Frank Lampard urges Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay at Chelsea

"He has been able to train after the problem with the back".

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. He had a wonderful match and I'm really happy that he could play for 90 minutes.

Asked who has been Chelsea FC's top player in training recently, Hudson Odoi told the club's website: "N'Golo, he's always working hard and keeping a high standard". Physically and tactically he is improving.

Giroud completed his ideal hat trick - goals with the left and right foot and one with his head - in the 59th minute with a towering header from a Willian free kick to make it 4-0 as the rout continued.

The 23-year-old was credited with his second assist of the season when Olivier Giroud opened the scoring five minutes into the encounter, adding to the six goals he has scored for Chelsea this season. As you know very well, Olivier is a very important player.

The Premier League side will now await Friday's draw to see who they will face in the quarterfinals, with a spot in the Champions League on offer for the victor of the second-tier European continental tournament.

The last time the Blues were in the Europa League was in 2013, when they went on to win it in a dramatic 2-1 final win over Benfica. "It means we are in the final, that would make me happy and Napoli are in the final and that would make me happy. I am really very happy for him and for the hat-trick, and I am really very happy with him".

'So, for me, it will be very hard to play against them in Naples'.
