Next up for us is Burnley. Last time we played Burnley was back in October and we won 4-0 away from home. Goals from Morata, Barkley, Willian and Loftus-Cheek gave us those 4 goals. If we win we could potentially go up to 3rd if Spurs and Arsenal lose or draw their games CHEBURcoybktbffh |Follow chelseacourier|

Good win. Onto Frankfurt which will be a challenge as well. The second half didn’t go well conceding 2 goals to a poor side. Frankfurt have some good players like Jovic,Rebic and Haller so it will be a challenge and I think we need to really focus on winning the UEL because top 4 doesn’t look like it will be as easy to get as winning the Europa COYBSarriIncfcKTBFFH
FULL TIME - Chelsea (5) 4-3 (3) Slavia Praha
Chelsea continued on the road to Baku with an entertaining Europa League victory at Stamford Bridge, setting up a semi-final tie against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Pedro was involved in all 4 first half goals for the Blues as he teed up Giroud - the competition's leading goalscorer - and a Slavia Praha own goal, as well as scoring 2 himself within the first 30 minutes.
Praha were able to stay in the tie with a header in the first half and 2 goals in quick succession from Sevcik in a poor second half for the hosts, but Chelsea held on in order to progress to the semi-finals alongside fellow English club Arsenal.

We are through to the semi-finals🎉We will face Eintracht Frankfurt💪🏽🔵
Chelsea had an amazing first half; scoring 4 and conceding 1. I thought we will continue and score about 2 more goals but no. Slavia earnt back 2 goals through Petr Ševčík. Eden Hazard was a target as three players(I think it was) kept hitting him on his ankle, which resulted in him falling and looking very ruffled. You could see it in his face so Sarri subbed him off for Willian around 60-65’ mark.
The second half didn’t have the intensity and urge to score more goals as we thought that 4-1 at halftime was game done. Silly mistakes occurred time to time and we looked very shaky. Jorginho came on and it stopped Slavia running through our midfield. This shows that Jorginho is a very vital player in Sarri’s system and he’s the engine of this Chelsea side. Kepa got booked, yet again, for time-wasting.
Giroud became top goal scorer of the Europa League with 10 goals to his name.
Overall I believe it was an great win(5-3) but we could have been more careful in the defensive side of things but what matters is that we are through to the semifinals vs Eintracht, which will undoubtedly be a tough game as they turned round a 4-2 deficit away from home to 4-4 aggergate.
