Alexis Sanchez made his final Arsenal appearance in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi final with Chelsea.

The Chilean is now a Manchester United player as playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is now a Gunner.

However, Mkhitaryan is cup tied and won’t feature in the tie, but Chelsea manager Antonio Conte doesn’t see this as a plus.

Asked if it is a plus for Chelsea that Sanchez and Mkhitaryan won’t play, Conte said: “Arsenal has a good squad in the league.

“Sanchez only played ten minutes in the Carabao Cup. He played against us in the league.

“Now I don’t see any advantage in this situation.”
