Chelsea boss Villas-Boas: I know pressure on me now increasing

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas admits their defeat to West Bromwich Albion has left him under huge pressure. Chelsea have now won only three of their last 12 Barclays Premier League games and have slipped three points behind Arsenal in the battle for the final Champions League spot.

Villas-Boas said: "Will this result increase pressure on me? You have to agree with it. We are in the same position, fifth, but we are now three points behind Arsenal.

"It is a big, big disappointment. Every defeat Chelsea suffers piles more pressure on any manager.

"Today is acceptable that pressure piles on a bit more. We have responsibilities to the fans and the club and we did not perform."
