Giroud unwilling to accept bit-part role at Chelsea

Many fans have been left confused as to why UEFA chose to make such a call but as per the rules, two clubs can not play a Europa League game in the same city on the same night.

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.

Sarri had previously suggested his emotional connection to his former club would make him wary of facing them, but speaking after Thursday's game in Kiev he said he would be happier if the reunion came at the end of the competition.

He said: "We started very well, I think, and we wanted to start in this way because it was really very important to score after the result at Stamford Bridge". Four very interesting quarter-final ties, with Arsenal v Napoli looking to be the clash of the round.

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.

But Sarri reserved special praise for England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who also impressed after being given a rare start.

Campaigners said 15,000 people took part in protests in more than 60 towns and cities across the United Kingdom in February. Elsewhere in New Zealand, Wellington students showed up in force, and of course, they wielded many excellent signs.

"So, for me, it will be very hard to play against them in Naples".

Sigurdsson is one of the leading players within the squad that is enjoying life under Silva and that's a good sign.

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. He had a wonderful match and I'm really happy he could play for 90 minutes.

"Recently, every time he has been on the pitch, he has played really very well", he later told a media conference.

"I feel a lot of trust and belief from the manager, I get on very well with him".
