The Blues have kicked off the season in imperious form and Ancelotti admits the Champions League is a burning ambition at the club.
"Chelsea have never won this trophy, so we have a special eye for this competition, especially as last season we went out too soon.
"Chelsea have always gone very close and this season the team has the right maturity to win the Champions League. I hope we're not at our peak after the 4-1 over Zilina, as we can still do a lot better.
"It's true the season started well, the team knows what it has to do and that comes from a year's work."
