Ancelotti: Aston Villa ‘Very Dangerous’, Arsenal, United and Chelsea must respect them

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has branded Aston Villa as a “very dangerous” team that could break the domination of the so-called ‘big four’ this season.

Villa trumped Sunderland 2-0 at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday, but not before toppling three of the big boys, as they have registered victories against Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool so far.

Presently, Ancelotti has warned his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger to take the Villans seriously when the Gunners host Martin O’Neill’s charges at the end of the month.

“Aston Villa are a very dangerous team,” Ancelotti is quoted by the Press Association as saying.

“They won against Chelsea and Manchester United. I think Martin O’Neill is doing a fantastic job with this team.

“Maybe we have to pay attention to them because nobody spoke about Aston Villa in the top four but now we have to pay attention to this team.

“I think Arsenal have to pay attention to them.”
