How the draw for the Europa League quarter-finals panned out

"I have already gone back to France and back to Rennes in this campaign, and Chelsea are always one of the teams who could get in the way".

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

On the other hand, Spain does have the guarantee of one representative in the semi-final of the tournament, and the path of the draw ensures that either Villarreal or Valencia will be paired with the victor of the tie between Arsenal and Napoli in the semi-final.

"Whoever comes in our way, we would have to face them and find a way through".

They have conceded only 21 goals in Serie A this season - second only to runaway league leaders Juventus - and despite narrowly missing out on progression to the Champions League last 16 on account of having scored two fewer than Liverpool in the group stage, they had the best defensive record in the group with only five goals scored against them.

"I am doing everything to make it happen and my team-mates are the same".

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

The midfield sees Ruben Loftus-Cheek being handed a start alongside Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante, with Jorginho provided a rest and Ross Barkley not risked, for the English worldwide is one yellow card away from suspension. "We wanted to start in this way", Sarri told BT Sport.

"His potential as a player is very, very, high", he said. I'm very happy he was able to play for 90 minutes.

"When I do the tests on the treadmill I have to say that I have one of the best tests [at the club]".

His regular Premier League place at Arsenal has been lost to Bernd Leno, but the 36-year-old remains Unai Emery's automatic choice for the cup competitions. "I'm happy for him, but he has to keep the feet on the ground because he can improve more".
