Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti blanked questions over John Terry's dismissal during their 2-1 defeat at Tottenham.

Ancelotti also refused to comment on whether he thought Terry's dismissal, for fouls on Roman Pavlyuchenko and Gareth Bale, was harsh.

"We are disappointed because we have lost John Terry for the next game but I don't have to say anything about the decision," he said.

"Everyone is under pressure at this moment. He is the captain and involved in this exciting race."
