Daniel Sturridge has insisted Chelsea are not a "divided unit" under Andre Villas-Boas.
Blues boss Villas-Boas last week admitted his "project" was not backed by all his players after reports he was openly challenged by some of them during a training-ground summit. But despite being unhappy with his lack of opportunities in a central striking role, Sturridge claims Chelsea are "a family" and will prove it during what could be a season-defining fortnight.
"We are all together as one and we are not a divided unit," the 22-year-old told Chelsea TV.
