The England global was handed a rare start by Sarri on Thursday night and took his chance as Chelsea romped to a 5-0 win at Dynamo Kiev in the second leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.

Chelsea took a 3-0 first-leg lead into the match in Kiev and added an away goal inside of five minutes when Giroud pounced on a Ruben Loftus-Cheek header following a corner and redirected it past Denys Boyko for the opener. I'm very happy he was able to play for 90 minutes. "He is improving in the last month", Sarri told BT Sport.

'His potential is very, very high.

Chelsea are now in the final eight of the Europa League, as they look to win the competition at the second time of asking.

While Eden Hazard has already predicted his team-mate will develop into one of the best in his position in England, the coach went one further.

"Tonight we've done well at set-pieces, and it's nice because when you can score goals from set-pieces you understand that you can get more points at the end of the championship, and obviously when you play Europa League".

Giroud completed his flawless hat trick - goals with the left and right foot and one with his head - in the 59th minute with a towering header from a Willian free kick to make it 4-0 as the rout continued.

'And second, it means that Naples are in the final, and I am happy.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was delighted with his side's performance, hailing their first-half efforts in particular. "I am really very happy for him and for the hat-trick, and I am really very happy with him".
