Ancelotti scoffs at Scolari comparison

Carlo Ancelotti has laughed off Frank Lampard's suggestion that the "end of Scolari's reign was a bit like this" as Chelsea continue to struggle in the Premier League.

Ancelotti: Team spirit is okay

Lampard: We've lost our way
Everton accept Pienaar bid
Milan on standby for Bosingwa
Kalou looks to improve in front of goal

Luiz Felipe Scolari was dismissed as Chelsea boss two years ago as Chelsea slipped to fourth in the table, seven points behind leaders Manchester United, with owner Roman Abramovich said to be concerned the club could fail to qualify for the Champions League.

The current situation is worse: Chelsea are currently in the midst of their worst run for 15 years and have dropped down to fifth in the table, nine points behind United.

Asked about Lampard's remarks, though, Ancelotti joked: "This is not good news! I think the players, the team, lost some confidence in their football, the football that we played very well last year, but I think we are able to come back and play the same.

"I don't know the feeling with Scolari, but the feeling here with the players is very good. Maybe it's the same atmosphere, but we have the capacity to move on.

"We are very close. I support the players at this moment, and the players support me. I think it's not a big problem if the players are not happy, no?

"I think the only reason they are not happy sometimes is that we didn't get the right results. This is the only reason."

Ancelotti said a recent discussion with Abramovich had been "positive" and said: "He knows what the difficulties are, and he hopes - like us - to look forward to try and beat Blackburn tomorrow [Saturday]."

Many believe the reduction in the size of the squad has been a key factor in Chelsea's slump, and it appears likely a new signing will arrive this month.

Ancelotti denied reports of discussions with Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar but reiterated that a reinforcement at centre-back is a possibility.

"We are thinking about central defence," he said. "If we find the right player for us, we have the possibility to buy."

Meanwhile, Nicolas Anelka remains confident Chelsea can retain the title having made up an 13-point gap on the leaders during his time with Arsenal 13 years ago.

"It is going to be tough but anything is possible, even if it is very hard," he told his club's official website. "We have to win every game from now, and maybe we can do it, but to win every game is hard. Most important is to win against the teams that are around and in front of us.

"At Arsenal in 1998, we had belief because, like I said, in football anything is possible, and if you are winning game after game and others are dropping points, it can happen."
