Olivier Giroud treble steers Chelsea into last eight

Arsenal to face Napoli in Europa League last eight

Arsenal to face Napoli in Europa League last eight

That's all for today!

Olivier Giroud scored his first hat-trick - and a flawless one to boot - for Chelsea as the west London club progressed serenely into the quarter- finals of the Europa League. "It means we are in the final, that would make me happy and Napoli are in the final and that would make me happy".

While Napoli are 18 points off Juventus at the summit of Serie A and have not been able to challenge the Bianconeri like they did last season, Carlo Ancelotti has attempted to nurture an evolution of "Sarriball" since he took over at the club.

The news will be welcome for Arsenal fans, who may have feared the thought of Insigne wreaking havoc on the right-hand side of their defence, particularly with first-choice right-back Hector Bellerin a long-term absentee, alongside Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck.

The Gunners were due to have the second leg at the Emirates, but their tie was switched as they are not permitted to play at home on the same night as Chelsea.

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

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.

Unai Emery

Gooners were envious of Chelsea, who were drawn against Slavia Prague after the Czech side knocked out Europa League veterans Sevilla in dramatic circumstances. Spurs' victors in the world's oldest football competition Crystal Palace are facing Watford in the Quarter-Finals.

The final will be played in Baku on May 29.

So, included in today's draw are: Arsenal, Chelsea, Slavia Praha, Napoli, Benfica, Villarreal, Valencia and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Should Chelsea win the Europa League, as they did in 2013, it would offer them an alternative route to next season's Champions League.
