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

Chelsea Confirmed lineup vs Dynamo Kyiv: Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek...

Barnard admits that Chelsea are happy not to take on their London rivals in the last eight of the competition, but insisted that no game will be easy at such a late stage of the Europa League.

The final will be played in Baku on May 29.

Petr Cech believes the relentless competitiveness of the Premier League is the reason for the dominance of English teams in Europe this season as his Arsenal side prepare to face Napoli in the quarter-finals of the Europa League next month.

When, moments later, the word "Arsenal" was slowly revealed on the little white slip designating Napoli's quarter-final opponents, the most common reactions would have been low groans, facepalms and that sort of slow, inwards folding motion that people make when they receive bad news.

Victory on Merseyside would be a major boost to their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places, then, although it would take a win by six clear goals for them to end the day in fourth. "We wanted to start in this way", Sarri told BT Sport. He had a wonderful match and I'm really happy he could play for 90 minutes.

"Olivier is, for us, a very important player".

"First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that".

"When I do the tests on the treadmill I have to say that I have one of the best tests [at the club]".

Hudson-Odoi continued his eye-catching Europa League campaign with a goal and an assist at the Olympic Stadium, and Sarri was encouraged by the 18-year-old's display - while sounding a familiar note of caution. "It would be hard to play them with my history with the club".

"He played very well - better in the second half because we found the spaces and Callum in the spaces is really a very good player", Sarri added. I feel very well physically.
