Arsenal handed boost ahead of Europa League tie with Napoli trio injured

Arsenal handed boost ahead of Europa League tie with Napoli trio injured

"I prefer to face them in the final".

"In fact I think he's been very good for Chelsea since he's been at the club, possibly underrated in many respects but proving it again in the Europa League that he can score goals".

If you fancied a bet on penalties being awarded then you might take heart from the fact that there hasn't been one in this fixture in the Premier League since 2010, but there have been 49 penalties awarded in games between the two sides.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Napoli, Valencia CF, Slavia Prague, Eintracht Frankfurt, Villarreal and Benfica were the eight teams involved in the draw for the last-eights of the Europa League this season after progressing from the Round of 16. "I'm really very happy for him". "It would be hard to play them with my history with the club".

"His potential as a player is very, very, high", he said.

Whilst Spurs or United will be allowed to try and retain the Champions League trophy next season should they win it at the Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid, at the beginning of June, Arsenal or Chelsea will gain entry upon winning the Europa League.

But despite a patchy Premier League record, where the 32-year-old has only netted four times since his move from Arsenal in January 2018, Walker believes the Frenchman's talents are not fully appreciated.

Jovic is now on a two-year loan at the German side from their Europa League opponents Benfica, with Frankfurt likely to take up the option-to-buy clause in the summer.

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

Of all the sides Arsenal could have been matched with in the quarter-finals, Napoli were up there with Chelsea and Valencia as one of the least favourable.

The club celebrated qualification to the quarter final stage after overcoming RB Salzburg 4-3 on aggregate despite losing 3-1 on Thursday, however, this injury news will surely put a dampener on what has otherwise been a great week for the club. The Serbian global will be able to face his parent side. A Napoli final again from Maurizio Sarri's position would be pretty exciting.

"Chelsea are probably one of the favourites and the performance last night proves why".
