AVB calls for end to Chelsea cliques

Under-fire Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas reportedly called a meeting to bring an end to the divide in the Stamford Bridge dressing room on Thursday.

• Cech defends Villas-Boas
• Chelsea crash to defeat

Villas-Boas claimed responsibility after Chelsea lost 2-1 at Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday - a result that puts their Champions League qualification in jeopardy - and the 34-year-old has now moved to unite the squad by calling an extraordinary team meeting. But the Portuguese is reportedly facing questions of his own from the club regarding the use of £50 million striker Fernando Torres, who has been benched for the last three games.

The Blues have now lost four of their last seven matches in all competitions. Chelsea have subsequently made their worst start to a season in the Roman Abramovich era, leading to speculation that Villas-Boas could be dismissed just a few months after joining from Porto.

Villas-Boas responded to the difficult circumstance at the club, and was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying: "In football you live in the moment, and Chelsea's moment is negative. We have to avert the bad results and get into a dynamic of victory.

"It's not about what I expect, it's about Chelsea's expectations. Chelsea's expectations are titles, and at the moment there is no title to play for. At the moment the negatives are all out exposed, but that doesn't mean we don't have the character to change it."
