Arsenal make the short trip across London to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg in a bid to reach Wembley, where they beat Chelsea in the Community Shield in their last trip to the home of football.

The Gunners have a good record against the Blues in cup competitions recently, beating them in their last three meetings outside the Premier League, including last season’s FA Cup finals.
