Brussels, Oct 31: Chelsea is set find out whether two consecutive domestic losses are the start of a slump or merely an aberration when it plays at Racing Genk in the Champions League on Tuesday.


A win would put Chelsea back on track and ensure the two Premier League defeats, including Saturday's 5-3 home loss against Arsenal, are not necessarily a fundamental issue for new manager Andre Villas-Boas.

A third straight loss, however, would undermine the team's lead in Group E of the Champions League and could be the start of a crisis at one of Europe's leading clubs.

Backed up by a 5-0 home win over Genk on Oct. 19, Villas-Boas refuses to be flustered.

He says “in the Champions League the scenario is another one.”
