    Andre Villas-Boas says he’s delighted with the way our summer arrivals have been integrated into the side as our fixtures continue to come thick and fast.

    Our Head Coach has been able to utilise the full depth of his squad in recent weeks as we’ve kept up our challenge in the Premier League, Europa League and Capital One Cup.

    And ahead of another difficult home game in the top flight against Newcastle United on Sunday, Andre is happy with the way our season is coming together.

    “We’ve had lots of changes,” he said. “We’ve tried to work on the players that have come in with the players that have stayed. Obviously they have to get to know each other, but we think we are gelling quite fast and achieving the results in between which is extremely important for us.

    “We are enjoying one of the best starts this club has ever had. We are really happy with the way that we are going, we look strong and we’ve got one of the best defences in Europe as well.

    “Everything can change very dramatically, but what I would say is that the players are bonding and are playing extremely well for a change of system and for so many new arrivals. I think we are on the right path, and I’m extremely satisfied with the great team spirit that we have.”
