Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas  hits back at reports he is leading players revolt against Jose Mourinho.

Reports in the media on Tuesday morning claimed the Spanish midfielder was leading a players revolt at Stamford Bridge.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder was also the subject of speculation at the weekend after a claim from a BBC reporter that one unnamed first-team player would rather lose than win a game for Mourinho.He has scored one goal so far this season, against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League on 16 September.

The Portuguese’s position is under scrutiny after nine losses in 17 games in all competitions this season, but Fabregas backed his boss, who has continually insisted his players are behind him.

But Fabregas took to social media to stress he is “extremely happy” at the club and has an “excellent relationship with the manager”.

Fabregas wrote on Twitter”I would like to clarify that contrary to a few reports from some online websites, I am extremely happy at Chelsea and have an excellent relationship with the manager.

“There may be certain individuals from the outside trying to destabilise this club, but I strongly believe that we will bounce back and come good again.

Chelsea has lost six of their first 11 Premier League matches this season, the latest a 3-1 defeat at home by Liverpool on Saturday that left the Blues 14 points behind leaders Manchester City.

They are third in their Champions’ League group and host Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday before travelling to Stoke in the league on Saturday.

Chelsea’s defence of the League Cup ended at the Britannia Stadium last week when they lost 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Mourinho, 52, said he expected to be given time to turn around the club’s fortunes after the loss to Liverpool.

The 52-year-old was handed a one-match stadium ban and fined 40,000 pounds ($61,640) by the English Football Association (FA) for comments made to the referee during the 2-1 loss to West Ham United on Oct. 24 and is also currently appealing a 50,000 pound fine imposed for criticising referees.

Chelsea takes on Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Wednesday. A defeat would further ratchet up the pressure on the Portuguese, who signed a new four-year contract in August.
