Andre Villas-Boas says the outcome of Chelsea's match with Manchester United on Sunday "won't mean anything."
The 33-year-old believes it is too early for the game at Old Trafford to have any impact on the title race.
"Our importance in the game is minimal. It's for the players to exploit their talents and enjoy their game.
"Any manager who is judged after five games of a season, there's not something wrong with the manager but with the people who run clubs."
