Italian claims to be in the dark over potential Torres transfer

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti remained positive about his side's performance after their 1-1 draw with Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup, but admitted they could have given more.

The London team had to come from behind to scrape a replay back at Stamford Bridge, after a Louis Saha goal put the home side ahead, the visitors requiring a goal from substitute Saloman Kalou to salvage the draw.

The Italian told ESPN: "Everton put us under pressure and played good football and created chances to score, so the result is good. It was not a good game but in general it was a good performance."

Ancelotti also recognised that the Merseyside team play a certain style of football that can often trouble his side and has done during his time at the club.

He added: "Everton have a special kind of football, play a lot of long balls and they like to fight in the box on set-pieces.

"But we showed a good attitude and spirit even though we did not play well.

"We have to look forward now as we have very important games in the future."

Meanwhile, the Chelsea boss was remaining quiet over the possible transfer of Liverpool's Fernando Torres after his side made a bid of around £35 million for the striker.

Ancelotti simply said: " I don't know what will happen, we will have to wait."
