Chelsea 3-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

AVB Hopes Chelsea Are Up For Challenges Ahead

FC Chelsea closed out the Wolves 3-0 on Sat, Nov 26 at Stamford Bridge with goals from Daniel Sturridge, John Terry and Juan Mata.

After the win, Villas-Boas was in a bullish mood about his side – insisting Chelsea are still capable of clinching the title.

Andre Villas-Boas hopes the clean sheet will kickstart the club’s Barclays Premier League title challenge after recent defeats to Liverpool and Bayer Leverkusen.

AVB is aware of the climb needed with the nine point gap that separates his team from leaders Manchester City.

FC Chelsea clash with FC Liverpool in the Carling Cup quarter-final on Tuesday.

The Blues next tackle Newcastle United and Manchester City in thePremiership league before playing Valencia in a match that will decide whether they make the Champions League knockout stages.

Chelsea had lost four of their previous seven before yesterday’s win v the Wolves.

“This win won’t automatically take us on a winning streak, but we hope it does,” Villas-Boas said.

“We have a big game against Liverpool in the Carling Cup next and this will be enough to give us desire to progress.

“We played with anxiety from the beginning (against Wolves) because of our recent run, but the players got the inspiration they needed to get the result and it was an important win for us.

“It’s natural after the run we have had that self-confidence was a little low, but we got back on track. We are very proud of the team.”

“The clean sheet was important for us,” he added.

“It was important for our pride, for our motivation. At Stamford Bridge we have conceded many in recent games so there is always that stigma from previous results, but I think the boys were solid and confident in defence.”
