The Blues secured an emphatic 4-0 win at Stamford Bridge thanks to goals from Salomon Kalou, Florent Malouda, Deco and Didier Drogba.

The victory follows impressive displays against Atletico Madrid and Blackburn Rovers and Ancelotti hopes his troops can maintain their form.

The former AC Milan boss hoped Chelsea would be playing good football before his arrival and believes his dream is coming true.

Quality"We played well over the 90 minutes. We had good control of the game and we played with quality," he told Sky Sports.

"We're happy because it's a good time for us. We want to maintain this form in the coming games. It's a good moment.

"My dream at the start of the season was to field a team that plays good football and gives enjoyment to the fans."

Chelsea made wholesale changes from their weekend win over Blackburn and Ancelotti was pleased with his replacements.

The likes of Paulo Ferreira, Alex and Daniel Sturridge were all drafted in and the Italian felt they contributed.

Ancelotti refused to be critical of Sturridge's inability to score on his full debut, stating he was happy with his work rate.

"The players who returned after injury came back very well. Joe Cole came back in the last match and did very well," he continued.

Intelligent"Alex and Paulo Ferreira did a very intelligent match tonight. It's a very good moment. We have to continue and maintain this atmosphere.

"As for Sturridge, I'm disappointed for him. I think he played 60 minutes well for the team. I asked him to play for the team, not just to score. He did what I asked of him.

"For me, it's not important that he didn't score. The others - Malouda, Kalou - did. For him it would have been better to score, but I'm happy with his work out on the pitch."
