London, Sep 25(ANI): Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti reckons that he has a much easier job than his big-spending Manchester City counterpart Roberto Mancini.

Mancini has spent a staggering 132.5 million pounds on seven new players this season.

“I am happy that I don’t have those difficulties. I prefer to have a team that is ready to play. Last season was fantastic for Chelsea so I was able to maintain the same squad and work with the same players,” The Sun quoted Ancelotti, as saying ahead of the their clash at Eastlands on Saturday.

“If you are always changing nine or 10 players every year then it’s difficult. City didn’t start so well in the Premier League, but they still have the possibility to challenge us for the title,” he added.

City was the only side to beat Chelsea home and away in Premier League last season, beating them 2-1 at Eastlands and 4-2 at Stamford Bridge. (ANI)
