VAR frustration as Chelsea and Arsenal play out stalemate

Five lessons for Arsenal from their last five meetings with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

The 26-year-old was handed the captain's armband for the tie at Stamford Bridge - which ended in a goalless stalemate - but after he went to ground holding his right ankle, the England worldwide grimaced at the thought of another injury lay-off.

Wenger selected Mathieu Debuchy, Per Mertesacker and Rob Holding for Sunday's FA Cup third round clash against Nottingham Forest with Calum Chambers, the manager's only other defensive option rested, but that starting back-three endured a woeful afternoon at the City Ground with Debuchy and Holding both giving away penalties in a 4-2 defeat.

Hazard missed the Blues goalless draw with Norwich in the FA Cup on the weekend.

The Arsenal captain seemed to tweak his ankle slightly after successfully closing down a Cesar Azpilicueta cross, and had to be removed in the 57th minute of a Carabao Cup semi-final first leg. Alvaro Morata will start, dropping Batshuayi to the bench.

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

Andreas Christensen should have had the opener soon after half-time, but he somehow managed to put his back-post header over the bar after a fine flick-on from a set piece.

Morata spurned a host of chances in the recent Premier League meeting between the two sides, but he was enjoying a growing influence on the game and came close to opening the scoring twice in quick succession shortly before the hour mark.

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

However, the Chile worldwide failed to help the visitors produce a goal and the two sides will meet again in two weeks at the Emirates for the second leg.
