Abramovich backs Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has given him his full support ahead of Sunday's game with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Chelsea have endured a miserable run over the past month, winning only two games in eight matches in all competitions to drop to third in the Premier League. Ancelotti is adamant he is going nowhere despite being rated as 5-1 by bookmakers to get the sack.
