Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has insisted he will not sign players in the January transfer window and has rejected reports that he will off-load a host of his failing stars.

Widespread reports had suggested Mourinho had asked Chelsea officials for time to oust the players who have failed to perform as the champions have failed to perform this season, yet the Blues boss insisted he had no such plans as he met the media.

Mourinho also stressed that he had the full backing of his board, as Chelsea look to bounce back from a shocking run that has seen them lose seven of their first 12 Premier League games this season.
