How to follow Chelsea vs Arsenal in India

How to follow Chelsea vs Arsenal in India

The Arsenal captain seemed to tweak his ankle slightly after successfully closing down a Cesar Azpilicueta cross, and had to be removed in the 57th minute of a Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

After a tepid opening from Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette escaped the Chelsea defence to collect Jack Wilshere's pass, but the French striker wasted the chance as he scuffed a hurried shot wide.

This means it is all to play for at the Emirates, when both sides face each other again in two weeks.

Conte has opted for a strong side that includes Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard in attack, while Danny Drinkwater comes into the midfield in place of Tiemoue Bakayoko, who was ineffective against the Gunners last week.

Hazard missed Saturday's FA Cup third-round 0-0 at Norwich City with a minor injury but is due to return for the game at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, meanwhile, who is engulfed in a war of words with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, off late, has mentioned that winning the semi-final first leg at home will give his side oodles of confidence.

Martin Atikinson consulted VAR as Arsenal supporters chanted the name of the trialled technology but the referee stuck with his initial decision of no penalty.

With one minute left in the first halftime, Cesc Fabregas should have given Chelsea the lead but headed straight at David Ospina.

Chelsea resumed on the front foot and saw another aerial chance go begging when Christensen nodded over from close range.

In the absence of Wilshere, Arsenal looked even less likely to regain their earlier control and Mustafi blocked from Moses before Christensen again showed himself to be nowhere near as adept in the opposition box as in his own with another limp header.
