Chelsea boss Sarri: Why is Giroud complaining...?

N'Golo Kante

Through to the semi-finals of the Europa League after defeating Slavia Prague last Thursday, his side sit fifth in the table, after taking a 2-0 humbling at the hands of Liverpool in their last league outing. We also have another objective, which is the Europa League, so we have another opportunity'.

Giroud said: "We dropped a little bit of our intensity and made some technical mistakes".

Despite dominating possession throughout the second half and Hazard continuing to torment the Burnley defence down the left flank, Chelsea passed the 70-minute mark still searching for a go-ahead goal.

Tensions escalated as Burnley stubbornly repelled waves of Chelsea pressure and acted to slow the game down in the closing minutes, and at the final whistle a mass of angry bodies from both clubs converged at the entrance to the Stamford Bridge tunnel.

The Blues are still in contention for a top-four finish this season and would secure a coveted spot in Europe's elite club competition.

"But it's a competition in which you need to be lucky".

"That's the only title we can win now, so it would be great to win the Europa League. But he needs to recover like the other players, more than the other players because he is 90 kilos and after the match he needs time to recover".

"I always regret when I used to take refuge and avoid going out in fear of what people would say to me", Higuain said to ESPN's Let's Talk Football.

Chelsea played a spectacular match in the second leg of the Europa League quarter-finals.

As mentioned already, I expect Burnley to make this a really tough night for the hosts, and while I believe Chelsea, and hopefully Hazard, will ultimately make the breakthrough I certainly don't expect a convincing victory for Sarri's men.

Mathematically not out of the relegation rat race, yet Sean Dyche has dragged his squad into a very promising position to remain in the top flight, in comparison to the struggling shapes of Cardiff City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

"It is easier to get to the final of the Champions League".

"The last four or five matches will be hard for every team involved in fighting for the top four, not only for us".

When it was put to him that Sarri had exchanged angry words with members of his backroom team including Woan, Dyche joked: "I don't think the coaches' language skills are that good". "He told me I will try but I'm not sure I will finish the match, so I prefer to change him because we have to play another very important match in three or four days".
