Chelsea will finish fourth, claims football manager Ancelotti

15th February 2011 - Berko Tau

Chelsea football manager Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that his side remains on course to finish in a Champions League spot.

Last night's (February 14th) goalless draw against Fulham appeared to be the final nail in Chelsea' title challenge, leaving the west London club 12 points behind leaders Manchester United.

In addition, the Blues have dropped to fifth place, two points behind Tottenham in the all-important final Champions League spot.

However, football manager Ancelotti is confident Chelsea will secure a place in the Champions League after his players showed some encouraging signs against local rivals Fulham.

He said: "It was a good performance, especially in the second half.

"We put them under a lot of pressure, did not concede opportunities for them to come forward, and we created opportunities."

Chelsea's next game is the FA Cup Fourth Round replay against Everton on Saturday, followed by a Champions League tie away to FC Copenhagen.
