Chelsea fans believe Europa League success this season is an open-and-shut case after being handed a favourable route to the final in Baku.

Maurizio Sarri's men avoided difficult challenges against big hitters Arsenal and Napoli by drawing Slavia Prague in the quarter-finals on Friday.

The Blues will face the winner of Benfica and Frankfurt in the semi-final should they win the two-legged tie.

Despite Slavia Prague progressing by knocking out five-time winners Sevilla in the last round, Chelsea fans are confident they won't pose any trouble to them.

Hundreds of Blues fans took to Twitter to express sheer delight after an auspicious path to the final was laid out in front of them.

One fan assuredly stated: 'Too easy'. Many others echoed that confidence with another claiming: 'It's a walk over already.'

Some even went as far to anoint Chelsea as the champions despite there still being potentially five games for them to play.

Chelsea's domestic rivals Arsenal, meanwhile, found themselves clouded by the worst possible outcome, drawing tournament favourites Napoli.

Benfica will face Frankfurt in the other quarter-final while an all-Spanish affair between Villarreal and Valencia completes the draw.
