Victor Moses: Chelsea primed facing Arsenal for Cup semi

"We can't do that again this season but our aim now is to win the other two cup competitions we are still in".

With that said, odds of 4/6 on their being more than 2.5 goals in the game seems like a brilliant offer.

Both sides warmed up for the match with impressive wins on Saturday, when Chelsea put four past Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal did the same against Crystal Palace.

Both Arsenal goals received a helping hand from Chelsea defender Antonio Ruediger as the semifinal meeting of London rivals came to life after a sterile, scoreless first leg two weeks ago. Blues boss Antonio Conte admitted as much afterwards when he called Arsenal "lucky".

Arsene Wenger's injury woes have eased up considerably ahead of the visit of Chelsea on Wednesday. We never were in this race (to acquire the Arsenal forward).

Ozil, in particular, will be key, with his link-up with Lacazette as well as his creative abilities, which could make all the difference in the end. 'I think when you go in the transfer market you have to know that, if you want the best, you have to spend a lot of money.

Bellerin and Maitland-Niles will probably start in the wing-back positions.

"He needs to play regularly and to go to Newcastle is a great challenge for him", Conte said of Kenedy.

Chelsea have struggled without an in-form Morata, with the club scoring just three times in five games since the turn of the year before their 4-0 win over Brighton at the weekend. But, Andreas Christensen is fit and available after initially giving Conte a scare with his head injury.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has recovered in time for the game.

Victor Moses remains the first choice wing-back for Conte and he should start on the right flank while Marcos Alonso, who has been one of the best in his role in England this season, will start as a wing-back on the left flank.

The match could also serve as the debut for Ross Barkley after the new signing missed out on his chance against the Seagulls. He should be supported by a midfield duo of N'Golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko, who will add some mettle to their lineup.

However, Wenger and his team have shown that they can always find something from within in big games, as last season's FA Cup semi and final against City and Chelsea proved.

And on whether Arsenal are favorites against Chelsea, Arsène Wenger stated: "Honestly, I don't see any favourite in that tie".

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