Loftus-Cheek could be one of Europe's best - Sarri

An Olivier Giroud hat-trick and goals from Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi secured a resounding 5-0 win against Dynamo Kiev on Thursday as Chelsea booked their place in the Europa League quarter-finals with an 8-0 aggregate victory.

'At the moment, we are not able to do this because, sometimes, we are without movement without the ball.

Chelsea are competing for a top four finish in the Premier League this season, but another route into the Champions League for next year could be by winning the Europa League.

"[The draw against Arsenal is] a hard but very fascinating challenge for us, for the club and for our fans", Ancelotti said.

But despite a patchy Premier League record, where the 32-year-old has only netted four times since his move from Arsenal in January 2018, Walker believes the Frenchman's talents are not fully appreciated.

Giroud completed his ideal hat trick - goals with the left and right foot and one with his head - in the 59th minute with a towering header from a Willian free kick to make it 4-0 as the rout continued. I don't like that, ' said Sarri.

"No. No chance. I'm a competitor", Giroud said, per The Sun.

Barr also made remarks and said President Trump's emergency declaration on the issue is "firmly grounded" in the law. As president, Trump has the constitutional authority under Article I, Section 7 to reject a proposal from Congress.

And accordingly the victor of the third quarter-final will play the victor of the second in the semi-finals.

So, included in today's draw are: Arsenal, Chelsea, Slavia Praha, Napoli, Benfica, Villarreal, Valencia and Eintracht Frankfurt.

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.

"Of course, an Arsenal final sounds good from the British side of things".

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.

"Chelsea are probably one of the favourites and the performance last night proves why".
