Chelsea boss confident of top four finish

The Blues failed to secure a win against Fulham on Monday and they were lucky not to lose the game as Petr Cech saved a stoppage-time penalty by Fulham’s Clint Dempsey.

“The most important thing is to finish in the top four,” said Ancelotti.

“I think we will be able to do this if we play like we did tonight.

“I’m an optimist and there’s good reason to have confidence.

“The football we showed tonight was good, and we have to continue it.”

He added: “I think that we deserved to win this game. We could lose it, but Petr Cech saved a penalty with a fantastic save.

“It was a good performance, especially in the second half.

“We put them under a lot of pressure, did not concede opportunities for them to come forward, and we created opportunities.”
