The English champions beat Blackpool 3-1 on Tuesday - their second league win on the bounce after the 2-1 victory over Manchester United.

Previously, Ancelotti's side beat Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League and the Blues boss believes the three wins on the trot mean his team are over their mid-season wobble which saw them drop off the title pace.

He said: "I think so. Now we have three games where we have played very well, taking good results.

"I think the moment is gone - finally."

Lampard brace

While strike partnership Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba failed to score against the Seasiders, a Frank Lampard brace and opener from John Terry secured the win for the Blues to pull them to within nine points of leaders Manchester United, with a game in hand.

Ancelotti added: "Terry's and Lampard's performances were very good, not just because they scored.

"In general the players gave good support to the team and this is important."

The Blues boss also hailed substitute Salomon Kalou, who replaced the injured Drogba in the second period and had a decisive influence on the game, winning the penalty for Lampard's first goal and playing in the England midfielder for his second.

"Kalou made a fantastic impact, he moved very well and that was very important for us," said Ancelotti.
