Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti believes the huddle at the end of the win over Fulham could prove to be a turning point for the season at Stamford Bridge.

Ancelotti's men came from a goal behind to win in their last game and turned half-time jeers into an end-of-year celebration, with Didier Drogba leading a team meeting on the pitch at the final whistle.

"The huddle was an important moment for the team. It's the first time that they have done this," Ancelotti said. "I don't know what they spoke about in that meeting but it was a very good thing to have. They showed that they are a very good team."

Next for Chelsea is the FA Cup clash against Watford on Sunday, with Ancelotti preparing to pick a strong team after being told how important the competition is.

"The first thing that the club said to me is that the FA Cup is not the Italian Cup," he said. "That was one of the first things they said to me.

"The club want to win this competition, just like the Premier League or the Champions League. It's the same. We want to do the best."
