Manager Andre Villas-Boas insisted neither his job nor Chelsea's season hinged on the outcome of the club's Champions League clash with Napoli after his side's shock 1-1 draw with Birmingham in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Villas-Boas' players did nothing to ease the pressure on their manager with a performance on Saturday that almost saw them dumped out of another competition. Chelsea will need to improve immeasurably to avoid crashing out of the Champions League, with only two days to find a solution to their miserable form before the first leg of their last-16 tie.

Asked if the outcome of that match would have any impact on his future, the 34-year-old said: "No, not at all. It's not up to me to decide that. You have to ask that question to the right person."
