Villas-Boas gets Ancelotti scare

Andre Villas-Boas must have been concerned about his job security when he caught a glimpse at the team-sheet for Chelsea's midweek Carling Cup tie against Fulham.

Written between the team lists and referee was Carlo Ancelotti's name pencilled in under the 'manager' title. Perhaps the Chelsea's administrators have been struggling to keep up with the comings and goings in the Stamford Bridge hotseat, but luckily for Villa-Boas they squeezed through on penalties to boost the Portuguese's chances of not following in Ancelotti's footsteps.
