Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has played down the significance of a visit by Roman Abramovich to the club's training ground after Wednesday's 2-2 draw against Juventus.
The Blues lost the 2-0 lead given to them by Oscar as the Italians hit back to claim a share of the spoils in the Champions League opener at Stamford Bridge.
According to some reports, Chelsea owner Abramovic went to the Cobham training complex and demanded to know why his Champions League winners had missed out on two points.
But Di Matteo, who steered the Blues to the trophy, won on penalties against Bayern Munich in Germany, said there was nothing out of the ordinary about the Russian billionaire's arrival.
"He comes quite often, to be honest - it's just that it was picked up on this time," the manager explained. "He likes to be involved and comes when he can and is always around when he can be.
"We weren't happy about the result, for sure, so it was not a particularly happy camp on Thursday.
"But it was good he was there. He's the owner, and he likes to know what's going on and speak to people. He does that all the time."
He admitted that being manager of a big club presented its problems, saying: "You are always under pressure to win games in the right manner. That's part of being a big club.
"Now we have to pick ourselves up, go again and win points in the Premier League."
Di Matteo said he was focusing on his job of trying to "prepare the team and the players to do the best for tomorrow's game".
The top of the table Blues take on Stoke at Stamford Bridge, but will be without Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge's hamstring injury means Fernando Torres is the only recognised centre-forward available to the Londoners on Saturday.
"I try not to worry about that - injuries can happen to any players, so I have ideas if anything happens," Di Matteo said. "But we go into the game not thinking about injuries."
And he brushed off suggestions that Chelsea should have signed another out-and-out striker during the transfer window, saying: "I think we signed different kinds of players that can score goals as well.
"Last season, [Juan] Mata scored many goals for us and Eden Hazard scores goals, Oscar scores goals, Lampard scores goals from midfield. So we have goals in the team."
