Villarreal and Valencia drawn together in Europa League quarter-final

Villarreal and Valencia drawn together in Europa League quarter-final

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.

Sarri will have to be wary of Prague's attacking qualities, but at the same time they should be able to cause huge problems of their own offensively.

The Premier League giants are bidding for a first trophy under the Italian after losing last month's English League Cup final to Manchester City, and hoping to secure qualification for next season's Champions League.

'Sometimes we've played with very good quality in the offensive phase, and sometimes not, ' he said. "But I think [it was] a wonderful performance for 90 minutes".

"Physically, technically and tactically he is improving".

Hudson-Odoi also continued his fine run in the competition with a fourth goal in Europe this season and while Walker thinks he will only get better, Giroud could act as the ideal role-model for him.

"Recently, every time he has been on the pitch, he has played really very well", he later told a media conference. He has scored nine goals in this competition.

Here is everything you need to know about the game.

Elsewhere, Napoli wrapped up a 4-3 aggregate victory over last season's semi-finalists Salzburg despite a 3-1 second-leg loss in Austria.

" "[The draw against Arsenal is] a hard but very fascinating challenge for us, for the club and for our fans.

And the 61-year-old has a point when he argued that no side will want to face the Blues, who are aiming to win the competition they lifted six years ago. "I'm happy for him, but he has to keep the feet on the ground because he can improve more". A Napoli final again from Maurizio Sarri's position would be pretty exciting.

The first quarter-final will be played between Napolli and Arsenal.
