Carlo Ancelotti has said that this is not the right moment to start finger pointing over their season demise.
The reigning Premier League champions still have a battle on their hands to qualify for the top four and earn a spot for Europe next season.
The Italian tactician refused to discuss how much blame he should take himself for what has gone wrong and how much should be apportioned elsewhere.
“It’s not the moment to find guilt,” he said ahead of Saturday’s trip to West Brom.
“It’s a moment to stay focused on the next game, do our best, and look to the end of the season.
“We can judge at the end what was wrong and what was good.”
The former AC Milan boss, who insisted he had not lost confidence in his own ability, added: “To speak now about which kind of change the club wants to do for the next season, for new transfers, about my future, it’s not the right time.
“We have seven games until the end of the season and every one of us has to try and do their best in these seven games.
“After that, we can speak about this.”
