Man Utd's Ronaldo: I'm ready for Chelsea battle

Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo has told Sir Alex Ferguson he's primed for Sunday's trip to Chelsea. And the Portuguese winger insists he'll take any extra attention from Chelsea defenders ready to test his ankle: "I know that the attempts to intimidate me on the pitch will start again immediately - but everyone finds sooner or later that it is difficult to make me lose my rag.

"I'll be booted again but I will not kick out when it happens. I'm tough and, again, it's all just part of the spectacle.

"I'll do my damage as usual by paying them all back with my goals."

United have only won once in six games this season - but Ronaldo is refusing to press the panic button.

He said: "There's no problem at all with our form. Last year we started like this, look how we ended up!"
