Ancelotti convened a clear-the-air meeting with the players to try to thrash out the reasons for the side's recent dip and the strikers have been undergoing extra shooting practice, but it is not Ancelotti's style to rant and rave.
"I want to maintain a quiet, calm atmosphere," he explained. "I have spoken with the players and everybody is agreed on the same way. We have to move on quickly.
"The dialogue with the players is important. We have to clarify what is the problem together."
It was decided that Chelsea's biggest problem was not playing at a high-enough tempo and now he believes his team can emerge from their current concerns stronger than ever, much as they did after being beaten by Inter Milan in the last 16 of the Champions League last season.
He said: "It was an important experience last year after the defeat against Inter. After that the team was stronger than before that situation and we can do the same."
