Ancelotti prioritises top four spot

04 January 2011 03:30
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti admits a top-four finish and not the title is now his focus in the Barclays Premier League. A poor run of form has seen the champions slip to fifth in the table, six points behind leaders Manchester United, who also have a game in hand. And while Ancelotti is a long way from giving up the title, he concedes a Champions League place is "the most important thing." Ancelotti, who has long-term casualties Alex, Yossi Benayoun and Yuri Zhirkov still unavailable but no new injury problems ahead of the trip to Wolves, said: "There are a lot of teams involved in the first positions. "To stay in the first places of the table is important for the future. "We have to think now we can win the title again, but the most important thing is to stay in the places to be in the Champions League. I am not worried. We have the skill and the ability to stay in the top four without a problem."
