Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti was delighted to be back to winning ways with their 5-0 thumping of Portsmouth.

Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda both netted doubles for the Blues.

"We needed to have this performance," Ancelotti acknowledged. "We needed to win, we did this and I hope the bad moment is finished. We have to wait until Saturday [against Aston Villa] because that is a very important test for us. If this test can be passed, this moment is finished.

"We were lucky for the first goal," he accepted, "but before that we had some opportunities to score.

'It was unlucky for James, the bounce of the ball was not good but after that we played well. We maintained the tempo of the game for 90 minutes. This is good for us now, to improve our confidence, because in the last few weeks we have lost confidence in our play and we came back to play good football."
