A very favourable tie for the Premier League club, as they take on Czech side Slavia Praha.

"The potential of Loftus-Cheek is very high".

Asked if he sees his future in England, Giroud added: 'For me the Premier League is great, it is my favourite 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.

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. "Making that step up is very hard and he showed that he can score goals from that position with his pace".

Carlo Ancelotti has missed the trickery and talent of Insigne on a few occasions this season, with the 27-year-old having scored nine goals and setting up a further six in Serie A so far this term.

The draw for the Europa League quarterfinals and semifinals will be made at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon on Friday, and the manner of Chelsea's passage to the last eight has put them among the favourites to lift the trophy.

So, included in today's draw are: Arsenal, Chelsea, Slavia Praha, Napoli, Benfica, Villarreal, Valencia and Eintracht Frankfurt. The winners will face Benfica or Eintracht Frankfurt in the last four. 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.

This weekend, only Chelsea have a league fixture, with Manchester United taking on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux hoping to get into the Semi-Finals of the FA Cup.

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