How to follow Chelsea vs Arsenal in India

"The only thing I want to say is the performance of Alexis and the commitment does not depend on the duration of his contract, it just depends on the fact that when he's on the pitch he wants to play".

The second leg of the semi-final will be played at the Emirates on January 24.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the introduction of a Video Assistant Referee system in English football is a welcome move after the technology was used in his side's League Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Wednesday.

The victor will face either Manchester City or Bristol City.

When asked if there was truth in the reports that Coquelin is going to Valencia, Wenger replied: "Yes".

"I could see him (Atkinson) talking to somebody in his ear but I got the ball clearly so I wasn't anxious".

Conte anticipates Arsenal will field their best available team for tonight's game, and although this is the second of three meetings this month with the Gunners, it is the schedule rather than familiarity that is setting the challenge.

Eden Hazard hasn't done much in the second half and was justifiably replaced on 83 minutes by Tiemoure Bakayoko.

The match was the fourth draw played between the club's this season.

One concern for Arsenal was Jack Wilshere's substitution in the second-half as the midfielder limped off with an ankle injury. "It was his good ankle". It also offers his only prospect of domestic silverware this season, since Arsenal's FA Cup defense ended at the first hurdle at Nottingham Forest on Sunday and the team is sixth in the Premier League. For us it's simple to prepare for the game because you know the team and the way they are playing.

The League Cup is the only domestic competition Wenger hasn't won in more than 21 years at Arsenal.

Chances were few and far between as the number of matches played recently took its toll, with both teams looking sluggish.
