After a run of six successive victories to start their Premier League and Champions League campaigns in emphatic fashion, the Blues were knocked out of the Carling Cup following a 4-3 home defeat by Newcastle on 22 September.
Three days later, the west Londoners lost 1-0 at Manchester City, their first league loss since the same opposition beat them at Stamford Bridge on 27 February.
Despite that setback at Eastlands, Ancelotti's men remain top of the Premier League table, three points clear of second-place Manchester United and four points ahead of Arsenal, who are third.
