UK Premier League title race not over: Ancelotti

London: Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has refused to rule out a Manchester United meltdown in the final four games of the Barclays Premier League season after suffering one himself 11 years ago.

Ancelotti was in charge of Juventus back in 2000 when they appeared certain to win the Serie A title after holding a five-point lead with three matches remaining, but a major collapse saw them famously pipped to the title by Sven-Goran Eriksson``s Lazio on a dramatic last day of the campaign.

According to the Daily Mail, a Chelsea comeback in the current Premier League title race would be even more sensational, with Ancelotti``s men having trailed United by 15 points at one stage.

But a 2-1 victory sparked a run that has now seen them take 22 of the last 24 points on offer.

Ancelotti has insisted anything could happen in the next fortnight.

He said: ``I lost a title nine points up with eight games to go. It can happen.”
