Ancelotti aims to turn things around

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has insisted there are no problems within the squad and eveyone is working as one to put an end to the club's poor run of form.

Wednesday night's shock 1-0 loss at Wolverhampton Wanderers, who were rock bottom of the Premier League table prior to kick-off, left Chelsea nine points adrift of league leaders Manchester United having played a game more.

But as the pressure mounts on Ancelotti as Chelsea's season falls apart, the manager does not yet believe all is lost, and there is every chance that new faces could arrive to strengthen the squad.

In an interview with Chelsea TV, he said: "The players are focused. They are working hard. They are staying together. There are no problems (in the squad) - they have a good spirit. There are a lot of reasons that can explain this moment, but that doesn't matter.

"Now we have to look forward, to the next game. We have to prepare well and we have above all to maintain confidence at this moment. It's very easy now to lose confidence.

"I think that on the training ground everything is okay. The players are working hard. They are angry and they want to move on quickly from this moment.

"I think that to move on quickly from this moment we have stay compact together. Not just the players, not just the manager, not just the staff - also all the people that are involved with this club with emotion with passion can do something to move on quickly from this moment."

Ancelotti revealed there were "some opportunities" for him to bring in reinforcements in the transfer window, but was reluctant to elaborate further.

"Looking for the transfer market there are some opportunities we can do something," he said. "But I think it's private and confidential.

"The line-up (against Wolves) was very good. At this moment we have to stay focused on the details."
