How the draw for the Europa League quarter-finals panned out

Chelsea news Maurizio Sarri reveals real reason Gonzalo Higuain missed Dynamo Kiev win Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain has been struggling with a stomach ache

"I think that's where they get a lot of their goals and of course the first two he scored, dare I say tap ins, he was in the right position at the right time and then obviously the header was exceptional".

After 30 games (Chelsea with one in hand), Arsenal have gone within one point of north London rivals Spurs, 61 to 60 points in the English top tier separating third and fourth.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Napoli, Valencia CF, Slavia Prague, Eintracht Frankfurt, Villarreal and Benfica were the eight teams involved in the draw for the last-eights of the Europa League this season after progressing from the Round of 16. "It would be hard to play them with my history with the club".

With the draw for the Champions League having just taken place, we look ahead to the draw for the Europa League. "I am really very happy for him and for the hat-trick, and I am really very happy with him".

"So, for me, it will be very hard to play against them in Naples".

Olivier Giroud has warned he is not prepared to settle for a back-up role at Chelsea and the 32-year-old striker insists his fitness records remain among the best at the club.

"If you give someone like Giroud space in the six-yard box that's how good he can be".

An all-Spanish pairing sees Villarreal play Valencia, and three-time runner-up Benfica will face Eintracht Frankfurt.

Napoli are second in Serie A and are one of the stronger sides left in the competition.

Chelsea cruised into the last eight with an 8-0 aggregate win over Dynamo Kiev, after which Sarri expressed his preference to avoid Napoli in Friday's draw. The Poland worldwide has netted 17 times in all competitions this term - leading the club goalscoring charts - and has been a constant danger on the left of a front two with Dries Mertens on the other side.

The summer transfer window coming up is going to be a pivotal moment for Silva to add a few more quality players and the goal next year has to be to qualify for Europe.
