Europa League draw: Arsenal in nightmare quarter-final

  • Arsenal's Pierre Emerick Aubameyang right celebrates after scoring his side's third goal during the Europa League round of 16 2nd leg soccer match between Arsenal and Rennes at the Emirates stadium in London Thursday March 1

"I am really very happy for him and for the hat-trick, and I am really very happy with him".

"We were able to score after five minutes".

Giroud took his tally to nine in nine Europa League starts this season, where he has been a near ever present for Chelsea.

They have been irresistible in Europe so far with players such as Olivier Giroud, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek thriving and now come up against Czech giants Prague.

Benfica are the side that Chelsea beat in the Europa League final and are an experienced team on the European stage that would pose a real threat. But, Sarri said that the Argentine should be okay to play against Everton, although hinting that he might not be ready to start.

Higuain's replacement, Olivier Giroud, netted a flawless hat-trick in a dominant performance by the Blues, with Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi also getting on the scoresheet in a 5-0 win.

"He's in the area, in the six-yard box more often than most centre forwards you see these days".

"I prefer to face them in the final".

In the other half of the draw, Benfica have been drawn to face Frankfurt, whilst Chelsea have perhaps been given the most favourable draw after being paired with Slavia Prague.

Chelsea FC will now take on Slavia Prague for a place in the Europa League semi-finals next month.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed that striker Gonzalo Higuain "should" be able to play against Everton on Sunday, football.london report.

"Chelsea are looking very, very good to go on and at least get to the final, if not win it", Walker added.

The victor of the quarter-final between Napoli and Arsenal will certainly be favourite to make the final, both of which are capable of causing a serious threat to the Blues.

The first quarter-final will be played between Napolli and Arsenal.

"But I think it's about seeing each one as it comes and going through each round".
