Villas-Boas admits he feels under far less pressure at Spurs, who currently sit one place above the Blues in the Barclays Premier League.
"I was booed. It's a consequence of the demands of the job," Villas-Boas said.
"Chelsea is a high-profile club where media attention is high and everything is scrutinised and it's a different type of environment.
"This is a high-profile club but with different circumstances, different players, and different objectives and not so much media attention.
"Through the years Chelsea have had eight or nine managers.
"This club has found a little bit more stability in management recently."
