Ancelotti plays down entertainers tag at Chelsea

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has played down claims he has his team playing the best football seen at the club in years.

The Italian has been praised for making once-pragmatic Chelsea attractive as well as powerful this season.

"I don't think we are more exciting," said the manager, who preferred Chelsea's penalty at Bolton last weekend to the intricate fourth goal created by Frank Lampard and Deco for Didier Drogba.

"The last goal I wasn't excited about. I was excited about the first goal, the goal which gives us the possibility to win. It was a fantastic action for Drogba's goal, but I'm not excited by this."
