Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is confident the Blues have turned a corner after their Monday night win over Blackpool.
John Terry opened the scoring before Frank Lampard's brace secured the victory. A late Jason Puncheon striker wasn't enough to dampen the Italian's spirits, and Ancelotti is hoping for more of the same from his veterans.
"Terry's and Lampard's performances were very good, not just because they scored," said the former AC Milan chief.
The Blues remain in a good position in the Champions League ahead of next week's second round tie against Copenhagen, and whilst the Barclays Premier League title might be beyond Chelsea an improved end to the season is essential.
"I think so. Now we have three games where we have played very well, taking good results. I think the moment is gone - finally," responded the Chelsea boss when asked about the club's recent slump in form.
Some of the players have refused to give up on the title though, with Frank Lampard vocal in laying down the gauntlet to current leaders Manchester United.
"We have to believe," Lampard told Sky Sports.
"We have a lot to do but if we go and win every game we will have a great chance to do it, but it will be very difficult. We are still behind but it is nice to be looking up in the table at the top four.
