Carlo Ancelotti has insisted he will stay on with Chelsea until at least the summer of 2012.

Reports have suggested that Ancelotti has grown tired of life at Stamford Bridge, despite winning the double last term.

With the club still seemingly reeling from the departure of Ray Wilkins,a poor run of one win in seven league matches has seen the Blues slip down to fourth place.

But he said: 'Will I stay until 2012? At the moment at least until 2012.

'Have I spoken with Roman Abramovich over a new deal? Not yet. Now is the time to reshape Chelsea in the League and I can assure the team is better compared to what it was some time ago.

'What is our problem? Injuries. Replacing Alex, John Terry, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba was not easy. Trouble in the dressing room? I'd say there isn't any and the relationships are good.'

Chelsea face a crucial clash with new Premier League leaders Manchester United on Sunday.

Ancelott feels the performance atTottenham last weekend, where they drew 1-1 and could have won hadDidier Droga scored a late penalty, bodes well for the match.

'In that game I realised that we are alive and we will start winning soon,' he said.

Meanwhile, Ramires has no regrets aboutmoving to the club despite struggling to make an impact.

The Brazilmidfielder, an £18.3million summer signing from Benfica, told Chelsea's website: 'I feel good, I feel better all the time and I think I am more adapted than I was before, and starting to show the football I played at my previous clubs.

'I am working harder and harder to show that I am more at home in England.

'As for life in London, I am settling, I have my family here with me and I am happy, so things are going well and I look forward to fulfilling my contract with Chelsea.'
