The Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has warned Arsenal that Aston Villa could be a danger to their place in the top three in the Premiership, and thinks that the Midlands side has got such a great record against the top clubs this season that they could even challenge for the title!
“Aston Villa are a very dangerous team,” said Ancelotti. “They won against Chelsea and Manchester United. I think Martin O’Neill is doing a fantastic job with this team. Maybe we have to pay attention to them because nobody spoke about Aston Villa in the top four but now we have to pay attention to this team. I think Arsenal have to pay attention to them.”
Aston Villa shocked Chelsea by beating them at Villa Park, but last weekend caused an even bigger shock by winning at Old Trafford. After last nights win against Sunderland they have now moved into third place for the time being, just five points behind Chelsea and Manchester United.
As Arsenal could leapfrog Villa into third place with a win tonight, just three points behind United with a game in hand, maybe Chelsea and United should start watching out for Arsenal!
