Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says there's similarities between manager Carlo Ancelotti and Inter Milan's Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea are in Milan tonight for their Champions League clash with Inter.

"The thing that is similar in their styles as managers is that they both build a good bond with the team," said Lampard.

"You will always find that if managers get that bond with players they will get the best out of them.

"It is very important that when we work, we work hard and Ancelotti is very strong on that too. When we're off the pitch he's someone you talk to about anything you want and you're not scared of him. Everyone at Chelsea relates to that."
