Ancelotti insists Chelsea have to keep the belief; ROUND-UP.
Chelsea suffered a shock 1-0 defeat away to struggling Birmingham - their third loss in four in the Premier League.
They now only lead Manchester United on goal difference, have netted once in four games, and they look shaky in defence in the absence of injured skipper John Terry (back).
Ancelotti (right) knows the pressure is on after Chelsea suffered back to back league defeats for the first time since May 2006 courtesy of Lee Bowyer's first-half goal.
But he said: "We have to stay confident and look forward to the next game. It is important to maintain belief in our play, in our quality, in our ability."
Birmingham boss Alex McLeish praised his defence and goalkeeper Ben Foster, saying: "A great rearguard and a great keeper."
