Carlo Ancelotti has said that the conviction and courage will be essential if Chelsea are to defy history to complete a remarkable Champions League return against Manchester United on Tuesday night.
Ancelotti has revealed that plans to produce something special after analyzing the tactics of the first round, won 1-0 against United at Stamford Bridge, but said that the ability of his players to overcome the mental obstacles that await them in Old Trafford ultimately could decide the tie.
The Blues boss urged his players to believe sincerely that could become the first team to beat United in Europe after losing the first inning of a tie at home. Only two clubs have always produced an equivalent change in the Champions League, but Ancelotti insisted there is no reason why Chelsea failed to become the third at Old Trafford.
Ancelotti said. "In Italy we have a saying:" If you have two, three upcoming "We really believe we can win there, maybe it could do that ... But, early in the game, you have to believe he can win.''
Ancelotti knows his side need to produce an almost perfect performance at Old Trafford if they want to reverse the defeat on Wednesday night in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.
"To win there, you have to do 100% in everything,''he said." And not only 100%, but you must use the personality, courage, you have to control the game. ''
It would take a considerable improvement from Chelsea to achieve such a feat. They have won at Old Trafford last season in a game that ultimately decided the Premier League title, but that was during a round of scintillation. Could hardly be a greater contrast this term with the Blues languishing 11 points behind United in the league and the trouble scoring goals. Ancelotti admitted his players not shown enough teamwork today.
"Everyone is trying to solve this problem we have individually,''he said after seeing his side stutter to a 1-0 win at Wigan on Saturday." Obviously, it is best to stay home and work more with them.''
Chelsea Troubleshooting is ultimately responsible for Ancelotti, who is in real danger of monitoring their worst season since Roman Abramovich bought the club. Other directors have been sacked for less, but Ancelotti is convinced today that the Kingdom does not defeat ultimately cost him his job. However, it was determined yesterday to move heaven and earth before the fight of life and death on Tuesday.
Revealing that included a forensic analysis of the first inning, he said .. "I will watch the game in times of one, two or three who want to try to do something special for the next game''
It would not be resorting to tricks of motivation, however.
"I have to watch the game and prepare for something we can do to create problems,''said Ancelotti." I have to explain to players the ability of the opposing team. You can go to the movies without me.''
