Chelsea captain John Terry claims the Blues are still in with a chance of retaining their Premier League title.

Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda, Nicolas Anelka and Ramires all scored as Carlo Ancelotti’s men sealed a convincing 4-0 victory at Bolton on Monday to close the gap on leaders Manchester United to seven points having played a game more.

Chelsea are yet to face Sir Alex Ferguson’s men this season and Terry believes a combination of good fortune and positive results against United can blow the title race wide open.

“In the past we’ve never given up,” said Terry. “Manchester United are playing well at the moment and getting the right results, maybe getting a bit of luck too. But things can change and if we can win both games against them we’ll be right back in it.”

Meanwhile, manager Ancelotti believes his side have now “turned the corner” following their difficult spell in the league after leading his side to back-to-back victories – and insists the Blues will still fight for all available silverware this season.

“I think we’ve turned the corner,” said Ancelotti. “We are playing good football with a good attitude and a good mentality. The performance was very good and now I think we are coming back to fight for everything.

“It is not easy to close the gap but we have to try. We are playing well and are in good condition, so we will try to do everything to close the gap.”
