Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri calls for more consistency in attack

Loftus-Cheek could be one of Europe's best - Sarri

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.

"And second, it means that Naples are in the final and I am happy".

"We saw with his goal what he is capable of".

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

Everton will be focusing on trying to improve their record against Chelsea though, winning just 9 of the previous 53 Premier League meetings.

First-choice centre-forward Gonzalo Higuain missed the midweek trip to Kiev due to illness, with back-up Olivier Giroud continuing his fine form in Europe by scoring a hat-trick.

"I thought he was terrific", Walker said.

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".

Benfica or Frankfurt will first host Slavia Prague or Chelsea in the second semi.

If Chelsea can get past Slavia Prague, they know that either Benfica or Eintracht Frankfurt will be waiting in the semi-finals.

Sarri heavily rotated for the match in Kiev, handing rare starts to Ruben Loftus-Cheek in central midfield and Hudson-Odoi on the right wing, and both Chelsea academy products looked sharp at the Olympic Stadium as their team ran riot.

"Chelsea are looking very, very good to go on and at least get to the final, if not win it", Walker added.

An all-Spanish affair for the second quarter-final. I'm still hungry and I have a few nice years in front of me'.
