Chelsea FC – FA Cup Update

AVB, Chelsea FC Manager

FA Cup Results – February 18-19 2012

Chelsea FC earned a draw against Birmingham, Liverpool whalloped Brighton 6-1, and Arsenal lost to Sunderland as the FA Cup moves into the sixth round.

AVB says Roman Abramovich’s support remains “unconditional”.

Chelsea face Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday before the return leg three weeks later in west London.

Asked if he believed that whatever happens in the last-16 tie he will still be head coach, the 34-year-old said: “Yeah. But it’s not up to me to decide that – you have to ask that question to the right person.”

“Bearing in mind the quality of the Napoli side we’ll think of that game now, focus our heads on the Champions League tie that is extremely important and hopefully do well or do much, much better. I think we are ready for any challenge, to be fair.”

“No the situation at the moment is that we don’t have enough good results. But we are still in all of these competitions so we will continue to push for them.”

Asked if Chelsea’s season hinged on beating Napoli on Tuesday, Villas-Boas said: “No, because Napoli is the first leg of that tie and we will have to wait for the second leg at Stamford Bridge. Regarding the FA Cup we have to wait for the replay.”

”I think we have a possibility. Yes, Napoli are a strong team but we are a strong team.”

When asked to comment on the Premier League, AVB repliled, “It’s important to finish fourth at least,” he said.

“Third place is 10 points away, we play the third-placed team at home. The rest of the teams from fourth to seventh are competing for that spot. We will continue to push on to try to get it.”
