Jose Mourinho says club owner Roman Abramovich wants to keep him as Chelsea manager despite recent reports claiming that he is close to be sacked.
The Blues are 16th in the Premier League ahead of today's home game against Norwich City.
But the Portuguese says the group is united and there is trust in all the elements of his squad.
"Nobody gives a four-year contract to a manager if they don't trust the person," Mourinho told reporters.
"Nobody gives new contracts to players, as we have in the last couple of months, if we don't trust the players.
"There is trust and there are reasons for that trust. The power is with the board and they have shown to me and the players that they trust us.
"It's time for us to give a positive answer. I think we are doing this but not in the results."
