Following another bad result at home to Birmingham City in the FA Cup 5th round were all Chelsea could get out of the match was a replay in Birmingham after their dismal 1-1 performance at home.

Chelsea manager AVB walking a tightrope

The future of Portuguese manager Villas-Boas looks uncertain going into their Champions League match against Italian Serie A side Napoli, and an Arsenal like result midweek could leave the young manager out of work.
What we do not know though is how much faith Roman Abramovich puts in AVB, and if he can allow the former Porto manager to build a new team.
This could be a telling week for the Blues.
This is what AVB had to say about the Birmingham match: “It was a quite poor result 1-1 is not what we were expecting but it gives us another chance at Birmingham to continue trying to win the trophy”.
“The aggression was there and the desire and ambition, but I think Birmingham matched us today in that sense.”
When asked about the Napoli game, and his future at Chelsea he replied: “It’s not up to me to decide that, you have to ask that question to the right person.”
