Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has rubbished claims that he has lost the support of his players.
Recent reports have claimed that some of his players would "rather lose than win" for him but the Portuguese insists that the group is united and ready to bounce back from a very disappointing period.
"It is a question for the players," Mourinho told reporters.
"It is a very sad accusation, you are accusing more than one player of dishonesty. If I accuse you to be a dishonest journalist, you would be very upset and probably would take legal action.
"[My players are still responding to my methods] by giving their best every minute of every training session. By showing solidarity, by fantastic personal and professional relationship.
"Training always in the limits of the quality and the effort and always with the strong desire to win the next game, which is what we are going to try and do tomorrow."
Meanwhile, the 52-year-old has revealed that striker Falcao will be out for weeks.
"Today Falcao picked up an important muscular injury and he will be out for a few weeks," he said.
