Arsenal Overcome Chelsea To Storm Carabao Finals

Arsenal set up a final against Manchester City after coming from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal.

After a goalless first leg, Chelsea took the lead in the tie when Tiemoue Bakayoko played the ball into Pedro and he released Eden Hazard, who slotted past David Ospina from 12 yards out.

But the advantage only lasted five minutes before Nacho Monreal’s header bounced off Marcos Alonso and then Antonio Rudiger and into the net.

There was also a touch of fortune about the Gunners’ second as Alexandre Lacazette’s pull-back rebounded off Rudiger and Granit Xhaka pounced from close range to send the Gunners to Wembley.

Arsenal will now face Manchester City on Sunday February 25, 2018.
