Arsenal to win 2-1 @ 10/1 with Coral

Arsenal and Chelsea meet in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi final at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. Everything is still to play for after a stalemate at Stamford Bridge recently, and there is no sign yet of who will progress to meet either Manchester City or Bristol City in the final at Wembley.

Both of these sides answered their critics with emphatic wins over relegation-threatened sides in the Premier League last weekend. For the Gunners, that result offered some reassurance that life after Alexis Sanchez will be okay once he completes his switch to Manchester United in the coming days. Arsene Wenger will not have prioritised this competition, but winning it may ease some of the pressure on him; we think Arsenal will progress here.

Form

The aforementioned positive result for Arsenal came against Crystal Palace; it was 4-1, with all of their goals coming in the first half. Before that, though, the Gunners had been on a run of poor form which had seen them fail to win since beating Palace at Sekhurst Park in December. Their Champions League chances appear in tatters.

Chelsea, too, had a point to prove and did so at Brighton on Saturday lunchtime. Eden Hazard inspired them to a 4-0 win at the Amex Stadium, ending a run of four straight draws, three of which were 0-0. Antonio Conte has had to deal with some questions over the last few weeks.

Arsenal have no fresh worries ahead of this game, but Chelsea will be able to welcome back both Pedro and Alvaro Morata from suspensions after they were sent off in the FA Cup third round replay against Norwich last week.
