Carlo Ancelotti has given his press conference today ahead of our trip to Blackpool on Monday night and has revealed that two of our players have slight knocks and could miss the game, David Luiz and Mikel. He said:
'After the game we had a problem with David Luiz. Until now he was not able to train, Obviously I hope he will train tomorrow, and with Mikel, he had a little problem on his knee in the warm-up before the game. He had a scan yesterday and everything was okay, so I hope also he can train tomorrow.

Benayoun is starting to train on the grass outside alone, and it is difficult to say when he will be fit. Alex will come back next week and after that, I think Friday, when he comes back we will check him and take a decision. I think Alex is very close to recovery. Not for Copenhagen, but we hope for the next game in the Champions League he will be fit.

(Speaking of the win over United) It was an important victory for us because I think that we repeated a very good performance against Copenhagen, It was an important check, the team is living a good moment and we want to maintain this in the next game.

It was an important performance because we were 1-0 down and able to maintain composure, we were better in the second half and in the end I think we deserved to win, against in my opinion a fantastic team that deserves to be top of the table in this moment.

Blackpool had fantastic performances in their home games, they beat Tottenham in their last home game, they were 2-0 up against Manchester United and are a team that like to play football with intensity and pace, attacking football. It will not be an easy game, our moment is good and we want to maintain continuity with a result.

In theory we can have more chance than Blackpool because we have more ability, better individuals, but they are a very good team, I saw them play very good football and I like the philosophy they use on the pitch. We will have to pay attention because it will not be easy.

Our aim is not to reach the top of the table because it is too far. In this moment it is not but in the future we don't know. We have to stay in focus on our games and not think we can reach Man United because the title is in the hands of Man United. If they miss some games, I think we can have some possibility to think but in this moment we cannot.'
