London, Apr 26 (ANI): Buoyant after Chelsea’s 7-0 rout of Stoke at Stamford Bridge, coach Carlo Ancelotti has asked his players to forget Manchester United because it is all about them in the Premier League.
The win put the Blues back on top by a point and Ancelotti then claimed the rest of the campaign is all about his team.
“The most important thing now is that the title is in our hands. If we win two games, we are champions. I don’t have pressure now. Our destiny is in our hands, so now I am quiet and calm,” The Sun quoted Ancelotti, as saying.
United had knocked Chelsea off top spot by beating Spurs 3-1 on Saturday, a result which left Old Trafford boss Alex Ferguson claiming the pressure was all on Chelsea.
“I walked in the park yesterday while United played. Maybe Sir Alex Ferguson went to see a movie while we played? We don’t need to send a message to the other teams. This is a good message for us,” Ancelotti said.
“We needed a good reaction after the defeat at Tottenham last week and we did that,” he added.
Chelsea’s record win in the top flight also increased their superior goal difference over United to plus eight.
The Blues travel to Liverpool and host Wigan in their final two games, while United visit Sunderland and are at home to Stoke. (ANI)
