Ancelotti admitted that his team just fell short of what was needed to take the title race into the final laps of the season. “They played better than us and deserved to win," he said. “It was a strange game, conceding a goal after a minute - we tried to do things differently using more power but it was difficult. “We needed to win here. When 2-0 down it was difficult. “I was not angry with Luiz [at fault for the first goal] but I wanted to use a substitution. This game was important to use to fight for the title. “But I want to say thank you to them for the past two months.” Ancelotti then heaped praise on United and boss Sir Alex Ferguson: “Sir Alex is a fantastic coach and man. he does a fantastic job at Man United. “But United have a fantastic strikers and scored at the first opportunity. “United just need a point – we have another two games to fight for second place in the league. “Today, United were superior – and also in the Champions League. “In general they showed more continuity playing good football. “Chelsea did not do its best – last year was a fantastic season this season less so. "Now is not the right time to think about new players for next season - this is a good squad."
