The Blues thrashed the Ukrainian outfit 5-0 at the Olympyskiy Stadium to clinch their biggest away win of the season, with Olivier Giroud bagging a marvellous hat-trick.

While Eden Hazard has already predicted his team-mate will develop into one of the best in his position in England, the coach went one further.

"He did very well".

"He is improving", Sarri said to BT Sport of Loftus-Cheek. "He has been able to train after the problem with the back. But I think [it was] a wonderful performance for 90 minutes".

"I don't know the reason, probably winter, because I played here two years ago and the pitch was wonderful (but it is now) very, very unsafe". Physically and tactically he is improving.

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 worldwide is one yellow card away from suspension.

Giroud's ideal hat-trick means he is the Europa League's top scorer this season with nine goals and Sarri was delighted with his display.

Two more goals for Chelsea before half-time - Giroud's second and a sliding finish from Marcos Alonso from a Callum Hudson-Odoi cross - put the tie to bed for Maurizio Sarri's side with 45 minutes left to play.

Chelsea confirm their place in the Europa League quarter-finals with a 5-0 victory over Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine on Thursday night.

"Firstly, I'd love him to stay at Chelsea", Lampard told talkSPORT.

"I prefer to face them in the final", he added.

Alonso was not satisfied with his first-half goal, and the Spaniard was only prevented from netting a second when Boyko somehow tipped his well-struck free kick onto the post and crossbar.
