Stamford Bridge boss wants to go it alone.
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has dismissed suggestions he needs help at Stamford Bridge.
Former Blues boss Guus Hiddink has been linked with a return to the club after he left his post with Turkey last week.
But Villas-Boas said: “I don’t agree [that I need help.] I don’t solve problems on my own, I solve problems with my group of people and my group of players.
“I just hold on to my self-belief and the belief of my players.”
Chelsea conceded a last-minute goal in Germany in midweek as Bayer Leverkusen inflicted a fourth defeat in the last seven games.
The Blues have been left needing a win against Valencia in their final Champions League group game next week to guarantee qualification and Villas-Boas admits that the pressure is on.
“It’s a situation of life and death in that group,” he said.

Indeed the Valencia game is very much life and death and if Chelsea do not manage to secure progress into the Champions League knock-out stages for the first time in their history then the Portuguese boss may well find himself out of a job.
Guus Hiddink is just one of many names linked with the possibly soon to be vacant Stamford Bridge post and Roman Abramovich may well be weighing up the possibility of just such an appointment if the former FC Porto man doesn’t get the club’s season back on track soon.
