But May faces dissent from her political opponents - and, more worryingly, her own Conservative Party - over her blueprint for separation and future relations with the bloc.
Mrs May is facing demands to appear before the 1922 committee of Tory backbenchers on Wednesday to explain directly her negotiating strategy, but party chairman Brandon Lewis is now pencilled in to speak. The Sunday Telegraphreported that as many as 46 Tory lawmakers have written letters to Graham Brady, the committee chairman, demanding a leadership contest. That's just two short of the threshold needed to trigger a ballot.
Her comments come in the wake of Brexit minister Dominic Raab insisting that the United Kingdom can only relent on extending the transition period after March 29 as an alternative to the backstop.
Trudy Harrison, the MP for Copeland, was the latest to sign up to the Stand Up 4 Brexit campaign that opposes any future trade deal based on Chequers, which would sign up the United Kingdom to a common rule book for food and goods after Brexit to ensure a free flow of trade across the border in Ireland. Any final deal must respect what people voted for: control of borders, control of laws, control of money, control of trade.
He said time-limiting the backstop would make it redundant.
Earlier on Sunday, the Brexit secretary, Dominic Raab, conceded that Conservative backbenchers had become jittery about the Brexit negotiations but insisted "now is the time to play for the team" as speculation about May's leadership swirled.
"It could be time-limited, there could be another mechanism", Raab said in a BBC TV interview.
The remarks are the first overt signal of flexibility on the matter by May's administration. "On the weekend, we saw increasing concern over political instability in the United Kingdom and the threat of another leadership challenge back on the table", said Lee Hardman, FX strategist at MUFG in London.
In an upbeat assessment, she will try to dispel suggestions talks have stalled after a series of setbacks.
The so-called backstop is a proposal to keep either Northern Ireland or all of Britain in a customs union should future trade talks end in deadlock.
May also came in for criticism from within her own party, where a small but vocal pro-EU movement has been building amid claims the Prime Minister has been pushed to the right in negotiations by hard Brexiteers.
Since then, Mrs May's proposal to extend the transition period has done little to calm anger among eurosceptics in the governing Conservative Party, who fear she is leading Britain into a deal that will make Britain a "vassal state" - unable ever to leave the EU.
He added: 'Everyone in Parliament knows who it is.' Rebel Tory MPs are thought to be on the brink of securing enough support for a leadership challenge over Mrs May's handling of the Brexit negotiations. "Government negotiators have no self-belief".
"Can any United Kingdom leader please three stakeholders, the European Union, the United Kingdom government, and Parliament?" asks Marc Chandler, an analyst with Bannockburn Global Forex. Votes on the bill are due Wednesday in the House of Commons.
Former Brexit Secretary David Davis - who quit the cabinet in July over May's plans - wrote in the Mail on Sunday that "now is the time to stand up for the national interest and plot a better course".
The stability of Prime Minister Theresa May's government is under scrutiny once more.
