Arsenal to face Napoli in Europa League last eight

That's all for today! I want to play every single game and to be happy on the pitch.

Maurizio Sarri has chosen to hand starts to academy graduates Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek as Chelsea take on Dynamo Kyiv in the UEFA Europa League. Arsenal, however, face an extremely challenging tie against Napoli.

Giroud has mostly had to make do with second striker status - first to Alvaro Morata and then to Gonzalo Higuain - after signing for the club in an £18m transfer from Arsenal in January 2018.

Despite Arsenal coming out of the hat second, this time the first leg of the quarter-finals will be at the Emirates on April 11, with the Gunners heading to Napoli a week later, because of a potential clash with Chelsea's tie against Slavia Prague.

Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up for Sunday's Premier League visit to Everton, which could see them move level with fourth-placed Arsenal.

Gooners were envious of Chelsea, who were drawn against Slavia Prague after the Czech side knocked out Europa League veterans Sevilla in dramatic circumstances.

Before Arsenal can even begin to think about the semis, they will need to direct all their energies towards overcoming the team now second in Serie A. Here's what they can expect from Carlo Ancelotti and co in the quarter-finals. Spurs' victors in the world's oldest football competition Crystal Palace are facing Watford in the Quarter-Finals.

The draw keeps alive the possibility of an all-English final in Baku, Azerbaijan on May 29.

Arsenal and Chelsea, however, might need a path into the top-tier competition next season by taking the place reserved for the Europa League victor.

Villarreal take on fellow Spanish side Valencia with Portuguese team Benfica playing Germany's Eintracht Frankfurt.
