Olivier Giroud insists Antonio Conte has the full backing of the Chelsea squad despite back-to-back defeats against Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Blues lost further ground in the race for the top four after a 1-0 defeat to City at the Etihad on Sunday, leaving them five points off Spurs in fifth.
The defeat means Chelsea have lost four of their last five Premier League matches and they host Crystal Palace before a daunting trip to Barcelona in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie next week.
Giroud was thrown on as a late substitute against City and the Frenchman, recently signed from Arsenal, insists.
‘It is not a crisis.We played United & City away,’ said Giroud.
‘Obviously, we could have done better but these are not small games.We are not happy with that.
‘It is not the day and the moment to question whether we are behind the boss or not. Obviously we are behind him and together.’
The speculation over Conte’s future has intensified over recent weeks and Italy are keen on hiring him again as their national coach.
The Italian has 15 months to run on his existing deal having signed fresh terms with the club after last season’s title-winning campaign.
