Antonio Conte confirms two key Chelsea FC players to miss Arsenal clash

Antonio Conte confirms two key Chelsea FC players to miss Arsenal clash

Arsenal face Chelsea in the second leg of their Carabao Cup tie on Wednesday, with the winners going to Wembley next month.

The north Londoners signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United to reinforce their attack in the winter transfer window but the Armenian worldwide will have to wait for his debut because he is cup tied.

Arsenal and Chelsea have both made the League Cup final on seven previous occasions - only four teams have reached the final more times (Liverpool 12, Manchester United 9, Aston Villa 8, Tottenham 8).

And just in case you wanted more than one source, just to be sure, Il Tempo on Tuesday also run a similar story, with the headline "Roma-Chelsea, all done for Dzeko", while Il Messaggero state the Bosnian is "basically a Chelsea player". "Arsenal have other players but Sanchez is special".

There are some good omens in Arsenal's favour, namely last season's FA Cup semifinal victory over Guardiola's City.

Sevilla are considering other options in the January window whilst they continue to wait for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

However, Andreas Christensen (head) is available for selection.

The Italian revealed that Morata has a back injury, having been suspended for the 4-0 win at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, while Fabregas is still struggling with a hamstring problem. Therefore it may well be the long-standing Arsenal manager's final realistic opportunity to bask in the glow of silverware on February 25. His link-up with Alexandre Lacazette has been consistently improving, and that looks like the only way Arsenal can secure the big win against the Blues.

Now, Arsene Wenger has given another boost with some positives on the team news front.

Antonio Conte admits Chelsea couldn't compete with Manchester United for Sanchez.
