Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri was full of praise following his side’s away win against Dynamo Kiev in the second-tie of Europa League’s last-16.

The Italian boss told journalists: “We started very well. We wanted to start in this way because it was important to score after the result in Stamford Bridge. We were able to score after five minutes. For the opponent it was a difficult situation”.

“We played a very good first half. In the second we managed the result. It was a wonderful performance for 90 minutes”.

On Olivier Giroud, who scored a hat-trick tonight: “It was very, very good. In the last period every time he has been on the pitch he was able to play really very well. He scored nine goals in this competition. Olivier is a very important player for us. I am very happy for him and his hat-trick, and I am very happy with him”.
