Ancelotti's made us patient and so deadly, insists Ballack

CHELSEA midfielder Michael Ballack believes their ruthless start to the season stems from a fresh approach instilled by new boss Carlo Ancelotti. &nbsp;<br /><br />The Blues have gained maximum points from their opening six Premier League matches, setting a record 11th straight win in the process and bagging 15 goals to boot.<br /><br />The German has excelled under the new management and he feels the team&rsquo;s growing understanding and confidence are the ingredients for their dominant start. <br /><br />The 32-year-old said: &ldquo;Since he has been here we have played very well. Under him we changed the system &ndash; which gives us more possession and makes the game feel a little bit more comfortable even if we don&rsquo;t create one chance after another, because we know the situation will come.<br /><br />&ldquo;That&rsquo;s what he always tells us &ndash; you have to wait for your chance and you can see it now when they come, we are deadly. He gives the team a lot of confidence.&rdquo; <br /><br />Tottenham became the latest team to suffer defeat at the hands of Chelsea in Sunday&rsquo;s London derby and Ballack insists there will be no let-up as his side sit pretty on top of the table.<br /><br />&ldquo;We&rsquo;ve won every game and we want to keep going like this. The team is confident and settled,&rdquo; the former Bayern Munich player added.<br /><br />Ancelotti will look to maintain his 100 per cent record tomorrow in another London derby when QPR travel to Stamford Bridge for the third round of the Carling Cup.<br />
