Arsenal, Chelsea in sterile stalemate in League Cup semis

Share

Wilshere started and captained the side for the 0-0 draw away at Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night but he had to be taken off in the second-half with a knock.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, meanwhile, who is engulfed in a war of words with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, off late, has mentioned that winning the semi-final first leg at home will give his side oodles of confidence. "We have played Chelsea so many times that the two teams know each other very well and that's why when the two teams decide to block the game, they can do it".

"You have to accept as well when you play so many games, and Sanchez plays every game, that sometimes a breather in the middle of the season helps them a little bit".

Gooners, can Arsenal finally win this competition under Arsene Wenger? "I let him go".

Oddly, the VAR was not used in Tuesday's first semi-final between Manchester City and Bristol City.

Conte anticipates Arsenal will field their best available team for tonight's game, and although this is the second of three meetings this month with the Gunners, it is the schedule rather than familiarity that is setting the challenge.

Wenger was given marching orders for the successive three Arsenal matches and he was also fined £40,000 for verbally abusing referee Mike Dean in the referee's changing room and questioning the referee's integrity. Cesar Azoplicueta sent in a curler and Fabregas, alone in the six-yard area, headed the ball, somewhat weakly straight into the midriff of Ospina.

"A free role if I can say, he doesn't have to defend that much following the wing back, or full back nowadays".

Arsenal were dealt a blow a minute later when Jack Wilshere was forced off with an injury and replaced by Mohamed Elneny.

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? "We have to improve with all the players, not only the strikers. It was his good ankle". I do not know how long he will be out. It also offers his only prospect of domestic silverware this season, since Arsenal's FA Cup defense ended at the first hurdle at Nottingham Forest on Sunday and the team is sixth in the Premier League.

Arsenal haven't always enjoyed happy and harmonious visits to Stamford Bridge in recent times.
