Jose Bosingwa envisages Chelsea will enjoy a successful climax to the 2008/09 campaign.
The Blues remain in the hunt for Premier League and UEFA Champions League glory and are desperate to avoid ending a second consecutive season empty-handed.
Sitting four points behind league leaders Manchester United, albeit having played a game more than their rivals, the Blues appear well placed to launch a title tilt.
They have also progressed safely through to the quarter-finals of Europe's premier club competition and will be looking to go one better than last season's runners-up spot.
Bosingwa is confident Chelsea will get their hands on at least one piece of silverware this term, with the Portuguese full-back believing the club have found form at just the right time.
"After recent results, the spirit in the squad has risen and we are playing much better," he told the Portuguese media.
"The mentality of the squad has changed and that is partially due to the arrival of (Guus) Hiddink.
"We now use a different system and have improved as an attacking force.
"The return of (Didier) Drogba to top form is also crucial for us. I think he is very happy at the moment and that is positive for us. He is one of the best strikers in Europe and his quality is unquestionable."
Bosingwa admits the club's disappointing start to the season under former boss Luiz Felipe Scolari affected team morale, but is confident Hiddink can bring the good times back to Stamford Bridge.
"Although it was sad, what happened under Scolari, that is all in the past now," he added.
"Our only interest now is to play well for Hiddink and to do our best in all competitions.
"A club like Chelsea is built to compete at the latter stages of competitions like the Champions League."
