Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that John Terry 'lost control' after being sent off in their weekend defeat at Tottenham.[LNB] Not only did Terry concede Spurs' opening penalty, he then proceeded to earn himself an early bath in the second half.[LNB]Two fouls in quick succession left Chelsea man light for the rest of the game and he will now miss their home game with Stoke due to suspension.[LNB]Terry has been one of Chelsea's leading lights this season, but Italian boss Ancelotti has conceded that the England international was below par at White Hart Lane.[LNB]"I was a player and you know sometimes you are not always rational, you sometimes lose your control," said Ancelotti. "He has had a fantastic season.[LNB]"Maybe sometimes he had some problems and didn't play so well, maybe against Spurs he didn't play too well."[LNB]The defeat allowed Manchester United to close within a point of the league leaders and Ancelotti now wants everyone to try and remain calm despite the added pressure.[LNB]"Now we have to win the next game and if possible the next three games - then we are the champions," he continued.[LNB]"Tottenham played better than us, it can happen, but it's a time to stay calm."
