Andre Villas-Boas accepts Champions League oblivion beckons if Chelsea are unable to improve on Tuesday night's feeble outing in the Carling Cup.

The Blues' chase for silverware suffered a setback as they exited the cup with a dismal 2-0 defeat by Liverpool, their third loss in four games. Just as worryingly for Villas-Boas, it was also the third time they had succumbed at Stamford Bridge in four matches.

It does not bode well for next Tuesday's critical Champions League showdown with Valencia, when defeat or the failure to keep a clean sheet in west London will result in the unthinkable. "The Champions League is a competition that is life and death and this standard won't be enough," he said.
