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.
One step away from the final, both Chelsea and Arsenal are expected to take the forthcoming clash seriously and field their strongest sides possible.
Chelsea star Eden Hazard is expected to start after being spared for the FA Cup clash at Norwich last time out, whereas Arsene Wenger will call upon the Chilean star Alexis Sanchez once again despite the growing Manchester City links.
Having lost 4-2 to Championship strugglers Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge determined to get back up on their feet.
Wenger is once again facing strong criticism and is expected to provide a strong response.
