Carlo Ancelotti gone by the end of the season

Chelsea fell to their second defeat in as many games today, as they gave away a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 away to Aston Villa.

It’s fair to say, the honeymoon period is well and truely over for Carlo Ancelotti now following his summer arrival from AC Milan.

Perhaps I’m overreacting, but Chelsea are beginning to look somewhat predictable, a bit like they did under Luis Filipe Scolari at the start of last season.

Poor defending handed Villa all three points today and if I am being honest, you would have to question Ancelotti. Under Guus Hiddink at the back end of last season, Chelsea never threw away a lead and I’m sure many Blues fans would love to have the Dutchman still at the helm.

As soon as Chelsea appointed Ancelotti, I had my doubts. Ok, he did have his fair share of success in Europe with Milan, however he won the Serie A title just once in eight years with the Italian giants.
