Jack Wilshere limps out of Arsenal's clash against Chelsea with ankle injury

This is my only worry, not that we are playing three games versus Arsenal, but because we are playing three massive games in a short time and we have to play the league and we have to play FA Cup'.

However, Wilshere barely lasted 60 seconds of action and play had to be stopped as the midfielder was seen holding his troublesome ankle. I want to win the game and I commit like I stay forever. And it can be argued that players such as Reis Nelson, Joe Willock, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Eddie Nketiah deserve to have their crack at the Blues in the semi-final.

Wenger extended his contract at the Emirates at the end of last season but he's found himself under more pressure than ever before after watching his side crash out of the FA Cup to Championship side Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon.

The Premier League giants clash in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi final on Wednesday January 10. Indeed, Arsenal have a fight on their hands to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, while they will also hope to challenge for the Europa League having qualified for the knockout stage with a minimum of fuss before Christmas.

"I am pleased with the spirit and determination", Wenger said.

Arsene Wenger insisted that his surprising decision to bench Alexis Sanchez at Chelsea on Wednesday night "had nothing to do" with negotiations with Manchester City for his imminent transfer.

We must be more clinical offensively otherwise if you don't score and you are unlucky the game finishes as a draw.

After a tepid opening from Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette escaped the Chelsea defence to collect Jack Wilshere's pass, but the French striker wasted the chance as he scuffed a hurried shot wide.

Andreas Christensen fared no better after the interval when the Chelsea defender dived to head over from inside the six-yard box.

With one minute left in the first halftime, Cesc Fabregas should have given Chelsea the lead but headed straight at David Ospina.

Moses had an excellent effort goal-bound but Shkodran Mustafi tipped the ball away for a corner.
