Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas intends to use the FA Cup and Champions League to restore his team's confidence.

The Blues' poor form continued as they slipped out of the Barclays Premier League top four after a 2-0 defeat at Everton on Satuday. Chelsea, who surrendered a 3-0 lead to draw with Manchester United last week, have collected just three points from their last four league games.

That run has increased speculation over Villas-Boas' future but he is hoping a switch of focus can revive spirits. Chelsea host Birmingham in the FA Cup fifth round next week before travelling to Napoli. Villas-Boas said: "There are two different competitions now ahead of us and two competitions where we want to show a different quality."
