Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti insists he does not fear for his job following another disappointing result.
The reigning Premier League champions have surrendered top spot in the table following a dismal run of one win in six games, and their struggle continued in the Champions League on Wednesday night when Ancelotti’s men, already assured of a place in the knockout stage, suffered a 1-0 reverse at Marseille.
It will not get any easier for Chelsea as they look to turn their fortunes around against Tottenham this weekend, but Ancelotti insists he is not worried about being sacked if things do not improve quickly.
The Italian said: “Everyone now thinks we will be beaten in our next game. I picked my strongest team against Marseille because we are in a bad moment and this was a chance to change that.
“But we missed this opportunity because we didn’t win and we didn’t play well, so the bad moment continues.
“Now we have a very difficult game against a very good Tottenham team and we all have to stay strong and focused.
“I am not worried about my position, just by the fact that we are not doing our best. We have to do better to move on from this moment quickly.”
