Napoli have confirmed trio Lorenzo Insigne, Vlad Chiriches and Amadou Diawara will be out for the next three weeks with injury - with all potentially missing the Europa League quarter final first leg against Arsenal.
After his hat-trick against Kiev last week, the World Cup victor was asked if he'd be willing to remain as one of Chelsea's rotation players due to his advancing age - to which he gave quite a strong response.
"We saw with his goal what he is capable of".
They've slid down the table to 11th, a long way off the pace for a Europa League position.
"[The draw against Arsenal is] a hard but very fascinating challenge for us, for the club and for our fans", Ancelotti said.
First-choice centre-forward Gonzalo Higuain missed the midweek trip to Kiev due to illness, with back-up Olivier Giroud continuing his fine form in Europe by scoring a hat-trick. "I'm a competitor. I have been through a lot of tough moments in my career".

In 125 games over nine seasons with the Seahawks, Thomas had nine interceptions and three of them returned for a touchdown. The Seahawks also have a history of finding defensive backs that they can mold into strong players in their system.
"If you give someone like Giroud space in the six-yard box that's how good he can be".
Chelsea FC will now take on Slavia Prague for a place in the Europa League semi-finals next month.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek had an excellent game during the week and Sarri was full of praise for the Englishman in his pre-match press conference.
Maurizio Sarri would surely love to win a trophy during his first campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge and his path to the final has now been mapped out.
An all-Spanish affair for the second quarter-final.
"Chelsea are probably one of the favourites and the performance last night proves why".
