Andre Villas-Boas has insisted Chelsea do not need to play Daniel Sturridge at centre-forward to help them arrest their alarming slump.

Sturridge's performances have been one of few positives for the Blues during the nightmare run that has piled the pressure on new manager Villas-Boas in recent weeks. Sturridge is the club's joint top scorer this season on seven goals, despite playing almost exclusively on the right of a three-man attack.

Villas-Boas said: "Our conversation at the beginning of the season was that we saw his potential on the wings - not only myself but also (Fabio) Capello and (former Chelsea manager Carlo) Ancelotti."
