Arsenal hold Chelsea to stalemate in EFL Cup semi-final

Arsenal and Chelsea played out a goalless draw, in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final clash on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.

Chances were few and far between as the number of matches played recently took its toll, with both teams looking sluggish.

A year ago, when he was also serving a touchline ban, Wenger crept to his seat beside the corporate area in the East Stand at Stamford Bridge and was welcomed with a handshake by an Arsenal supporter.

It represented a restoration of pride for Wenger and Arsenal after their weekend FA Cup humiliation at the hands of Nottingham Forest and they will welcome their rivals to north London in two weeks' time with hopes of a fourth domestic knockout cup in five seasons firmly intact.

The Chile worldwide, who started last Saturday's 2-2 Premier League draw with Antonio Conte's side, will start among the substitutes at Stamford Bridge.

Moses' Super Eagles teammate Iwobi had an attempt from range in the 38th minute only to see his shot punched away by Thibaut Courtois.

Wilshere went down after blocking a cross from Victor Moses and tried to shake the injury off in the next couple of minutes.

It was Chelsea who continued to look the most like scoring, though, and Moses saw a vicious low drive deflected over from Mustafi before Ospina was left in no-man's land from the resulting corner, only for Christensen to plant his header wide of the target with the goal gaping.

The London teams reconvened seven days on from a scintillating 2-2 Premier League draw at Emirates Stadium but this encounter failed to hit those heights, instead repeating the scoreline from a September stalemate on this ground.

Arsenal and Chelsea finished the match with a 0-0 draw ahead of the second leg on January 24.
