Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has denied media allegations he is organising a dressing room revolt against manager Jose Mourinho.
‘The Secret Footballer’ blog claimed he was the “leader” of a “mini-revolt” at the Premier League champions.
Chelsea are 15th in the league table.
“I would like to clarify that contrary to a few reports from some websites, I am extremely happy at Chelsea and have an excellent relationship with the manager,” Fabregas said on Twitter.
“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,” added the 28-year-old Spain international.
Chelsea have lost six of their first 11 matches in defence of their Premier League title, the latest a 3-1 home defeat by Liverpool on Saturday that left the Blues 14 points behind leaders Manchester City.
They are third in their Champions League group and play Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge today.
Mourinho, 52, said he expected to be given time to turn around the club’s fortunes after the loss to Liverpool.
The Portuguese was given a one-match stadium ban on Monday and fined £40,000 by the Football Association after admitting a misconduct charge over his behaviour in the defeat by West Ham on October 24.
