Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win over Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night to make it to the final of the EFL Cup.

Chelsea dominated the early proceedings with Tiemoue Bakayoko seeing a shot deflect wide of David Ospina’s goal. Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses also flashed a long-range effort well wide of goal.

The Blues thought they had the lead on five minutes, as Spanish winger Pedro scored with a powerful header. However, the referee’s assistant flagged for offside and replays proved that the decision was the correct one.

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

The home side had the first attempt on goal after just two minutes, as Alvaro Morata tried to poke an effort in at the near post. However, the Spanish striker could only find the side-netting.

The next attempt on goal did not come until the 20th minute when Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka dragged a long-range free-kick wide of goal. Two minutes later the visitors hit the Blues on the counter-attack, Jack Wilshere feeding the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who fires wide of Chelsea’s near post.

Arsenal and Chelsea are ready for the second of their three January encounters.

Having played out a scintillating 2-2 draw in the Premier League last week, the London rivals are set to lock horns once again – in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie at Stamford Bridge.

Premier League might be the priority competition for both sides this season with Gunners and Blues looking to lock the top-four finish and secure Champions League football next year but Carabao Cup could arguably be their best chance of securing a piece of silverware this term.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium, as the home side attempt to make up ground on the top-four.

A disappointing display and result at West Brom in a 1-1 draw saw the Gunners fall six points behind fourth-place Liverpool in the race for the Champions League spots.

A run of just two wins in their last seven Premier League outings has hampered Arsene Wenger’s side’s top-four challenge. Four draws in their last six top-flight outings has also stopped the Gunners making up ground on the top-four.

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal face a tough test as the Gunners travel to London rivals Chelsea in the Premier League.

The home side have hit form of late, recording four consecutive wins in all competitions. Last time out the Blues hammered Azerbaijan champions Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League. The big win followed a 2-1 win at Leicester in their last Premier League outing.

Unsurprisingly considering that they were champions last season, Antonio Conte’s side have a formidable record in the Premier League of late, having won nine of their last ten outings in the English top-flight. The English champions have also scored two or more goals in nine of their last ten league outings.

Arsenal just not good enough to win the title 0

Posted on February 05, 2017 by David Nugent

Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at league leaders Chelsea showed that Arsenal are simply not good enough to win the Premier League title. Despite at times dominating possession, the Gunners did not seem to have the strength, quality or big game know-how to beat the Blues.

It looked like men against boys at times. Chelsea were incisive and boss Antonio Conte knew exactly were the Gunners weak spots were and exploited them to perfection. In reality Chelsea probably did not really have to adapt their game much for the clash, as they recorded a relatively comfortable win.

Alexis Sanchez’s pre-season has been delayed by the fact that he had to wait for a new visa, according to the Daily Telegraph. The Chilean international was stuck in Paris on Monday, (not a bad place to be stuck really) waiting for his new visa to be processed.

The Chilean has been allowed an extended break after he helped his national side win the Copa America on home soil. The 26-year-old scored the winning penalty in the final of the competition against Argentina.
