Villas-Boas isn't used to losing games. He said: "We only lost four times all season at Porto, in different competitions. But never successive league games. Never. But my confidence has not been affected by the defeats, not at all. As a manager you have to assess the games how you lost.
"Against QPR we did fantastically well with nine men - better than with eleven. Against Arsenal, I thought we would win with the impetus with us when we got to 3-3!"
