Olivier Giroud treble steers Chelsea into last eight

The ex-Arsenal star kept quiet about what the future may hold for him but reiterated that he was happy to have helped Chelsea advance to the final eight of the Europa League. When I do the tests on the treadmill I have to say that I have one of the best tests (at the club). "First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that", Sarri said.

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.

"I thought he was terrific", Walker said. "Despite standing at just 5'4", he carries huge importance to the side and Carlo Ancelotti will be desperate to bring him back to full fitness in time for this quarter-final clash.

Giroud, who is yet to start in the Premier League in 2019 after the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, netted a first-half double, before Marcos Alonso slid home a third on the stroke of half-time.

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

At least we don't have regrets that we didn't analyze this question. "We know the situation in the Gulf region", added Infantino. And after hearing Infantino's announcement on Friday, the ECA issued a statement saying its clubs would not participate in 2021.

Jovic is now on a two-year loan at the German side from their Europa League opponents Benfica, with Frankfurt likely to take up the option-to-buy clause in the summer.

The road to the final in Baku is shaping up to be a long, hard slog for Arsenal, who could be forgiven for feeling a twinge of envy at Chelsea being drawn against Slavia Prague and then facing a semi-final against one of Eintracht Frankfurt or Benfica.

Of all the sides Arsenal could have been matched with in the quarter-finals, Napoli were up there with Chelsea and Valencia as one of the least favourable. A Napoli final again from Maurizio Sarri's position would be pretty exciting.

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.
