Chelsea football manager wants more goals

11th April 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Chelsea football manager Carlo Ancelotti has expressed his concern at his side's lack of goals.

The Blues set a new Premier League record by scoring 103 goals on their way to taking the title last season, but after 31 soccer games in this campaign they have netted just 55.

Speaking after his side laboured to a 1-0 win at home to Wigan, football manager Ancelotti said he was unsure why the Blues' scoring touch has deserted them.

"We have more difficulty compared to last season to score a lot of goals. We are not able to convert the chances that we create," he explained.

Ancelotti also moved to defend £50 million signing Fernando Torres, saying that the Spaniard has not had much luck during football games, despite working hard.

"I think we have to continue to have confidence in him. Maybe he will score the most important goals of our season," he added.
