Chelsea: Winning the Europa League must be the focus for Maurizio Sarri as top four chances slip

Against Burnley on Monday night, the Blues had the perfect chance to capitalise on their top-four rivals Easter weekend slip-up, but failed to seize the initiative, drawing 2-2 at Stamford Bridge and have now played a game more than Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal.

So, while Chelsea have been making hard work of securing a top-four spot for next season, they have reached the semi-finals of Europe’s secondary competition unbeaten and virtually unscathed.

MOL Vidi, Malmo, Dynamo Kiev and Slavia Prague to name a few, have been the opposition for Chelsea en route to the final four and the only time the Blues looked remotely troubled was when they suffered a familiar second-half collapse to concede twice against Prague in the quarter-final.
