Blues can turn it around - Ancelotti

BY foxsports • February 25, 2010

Carlo Ancelotti is confident Chelsea can make the Champions League quarter-finals despite going down 2-1 at Inter Milan in the first leg.

The Blues found the net through Salomon Kalou, but goals from Diego Milito and Esteban Cambiasso gave their old boss Jose Mourinho the victory in the first leg clash.

However Ancelotti saw enough from the match to be confident for the return leg at Stamford Bridge.

"I think that what we saw tonight, we have the chance to turn it around," said the Blues boss.

"I think we played well. We leave without a positive result, but it's not an ugly one either.

"We will play to attack and win the second leg in the same way we did in this game.

"We tried to attack and score from the first to the last minute."

Petr Cech is unlikely to be involved in the second leg after being carried off on a stretcher after an hour's play, but Ancelotti alleviated the initial fears that he had torn knee ligaments by revealing the goalkeeper has damaged his calf.

"We have to wait and control his condition over the next few days," he said.

"He has an injury on his calf. We cannot say now when he will return to the squad."
