Cesar Azpilicueta calls on Chelsea to bounce back from Arsenal defeat

Antonio Conte blames Chelsea's Carabao Cup exit on Willian injury

Arsenal were gifted an equaliser in the 12th minute when Nacho Monreal's header was deflected into the net by Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger.

Alex Iwobi had a golden chance to seal the win with about a quarter of an hour to go but Caballero made a fine save to keep Chelsea in the tie.

Egypt global Elneny is undoubtedly a limited player but he offers more positional discipline than departed defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin and he showed his capabilities of performing when it really matters.

Wembley Stadium will host the 57th instalment of the League Cup final, which kicks off at 4.30pm on Sunday 25 January.

The final will see Arsenal play Manchester City twice in a week and the naysayers will mark that down as the week where Arsenal's season potentially derails.

Even if Arsenal are under a bad run of form or with an under-strength side, Wenger always know how to deal with Chelsea. "We were a bit scared to go for it and we suffered from that", said Wenger.

The two London sides came into the clash evenly poised after they drew 0-0 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

"Barkley has a lot of space for improvement, he is working with us only two weeks but for sure today I was forced to make this substitution, but he can improve a lot", he said.

It was a whirlwind opening to the game as Arsenal equalised just four minutes later thanks to a comical own goal from Antonio Ruediger.

So Luiz is hopeful another manager will come in in the summer and give him more game time as he starts football life in his 30's.

That was the beginning of the end for the Blues and Conte's record against us continues to look rather sickly.

"The club will inform you if there is news", Conte said. "I'm the coach. My task is to try to do the best for this club, to try to improve my players for this club". Conte had to order him to disrobe roughly ten times before the order finally reached the former Everton midfielder.

It's also thought that Ross Barkley is not someone the manager wanted to sign - and his comments about Michy Batshuayi and his out and out refusal to play for forward has raised eyebrows both from the fans and also in the club.
