Chelsea boss Conte 'clinging to his job' after latest rant at board

A goalless draw at Stamford Bridge a fortnight ago ensured both teams went into the second leg with realistic hopes of facing Manchester City in the final at Wembley next month, and Eden Hazard gave Chelsea the ideal start when he slotted past David Ospina in the seventh minute.

"There is a big disappointment ... there was great will to play at Wembley", Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said.

Even if Arsenal are under a bad run of form or with an under-strength side, Wenger always know how to deal with Chelsea.

"At this level, we are creating a few more chances and it takes a bit of luck some time".

In 2006/07 Arsenal were beaten in the final by two Didier Drogba goals.

"The team effort in the second half was key when we knew he had to dig deep".

After one of the most entertaining 0-0 draws in recent memory from the first leg it was all to play for as Chelsea travelled to the Emirates looking to reach their eighth League Cup final. "We were a bit scared to go for it and we suffered from that", said Wenger.

It was a hard first half for Arsenal, who struggled to halt waves of Chelsea attacks until they beat visiting goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Barkley, who had not made a competitive appearance this season due to his lengthy recovery from a serious hamstring injury, came on after just 30 minutes when Willian's hamstring tweak forced Antonio Conte into an early substitution.

We conceded two unlucky goals - two deflections are very hard to see during a game.

'My first task is to do my job and be a coach, and to try to improve my players.

It was yet another disappointing end for Conte's side in a cup competition.

"We have some time to prepare for the final".

Unlike the 2011 final, when Arsenal were the overwhelming favourites to beat Birmingham, the north London outfit will be the underdogs against City.

A rejuvenated Arsenal started the second period on the front foot and edged in front in the two-legged tie when Xhaka reacted quickly to prod home a deflected Alexandre Lacazette cross with about half an hour to go.
