Chelsea boss Ancelotti: Valencia has successfully replaced Ronaldo at Man Utd

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti doesn't believe Cristiano Ronaldo's departure has hurt Manchester United.

The Blues are five points clear of United at the top of the table and already have beaten their nearest rivals this season.

But on Ronaldo, Ancelotti says: "The numbers do not confirm this. United were two points behind Chelsea before our face-to- face; they have done well in the Champions League. Valencia, his (Ronaldo's) replacement, has great qualities and is starting to click with the well-oiled machine that is United. The only real disappointment (of the season) is Liverpool."
