England: Chelsea in Crisis

Daniel Sturridge has insisted Chelsea are not a "divided unit" under Andre Villas-Boas. Villas-Boas last week admitted his "project" was not backed by all of his players after reports emerged he was openly challenged by some of them during a training-ground summit eight days ago. However, Sturridge claims Chelsea are "a family" and will prove it during what could be a season-defining fortnight. "We are all together as one and we are not a divided unit," he told Chelsea TV. "We are a family and we've got a good unit going here and I think maybe we will see that in the next few games." Chelsea are currently on course for their worst season since Roman Abramovich bought the club and need a positive result in Tuesday night's Champions League last-16 first leg at Napoli to ease the pressure on Villas-Boas.
