Desire to end the season at Wembley in the final of this competition is high in the Chelsea camp.
"Every one of us has this motivation," Ancelotti confirmed after victory over Spartak Moscow. "There are a lot of things, there is the final in London, no London team won the Champions League, all these things can improve our motivation.
"I am not English but I am working for Chelsea and I have a particular sensation and feeling for this club, so when there is a final there is extra motivation for everyone, not just for [the English players].
"There is not a pressure, the Champions League is one of the best competitions in the world, we are here to enjoy it. We are doing well and it is a long race to play the final.
"The first aim is to win the group, the next aim the next aim is to arrive in the final and the third aim is to win the final. Now we have to arrive in first place and t he next step is to arrive in the final. We have the possibility, we have motivation, strength, power, but sometimes you have to be lucky also."
