Chelsea ready for Man U, says Ancelotti


Chelsea, two points ahead of the champions at the top of the table, have scored 19 goals and conceded only two in their last five games, both of those by Sergio Aguero — a possible Chelsea transfer target — in Wednesday’s 2-2 Champions League draw at Atletico Madrid.

The club received a boost on Friday with news that they had been cleared to sign new players in the January transfer window after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) suspended a ban imposed by world body FIFA who found them guilty of inducing young Lens striker Gael Kakuta to break his contract.

But Ancelotti hinted after Friday’s training that the club would only spend if his squad suffered significant injury.

After trotting out the usual cliches that the Manchester United match involved only three points like any other, Ancelotti said: “We are happy to play this game at this moment because we are playing very well, we are in good condition and we have a very good mental attitude just now.”
