Mancini: Chelsea can't win

MANCHESTER City boss Roberto Mancini believes Napoli will end Chelsea’s Champions League dreams, just as they did to his side.

Chelsea travel to the intimidating surrounds of the Stadio San Paolo tonight with manager Andre Villas-Boas fighting to keep his job after a string of poor results, but Mancini (pictured right) doesn’t give them much of a chance.

“They (Chelsea) have problems, have not won a game for some time and it is clear that they are in trouble,” he said.

“It is true that Napoli are a side who are able to score anywhere, but to go to London with Chelsea obliged to overturn the result of the first leg would give [coach Walter] Mazzarri's team a great advantage.

“At Stamford Bridge, Napoli would be lethal on the counter-attack.”
