Arsenal know how to deal with the loss of Sanchez - Wenger

David Silva of Manchester City and Alexandre Lacazette battle for possession during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal at Etihad Stadium on November 5, 2017 in Manchester, England. "Even in this case, we go from one cup to another and we have to look forward and go for it and get a win, too, for confidence". We knew we could do better in the second half and that is what we did.

"We lost a great player in Alexis Sanchez but when a team doesn't know what's going on in the dressing room there is less clarity and focus on performances".

Second half we improved and took the lead on 60 mins, another deflection and Xhaka was on hand to steer the ball home.

But Arsenal levelled just minutes later after a weird Rudiger own goal.

A deep corner was met by Nacho Monreal whose header cannoned off the head of Marcos Alonso before ricocheting of Rudiger to leave Chelsea keeper Willy Caballero stranded.

"Barkley has a lot of space for improvement, he is working with us only two weeks but for sure today I was forced to make this substitution, but he can improve a lot", he said.

But now this vital victory keeps them on course to win their fourth trophy in five years - and with it claim the only domestic competition that Arsene Wenger has not won in his 21 years at the club.

We conceded two unlucky goals - two deflections are very hard to see during a game.

The semi-final tie against the Blues was poised at 0-0 following the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

"For me, he is a special manager, but everyone sometimes makes a mistake and for me, he made a mistake to talk about us or a different team".

Defeat for Conte continues his miserable record as a manager of never winning a cup despite league success with both Juventus and Chelsea.

"The club will inform you if there is news", Conte said. "They were a bit unfortunate and I think when Willian went off, it affected the flow of the game and it brought Arsenal back into it because their movement was really good". "We got Henrikh Mkhitaryan in and I have a strong squad".

He had time to boil a kettle and take another touch but he rather rushed his effort.
