Villarreal and Valencia drawn together in Europa League quarter-final

Villarreal and Valencia drawn together in Europa League quarter-final

The France global has scored nine goals in Europe but has seen his first-team opportunities in the Premier League restricted by Sarri, with Gonzalo Higuaín signed on loan in January.

"Olivier is, for us, a very important player". Eintracht Frankfurt's star striker Luka Jovic scored a delicious chip to secure the victory and put them through to the quarter-finals.

Chelsea FC are in sixth place in the English top-flight table and three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with eight games to play. "First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that", Sarri said. "So, for me, it will be very hard to play against them in Naples".

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.

The 60-year-old Italian had been livid at the state of...

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

Villarreal who have reached the semifinals in 2004, 2011 and 2016 will take on 2004 winners Valencia CF in a Spanish derby.

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.

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.

As it transpired, it is Arsenal who face Napoli and Walker, who played for Chelsea between 1976-1984, would welcome an all London final but thinks Sarri's side must take it one round at a time.

For Insigne, the Italian will now be unable to represent his country during the global break and crucially for all three it will be a race against time for the Arsenal clash on April 11th. A Napoli final again from Maurizio Sarri's position would be pretty exciting.
