Chelsea and Arsenal will be up against each other in the Carabao Cup, and both teams will be gunning for a win after a goalless draw in the league just a week ago.

Antonio Conte opted to use a weakened squad in the goalless draw against Norwich in the third round of the FA Cup, but the Chelsea manager has vowed to field a full strength team against the Gunners.

Conte said in his press conference: “I think that in every game we have to try to make a strong team, and if you play the league, if you play in FA Cup, or Carabao Cup, I think when you play every three days it’s important to make the rotation, but at the same time your team must be very strong, otherwise you risk dropping out of the competition.

“Tomorrow is another important game, semi-final in CC, it’s a trophy and we deserve to stay here and tomorrow to play the game against Arsenal.”
