Gary Cahill insists Chelsea's players are "all behind" Roberto Di Matteo and claims a bust-up at West Brom had been a good thing.
Cahill said the Blues' squad had as much confidence in their manager now as when he masterminded their march to Champions League glory six months ago.
That earned caretaker Di Matteo a permanent contract but he goes into Tuesday's Group E game at Juventus under real pressure after an alarming slump in form, which has seen them lose three of their last seven matches.
Cahill said: "From last year, when he took the job, he did tremendously well and achieved such a lot in a short space of time. We started the campaign really well.
"We're all behind him and he's definitely the right man.
"He proved it last year and I'm sure he will prove it this year as well."
