Chelsea's David Luiz meets his doppelganger from Slavia Prague

Chelsea's David Luiz meets his doppelganger from Slavia Prague

Valencia eased through with a 5-1 aggregate win over Villarreal in an all-Spanish affair.

Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi, has spoken on the club's chances of winning the Europa League and also finish top four in the Premier League this season.

Luiz and Chelsea will now face Eintracht Frankfurt, who are into the semis of a European tournament for the first since 1980 after beating Benfica on away goals.

Chelsea scored three early goals before surviving a second-half scare to advance to the semifinals of the Europa League on Thursday with a 4-3 home win over Slavia Prague, and Arsenal beat Napoli 1-0 to make the last four for the second straight year.

Frankfurt have enjoyed a really good campaign both in the Bundesliga and the Europa League and one man who has mightily impressed playing for the German outfit is Luka Jovic.

After a 1-0 victory in the first leg in Prague a week ago, Chelsea doubled its overall lead five minutes into the game after Olivier Giroud freed Pedro Rodriguez to lob Slavia goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar.

Chelsea eventually saw off the threat to progress 5-3 on aggregate despite an unconvincing second-half display.

Adele splits from husband Simon Konecki
Adele has separated from her husband of two years, whom she shares a six-year-old son with. "There will be no further comment". Adele and Simon had been in a relationship for over 7 years and were married to each other since last 3 years.

Pedro produced a contender for miss of the season when presented with a tap-in from close range that came back off the post only for the ball to fly into the face of Slavia defender Simon Deli and rebound into the net for a weird own-goal.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made five changes from the team beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday and put Eden Hazard on the wing with Olivier Giroud the Blues' central striker.

Pedro then turned provider, squaring for Giroud to score his 10th Europa League goal of the season.

The win kept alive Emery's bid to win the competition for the fourth time, after doing so with Sevilla in three straight years from 2014.

"It was clear the second half would be hard for us".

"We knew they were not going to give up so we were under pressure until the end".
