Former Chelsea and AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti has given his tip for the new season.

Ancelotti feels AC Milan are favourites to successfully defend their Scudetto crown.

He explained: "I think Milan are still the favourites for the Scudetto. When you win, it brings a special enthusiasm to the locker room.

"I'd say Milan are a step above the rest, who in this order are Roma, Juventus, Napoli, Lazio and Inter."

Juventus inaugurated their new stadium this week, the first club-owned arena in Serie A.

"It is a masterpiece and I'd love it to act as an example for other clubs. Being on the bench surrounded by your fans is a wonderful thing and ought to be the norm."
