Didier Drogba believes everything is steadily falling into place for Andre Villas-Boas at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea boss has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks after a run of poor results have seen the Blues fall off the pace both domestically and Europe.

However, Villas-Boas saw his side impressively dispatch of Newcastle at St James Park on Saturday, as Chelsea ran out 3-0 winners over Alan Pardew's side.

But, are far more important clash awaits the 34-year-old on Tuesday as Chelsea take on Valencia for a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

A win or a goalless draw will be enough for the west London club to progress, but defeat may reportedly even cost Villas-Boas his job.

Drogba, though, is confident in his manager, and says he deserves time at the helm in order to further prove his credentials.

"Everything is now coming together for the manager," said the veteran striker.

"You have to remember it is his first season in the Premier League, so it's not easy for him - and it isn't easy for the players or the club.

"Yes, we have been in a difficult moment - we have been struggling.

"But you have to stick together and make sure when we are on the pitch, we are all pulling in the same direction. That's what we are doing right now and it's great to see. We will have bad moments but if we stay together, the good things will come along.

"The manager can deal with any pressure. You don't rise to his level in coaching if you are not a strong personality."
