London, Jan 27 (ANI): Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has branded Manchester United a one-man team, unlike his club.

Ancelotti believes United cannot win the Premier League without their 20-goal star striker Wayne Rooney.

Ancelotti, whose team face Birmingham at home tonight, said: "With Didier Drogba not here we have had the chance to put in other strong, fantastic players. We have had Nicolas Anelka and Daniel Sturridge doing very well."

"But without Rooney it would be difficult for United to win the title. He's a very decisive player for Manchester United," The Sun quoted Ancelotti, as saying.

"We have a chance without Didier because we can put Anelka on, another top striker in the world," he said.

"We have to keep pace with Arsenal and United because I believe there will be a sprint finish to the final game," he added. (ANI)
