Chelsea boss Ancelotti explains hooking Carvalho

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti explained his decision to replace Ricardo Carvalho with Salomon Kalou during yesterday's defeat to Manchester City.

Ancelotti explained his decision to replace Carvalho with Kalou - one that was made when we still had 11 on the field.

"There is no injury, it was a tactical situation, and I wanted to put Ivanovic in the middle and Belletti at right-back," he said. "I want to think that we lost the balance because we were two against one the first goal with Tevez, we stayed two against two in the second goal and lost balance in the situation, not individual mistakes."
