Arsenal Make Carabao Cup Final

Arsenal Make Carabao Cup Final

The last time the Gunners reached the League Cup final, in 2011, they suffered a shock defeat to Birmingham City - and Arsene Wenger admits that still stings.

It will be City's sixth League Cup final appearance and the first against Arsenal, who beat Chelsea in the last four.

After a goalless first leg, the visitors took an early lead at the Emirates through Eden Hazard but Arsenal were level soon afterwards via a freakish Antonio Rudiger own goal and scored the victor in the second half through Granit Xhaka.

David Ospina has urged Arsenal to move on from the loss of the "excellent" Alexis Sanchez after the victory over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final proved that there is life after the new Manchester United ace.

"What's best is I don't talk about that because it won't help", Wenger said.

"It's right to have this type of situation", he said ahead of Chelsea' FA Cup fourth-round tie against Newcastle.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insisted that he has little influence over the club's transfer market activity after they were knocked out of the League Cup by Arsenal on Wednesday.

"After any defeat, the next game you need to bounce back and show the answer from the team". We can do better.

"I felt that in January we paid a heavy price for uncertainty in our dressing-room", Wenger said.

Since the inception of the Premier League in the 1992/93 season, 49 clubs have competed to win the title and a number of them clubs looked to avoid relegation.

The Chelsea manager has also started choosing youngster Andreas Christensen over the experienced 30-year-old recently, and the young Dane has been performing very well, filling Luiz's shoes. "But we are in the final again and we can take our fans there".

"I think Willian's injury was decisive. We got Henrikh Mkhitaryan in and I have a strong squad".

"There is a big disappointment ... there was great will to play at Wembley", Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said.

Conte's quips during the current campaign have apparently created an air of negativity around the club and the likes of Abramovich will hope that he toes the party line until the summer when he may opt to leave for pastures new.
