Arsenal, without Alexis Sanchez - now a member of Manchester United, at last broke their winless streak last Saturday after the phenomenal first half show that enabled them to rampage over Crystal Palace by 4-1 at The Emirates. Now they hope to maintain that frame of mind into their League Cup second leg of the semi-finals against Chelsea on Wednesday.The Gunners had not managed to win any of their last five matches including the first leg against the Blues which ended in a goalless draw, while they were devastated themselves after a horrible 4-2 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest for the FA Cup thus giving up one of their goals for the season. Considering that they are also too far behind the leaders at the table of the Premier League, the League Cup is their last resort to save the year. We can expect Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to give it all they have.Chelsea had a similar five game bad spell that ended after defeating Brighton 4-0 on Saturday. For whoever watched the game, the score is rather complimentary for the Blues. The real problem here are the performances away from Stamford Bridge. Antonio Conte's men have managed to win only two of the last seven away encounters. They may have lost only one, but the four draws including the last 2-2 at the Emirates in January really hurt them. They may still be third on the table behind Manchester United but they are way too far from the top for any chance for the title.
For Arsenal the Emirates is a stronghold. They have lost only once at home this season while they emerged victorious at 14 out of the 18 encounters they had. They certainly feel more confidence at their own turf, however, their defensive issues may cause concern if Chelsea decide to attack.
