Chelsea Handed Carabao Cup Blow as Spanish Duo Ruled Out Through Injury

Chelsea Handed Carabao Cup Blow as Spanish Duo Ruled Out Through Injury

The tie is now finely balanced after a 0-0 draw during the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

'If you rememeber in the past, Morata stopped because of a pain in his back and now it came back the day before Brighton, ' Conte reported. "Then I have to check a couple of situations [in terms of injuries to other players]".

The Blues pair are unavailable for selection for the return leg at the Emirates tomorrow, with striker Morata ruled out with a back problem and Fabregas' issue not disclosed.

Monreal was a fitness doubt after limping off 34 minutes into Saturday's 4-1 win over Crystal Palace, in which he scored one and provided two assists, with what Arsene Wenger subsequently confirmed was a "kick on the back of his hamstring".

Speaking at his pre-match news conference on Tuesday morning, Wenger said: "It's an important game for us".

"In my first season and a half I have the opportunity to win the league, to play the final of the FA Cup, and play the Community Shield".

The EFL have sent Arsenal Carabao-branded graphics to display on their two giant screens suspended from the stadium's roof in the latest step of technology trials. To play the final we must get past Arsenal, which is always a big challenge. "He played with us many games and he can show his potentiality".

"When you play against Arsenal for sure you must be prepared to suffer without the ball". This is very important for me and my players.

If you look at the instability now in the Premier League, it doesn't encourage managers to take gambles with young players and when they make their team on Friday night they will go more for security and security is experience, than to give a chance to young players.

While Arsenal have just let Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United, Chelsea will be without Morata through injury.

"I think Arsenal has a good squad, and I don't see any advantage in this situation", he said.
