Mata insists Chelsea players fully behind Villas-Boas

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata says the players are fully behind manager Andres Villas-Boas.

Mata was happy see his team return to winning ways against Wolves after a difficult run and rubbished talk of a rift between Villas-Boas and the Chelsea squad.

"It's never easy to have such negative results, but we all have a lot of faith in ourselves as a team. We have a lot of faith in our coach and in the quality of the squad," Mata said.

"We had a team meeting last week simply to reiterate that we are all together and that we are heading in the same direction and we showed that against Wolves.

"The group has always been very united, and we have always been sure that the secret in enjoying more success as we go forward, in getting out of this moment, has been to stay strong and stay together."
