Giroud hat-trick helps Chelsea ease into Europa quarters

Chelsea Confirmed lineup vs Dynamo Kyiv: Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek...

"We wanted to start in this way", Sarri told BT Sport.

Giroud is on a mission to help Maurizio Sarri secure a memorable end to the season after his ideal hat-trick against Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League on Thursday night. "He has been able to train after the problem with the back. But I think [it was] a wonderful performance for 90 minutes".

"Olivier is, for us, a very important player".

The Italians are now second in Serie A to Juventus and have already shown their pedigree this season by beating Liverpool and drawing twice against Paris Saint-Germain in this season's Champions League group stages. "He can become one of the best midfielders not only in England but in Europe".

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.

"He played very well - better in the second half because we found the spaces and Callum in the spaces is really a very good player", Sarri added.

"It was hard at the end but I kept pushing to try and get the runs in my legs and I'm really happy with that".

Teenager Hudson-Odoi got on the score sheet before the final whistle, using his speed to outrun the Dynamo defence on the counter and easily beat Boyko to make it five goals on the night for Chelsea.

"First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that".

The former Everton midfielder will get a heated reception should he play any part in the game, with Evertonians refusing to forgive him for the way he left the club in a cut-price move.

The path to the final at Azerbaijan's Olympic Stadium in Baku on Wednesday 29th May was also revealed with Friday's draw showing which of the quarter-final winners will face off in the semi-finals.

An all-Spanish affair for the second quarter-final.
