Ancelotti puts faith in attack

Published Add your comment

Carlo Ancelotti insists that Chelsea's brand of attacking football can sweep them to the Barclays Premier League title.

Chelsea go to Manchester United next weekend brimming with confidence after destroying Aston Villa 7-1 at Stamford Bridge. Four goals from Frank Lampard, two from Florent Malouda and another from substitute Salomon Kalou, gave Chelsea their second seven-goal haul of the season at Stamford Bridge.

"When we play our best attacking football, we are able to overcome any defence," said Ancelotti.

"It is important that we play our best football until the end of the season in the Premier League and the FA Cup.

"We can make this a fantastic season if we finish in the right way."

Since Chelsea's defeat by Inter in Europe and their disappointing 1-1 draw at Blackburn last Sunday, the Blues have swept aside Portsmouth 5-0 at Fratton Park and Villa, their FA Cup semi-final opponents, 7-1.

Chelsea have switched back to a more familiar 4-3-3 formation and the change has given them renewed belief they can win the title with goals galore.

"We always want to play attacking football and this is how we started on Wednesday against Portsmouth, with an attacking team, which is why we are now the top scoring team in the Premier League," Ancelotti added.

"I think we have shown that we have the mentality to recover well and the players performed how I would have liked us to."
