Ancelotti coy on title chances

Chelsea head coach Carlo Ancelotti has played down talk of the Premier League being a two-horse race between his own club and Manchester United.

Some pundits have suggested that the pair will battle it out for silverware in the coming months, but the Italian is a little more cautious.

Ancelotti said:"A lot of teams will be involved in the fight for the title.

"I think the last results, the result of Manchester City above all, show they have an opportunity to return to the top four.

"I don't want to forget Arsenal, I don't want to forget Manchester City or any other teams. I don't know if Arsenal, Aston Villa, Tottenham or Liverpool can fight for the title, but I know that to play against them is not easy.

"It's a very competitive championship, this. Staying at the top of the list, for us, for six months is a very good situation.

"We did a very good job in these six months to maintain this first place in the league."
