Antonio Conte laments lack of options after 'decisive' Willian injury

Eden Hazard also trained however Chelsea are without both Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas

The World Cup victor has been linked with a potential move to their Premier League rivals Manchester United in recent months. "But at the same time we have to praise the Arsenal team for [reaching] this target". The ricochet landed about five yards out from goal, where Xhaka was able to nudge it past Caballero for a 2-1 advantage. I am perfectly happy with the players I have.

At half-time, Arsene Wenger switched from a 4-3-3 formation to three at the back, which helped Arsenal gain control of the match.

In 2007 they also lost 2-1 to Chelsea having taken an early lead at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, and discussing one of the trophies that has so far eluded him in England, Wenger said: "It's unfinished business, because we didn't win".

"It is a pity because we had a good run in this competition, it is a pity for me, the players and fans".

Getting his head to a Mesut Ozil corner, Nacho Monreal saw his effort come off Marcos Alonso before rebounding a second time, this time in a totally different direction off the head of Antonio Rudiger, before flying into the Chelsea goal.

After one of the most entertaining 0-0 draws in recent memory from the first leg it was all to play for as Chelsea travelled to the Emirates looking to reach their eighth League Cup final. I would be very happy if there are some new players.

"I think Willian's injury was decisive".

They made us work for it, I felt that in the first half there were psychological and tactical reasons for us not expressing the quality of our game.

Arsenal manager Wenger said the victory showed they were over the upheaval caused by Sanchez's move to Manchester United.

Unlike the 2011 final, when Arsenal were the overwhelming favourites to beat Birmingham, the north London outfit will be the underdogs against City.

"Every club tries to find the best solution in the window for the team and I'm sure we are working on it. We have to keep pushing so the next few weeks we have very important games and we need everybody 120 per cent".

"It's not an ideal situation with a couple of guys who aren't in the team [for their clubs] and Tom Heaton who's injured", he said.
