It looks as though Carlo Ancelotti has been using Michael Essien’s infamous calculator, with him making an odd claim about how many points will win the league in England.

“I like statistics and I think that, in the past, with 86 points every team has won the title. I think that we need to get 86 points to win.”

He clearly hasn’t spoken to Rafael Benitez recently, whose team earned 86 points last season but still finished 4 points behind the champions.
