barclays Premier League by the end of the weekend. Chelsea then welcome Liverpool in the Carling Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday night before facing Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday week.

Lastly, and arguably most crucially, comes their final Champions League Group E match against Valencia the following Tuesday, which they must win or draw 0-0 to avoid crashing out of the competition. Villas-Boas was unequivocal, however, saying: "I didn't come here to be failure. I came here to be a success."
