Carlo Ancelotti knows that three points are absolutely necessary if Chelsea are to take pole position away from Man Utd in the title race, and he is clear that he has no intention of being happy with sharing the points.
Chelsea have already recorded two victories over their rivals this season, but Ancelotti doesn’t think that will have any effect on this game. “We have a very good chance,” he said. “This game will be different. We are playing for the title and psychologically it is different.
“We are fit and confidence has improved after Portsmouth and Aston Villa. It will be a very important game.

“If we can win, it’s better for us. If it ends a draw, that’s not a bad result because we have a lot of games and every one is important. We have lost a lot of points against smaller teams and so have United. Arsenal are still very close. We are not going there for a draw, we go there to win.
“I know it is difficult to win at Old Trafford but it is a fantastic stadium for me also, not only for Sir Alex. I won the Champions League there in 2003 and I have good memories – the best memories of my career. I will always love that stadium.”
Let’s hop that Ancelotti has even more happy memories after tomorrow’s game!
