VAR frustration as Chelsea and Arsenal play out stalemate

Chelsea will host Arsenal in the first leg of a Carabao Cup semifinal tie on Wednesday.

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

Arsenal enters this game after crashing out of the FA Cup against Nottingham Forest over the weekend.

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.

The Chile worldwide, who started last Saturday's 2-2 Premier League draw with Antonio Conte's side, will start among the substitutes at Stamford Bridge.

Moses then went close for Chelsea with a low shot destined for the back of the net only to see effort deflected over by Shkodran Mustafi.

N'Golo Kante was the next to threaten with a wayward drive which flew over the crossbar before Arsenal registered their one and only shot on target of the first half as Alex Iwobi's strike from the edge of the box was parried away by Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses forced David Ospina into action with a stinging drive that the Arsenal goalkeeper fumbled before recovering to snatch the ball away from Morata.

The best chance of the evening fell to former Gunners man Cesc Fabregas, who wasted a great header after being picked out in the box by Cesar Azpilicueta.
