Carlo Ancelotti gave his press conference ahead of tonight's 2nd leg against FC Copenhagen. He spoke of a fully fit squad, confidence and a chance to rotate players for tonight and our showdown with Manchester City on Sunday.

He said:
'I want to rotate in this game, I didn't choose the team for tomorrow but I want to use rotation because we have all the players fit and I want to use all the players to prepare for these two games with Copenhagen and Manchester City.

My best team is not just 11 players. I am happy in this moment because all the players are fit, Alex came back to train today in good condition and is ready for the next game, Benayoun will come back to train maybe Thursday or Friday with the team, so every player is fit and in good condition.

This is a fantastic moment for us to have all the players fit and we want to maintain motivation for everyone, to have all the players fit in the next games of the Premier League and Champions League. Alex will not be involved tomorrow but he will be involved in Sunday's game.

We don't want to speak about the Premier League now. We are in focus to win this game, reach the quarter-finals and await the draw.

I think it is the second half of this round, we did well in the first half and I think we need to pay the same attention in the second half, we don't have to forget that for us it will be very important to move on, to reach the quarter-final of the Champions League.

Copenhagen is a good team with good organisation and I hope that everything will be okay. We used this time to prepare well, stay in focus and to improve our condition and confidence.

In training everything was okay but now we have to check our condition in the game. In the first game we played really well and we needed a high tempo to play against them. We have to stay in focus because they come here and want to do everything to win.'

After the victories against Copenhagen, Man United and Blackpool our confidence is better and we want to keep this and if possible improve.

Our moment is really good and I said after two months we slept; now we are ready to fight for the rest of the season. At the moment it is good. It is the first time we have just one player out for two or three days, all the players are fit and this is very good news.'

You have to say looking at the clubs around us, we seem to be coming out the other side as far as injuries go and our squad is getting stronger and stronger. Having Alex back for City is a major boost with Benayoun also returning at the end of the week.

One thing is for sure, when it comes to the Champions League and if we get through to the draw tonight, not many sides will want to face us looking at our squad.
