Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud demands game time from Maurizio Sarri

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

"Callum needs to do it as well and take these opportunities when they come along".

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.

Arkadiusz Milik scored a crucial away goal in the 14th minute to all but end the tie, leaving Salzburg needing five unanswered goals to progress.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will escape punishment for making alleged illegal payments to the father of defender Andreas Christensen, because they were declared during a Premier League amnesty period in 2015.

Benfica are the side that Chelsea beat in the Europa League final and are an experienced team on the European stage that would pose a real threat.

"I thought he was terrific", Walker said.

"No. No chance. I'm a competitor", Giroud said, per The Sun.

Benfica or Frankfurt will first host Slavia Prague or Chelsea in the second semi.

But Sarri reserved special praise for England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who also impressed after being given a rare start. "Despite standing at just 5'4", he carries huge importance to the side and Carlo Ancelotti will be desperate to bring him back to full fitness in time for this quarter-final clash.

"Chelsea are looking very, very good to go on and at least get to the final, if not win it", Walker added.

Maurizio Sarri would surely love to win a trophy during his first campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge and his path to the final has now been mapped out. And second, it means that Napoli are in the final, and I am happy. I think I have a few nice years in front of me, " Giroud explained according to UK Sun.

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