Following on from my match report yesterday after Liverpool completed the double over us, Carlo Ancelotti has spoken to the official Chelsea website after the game he said:
'We are disappointed because we had a great opportunity to close the gap and now there is the same distance, but we have to keep going, we have less possibility to close the gap but we have to try again.

I think the Premier League is very difficult to play every game, so it can happen that Manchester United can lose again. Every team can lose, it is a fantastic league with lots of balance, and now the games are very important for everyone.

We played a fantastic game with this shape at Sunderland and we wanted to repeat it. Liverpool changed their shape, were very strong defensively, put a lot of pressure on in their half and we were not able to find the right solution. I think the right result was a draw because we didn't concede a lot of chances but this is football.

Liverpool played very well today with fantastic power, fantastic strength, fantastic attitude.

The problem was not these players together, they have a lot of quality, I have to try to put them together and I will try to do everything to put them together. They have fantastic quality, their shape was good. Obviously we could play better as a team, not just in front, but when you don't play quick from the back you have difficulty to find space in front.'
I wrote last night that we played far too slow and that's frustrating as we all know how dominant we can be when we move the ball forward quickly. Against Sunderland it wasn't a problem and we played well. For some reason yesterday it never happened and rather than play the ball forward quickly, we were happy to pass backwards or side to side. Let's face it, Liverpool's shape made it hard for us to play and we couldn't come up with anything to counter-act their formation.

I have no argument with losing a game of football, it's when you watch your side play nowhere near their best and look a shadow of themselves, that it hurts the most.
