Carlo Ancelotti believes Chelsea’s alarming slump was behind them, despite watching Didier Drogba blow the chance to send them back to the top of the Premier League.

He said: ”I think that we deserved to win; we were very close to winning. We missed a penalty but it doesn’t matter. I think that we played well and I think that our bad moment is behind us.”

Ancelotti also insisted it ”doesn’t matter” that the weekend’s results had seen his side slip to fourth.

He added: ”It would be a problem if you are in fourth at the end of the season.”

Ancelotti said: ”We showed good confidence, we showed good football, we didn’t lose confidence after the first half. There was a good reaction.

”We wanted to play more defensively and use the counter attack but, after Tottenham scored, we played differently and second half was really better.

”We put more strain, more pressure, more determination and the performance was good.”

Drogba had been controversially left out of the starting line-up and Ancelotti revealed his star striker was far from happy with the decision.

”He was not happy obviously but he showed a good reaction in the second half,” he said. ”He played a fantastic game and was very important for us.”
