Baba Rahman

While Arsenal have just let Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United, Chelsea will be without Morata through injury. They are not available for the Arsenal game.

The Gunners face Chelsea in a Carabao Cup clash with a trip to Wembley to play a final awaiting the victor.

"Morata and Fabregas are out".

Reports linking Luis Enrique to Chelsea have intensified this week, amidst claims the Blues are lining up the team of the former Barcelona boss andJuliano Belletti as potential replacements for Antonio Conte.

"Morata has a problem in his back. Then I have to check a couple of situations [in terms of injuries to other players]".

Much like their hosts on Wednesday night, Antonio Conte's men successfully ended their own individual poor run of form at an important time.

Asked about the fitness of his squad, Conte replied: 'Morata and Fabregas are out. The game was different and in this case you have two games to reach the final to play.

The EFL have supplied the Gunners with Carabao branded graphics to display on the two big screens inside the ground as and when the referee consults VAR. "Arsenal will also want to go to the final". Although the defending Premier League champions may face a tough round of 16 Champions League tie against European heavyweights Barcelona, Chelsea too will have their sights set on securing a top-four finish at the end of the season.

"The second leg will certainly be more open, it should be much spectacular than the first one".

'Our job is not simple and you have to make the best decisions every time for the team and try to improve your players.

It's an important game and we want to go to the final.
