New Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says the depth of competition in the Premiership is far greater than in Serie A.

New Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says the depth of competition in the Premiership is far greater than in Serie A.

He said: "In England the championship is more competitive because, in Italy, three or four teams can win. Here I think that more teams can win the league.

"To win a season in England is not easy for any team. It's not easy for Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United, and also for Arsenal.

"To win here is very difficult. It's a difficult start tomorrow. We'll have to overcome difficulties in every game.

"We have to work to improve because the situation on the pitch has to be natural. Now it's not natural because some things are new for the players.

"But, with work, it will become automatic. We have to put continuity into the games. That wasn't the case in the last game - some periods of the game were very good, others not. We need to put continuity on the pitch."
