Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti laughed off suggestions from Roberto Mancini that the Blues have already won the title as they prepare to face his Manchester City side at Eastlands.Chelsea sit four points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League with five straight wins over West Brom, Wigan, Stoke, West Ham and newly-promoted Blackpool.The Blues opened the season with successive 6-0 wins over West Brom and Wigan and Mancini has since hinted that, as far as he was concerned, it is Chelsea's title to lose.However, Ancelotti would not be drawn into playing any kind of mind games with his former national team-mate."I agree with him," said Ancelotti. "It's not a mind game, I know him very well and so he knows us very well. He knows our ability. You have to build a mentality of a team. He doesn't have an easy job, he is doing his best. I hope the club appreciate it."He's very competitive manager because he has experience, he has ability to read the game. It's a very good relationship, we were team-mates in the national team in the past. I met him two months ago in Manchester, the relationship is very good."
