League Cup match report Chelsea v Arsenal 10 January 2018

The second leg will be played later this month.

Ultimately Wenger was left defending the commitment of a player whose commitment has certainly not been clear recently.

'To play Arsenal three times in only three weeks is very odd. Referee Martin Atkinson consulted the VARs watching across west London for nearly a minute before deciding against awarding a spot kick.

Chelsea did look more likely to take the lead but was wasteful twice with headers. Cesar Azoplicueta sent in a curler and Fabregas, alone in the six-yard area, headed the ball, somewhat weakly straight into the midriff of Ospina.

Eden Hazard hasn't done much in the second half and was justifiably replaced on 83 minutes by Tiemoure Bakayoko.

It's a policy the boss has never shied away from over the years, but following Arsenal's FA Cup shock exit the League Cup may be Arsenal's best hope of adding another trophy to the cabinet this season.

Sanchez came on halfway through the second half - a decision that was booed by the travelling Arsenal fans - but Wenger defended the decision to drop him, giving a succession of different reasons. We live with facts, not with psychological theories and the fact is when you turn out on the pitch you play football and you give 100 per cent.

"You want first to be solid, ideally you want to score as well".

"It's a shame to lose him when he's in such good form", Wenger said. "It was his good ankle". You know why, because it doesn't matter how long on my contract I have to go if I play the next game for Arsenal.

The second leg is at the Emirates Stadium on January 24.

Arsene Wenger's gamble to play mostly young players, with a few veterans like Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott, in the team's third-round tie backfired spectacularly as Nottingham Forest earned a 4-2 win over the defending FA Cup champions.

Wenger said Wilshere will miss Sunday's Premier League game against Bournemouth.

After an even opening stage, Arsenal had a decent chance in the 22nd minute through Alexandre Lacazette off a brilliant pass from Jack Wilshere but the French striker hit his effort over the bar.
