Chelsea face Chelsea at Slavia Prague, while Arsenal host Napoli on Saturday in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
Despite being promoted to third place in the Premier League, Chelsea still believe that winning the UEFA Champions League is the best bet and the best way to return to the Champions League next season.
The European championship is also the perfect lifeline for the Italian coach Maurizio Sari to get out of this dilemma of the team wearing the blue robe.
Chelsea are expected to make some changes in their squad on Tuesday in light of the strong matches awaiting the team in the domestic league, which puts Sari in a real bind.
Only one month ago, the UEFA Champions League win was the only hope for Chelsea to return to the Champions League next season, but the impressive performance of Belgian Eden Hazard has revived their hopes of finishing the season in the English Premier League.
