Chelsea forward Didier Drogba has backed manager Andre Villas-Boas to turn around the club's fortunes.
Drogba scored the opening goal as the Blues ended a bad run of results with a convincing 3-0 win at Newcastle United on Saturday.
Chelsea had lost three of their previous four matches but ended up convincing winners at the Sports Direct Arena.
"If you stick together the good things will come"
- Didier Drogba
And the 33-year-old Drogba pledged his full support to Villas-Boas, who is in his first season in charge.
"It is a difficult moment and we have to stick together," he said. "We all have bad moments but if you stick together the good things will come.
"He [Villas-Boas] can deal with it. You don't arrive to the level he has if you are not strong. Time will give him results, time will give him answers."
Chelsea face a crucial Champions League match against Valencia on Tuesday before hosting Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City next Monday.
