Arsenal draw Napoli in quarter-final, Chelsea to face Slavia Prague

Arsenal draw Napoli in quarter-final, Chelsea to face Slavia Prague

The first quarter-final will be played between Napolli and Arsenal. "Despite standing at just 5'4", he carries huge importance to the side and Carlo Ancelotti will be desperate to bring him back to full fitness in time for this quarter-final clash.

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 final is on May 29 at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.

If his team can perform anywhere near to their best then there is no reason why they can't take home the trophy.

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.

The midfield sees Ruben Loftus-Cheek being handed a start alongside Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante, with Jorginho provided a rest and Ross Barkley not risked, for the English global is one yellow card away from suspension. "So, for me, it will be very hard to play against them in Naples".

Busy day capped with trade for Odell Beckham, Jr
If Beckham were to have a new contract, there is a chance he won't get a much better deal than what he has at the moment. Prior to the trade being made, Beckham apparently provided the Giants with a list of teams he wanted to go to.

It would certainly be another step up in class if the Blues meet either of them and it's to be expected deep in the competition.

The Portuguese outfit sit top of their domestic league ahead of Porto on goal difference and wonderkid Joao Felix is someone to be wary of in their ranks.

On the whole, they feel confident that their side can get the job done and keep alive their hopes in a competition that could yet spell their best chance of qualification for next season's Champions League. A Napoli final again from Maurizio Sarri's position would be pretty exciting. Arsenal, however, face an extremely challenging tie against Napoli.

"I am not picking the team, the manager makes some choices".

"Everton will double up on Eden Hazard and try to suffocate the game".
