Carlo Ancelotti insists he can handle the long shadow of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

Asked if he might be the manager to consign Mourinho to the history books, Ancelotti laughed: "I don't know any 'Special One' and I don't want to make comparisons with other coaches.

"Of course I know that nobody has lasted a season since he left and we have to change this. I sense a good feeling and think I can do great work here.

"I think that I, Roman and the club have the same objectives - to do very well this season and to win, to have a team that plays good football, creative football and naturally winning football."
