Carlo Ancelotti is looking for his Chelsea players to keep their cool tomorrow as they stand just 90 minutes away from the Premier League title. The London side will clinch their third title in six years if they defeat Wigan at Stamford Bridge, but failure to do so will leave the door open for Manchester United to overtake them if they win their home game with Stoke. Ancelotti is confident his side will not waste the opportunity to be champions. He said: "We are in a very good situation. We wanted to arrive at the end of the season with more points. We have one more, but we can decide our own destiny at our home ground, Stamford Bridge, and that is a good thing.

"We have to play one more game, though, and nothing is decided yet. But we have a great opportunity and a great possibility. "We have to be ready, but we have to play for 90 minutes. We come to play this game, to try our best. They have a very good team and beat us earlier in the season." Wigan beat Chelsea earlier in the season 3-1, and Ancelotti will be without John Obi Mikel, who will also miss the FA Cup final against Portsmouth later this month, because of knee surgery.
