Maurizio Sarri reveals the club he is desperate for Chelsea to avoid in Europa League draw

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed the one team he wants to avoid in Friday’s Europa League draw.

The Blues thrashed Dynamo Kyiv 5-0 in Ukraine in their second-leg clash.

Arsenal, Benfica, Napoli, Valencia, Eintracht Frankfurt, Villarreal and Slavia Prague are among the Europa League’s last-eight clubs.

Sarri wants revenge over his former side Napoli in the final in Baku in May.

“I prefer to find them in the final,” Sarri said. “It means we are in the final, that would make me happy, and Napoli are in the final and that would make me happy.”

Sarri added: “It would be difficult to play them with my history with the club.”

The draw for the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the Europa League takes place on Friday.
