The striker has found himself on the fringes of the Blues' first team in the Premier League since the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain on loan in January, but Sarri told reporters after the game he remains an important figure in his plans.

"The potential of Loftus-Cheek is very high".

Carlo Ancelotti's side are as tough a side as remains in Europe's secondary competition and they beat Liverpool on their own patch in this season's Champions League before being narrowly edged out in the final round of group matches.

The France global has scored nine goals in Europe but has seen his first-team opportunities in the Premier League restricted by Sarri, with Gonzalo Higuaín signed on loan in January.

"It was hard at the end but I kept pushing to try and get the runs in my legs and I'm really happy with that".

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard is one of several first-team stars who should come back into the starting XI as Chelsea continue their pursuit of a top-four finish. I don't like that, ' said Sarri. "It would be hard to play them with my history with the club".

"He's in the area, in the six-yard box more often than most centre forwards you see these days".

Maurizio Sarri, however, got his wish as Chelsea avoided his old club Napoli in Friday's quarter-final draw, earning a favourable tie against Slavia Prague instead.

The Blues cruised past Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate after two legs and are into the quarter-finals of the competition.

Jovic is now on a two-year loan at the German side from their Europa League opponents Benfica, with Frankfurt likely to take up the option-to-buy clause in the summer. A Napoli final again from Maurizio Sarri's position would be pretty exciting. I think I have a few nice years in front of me.
