Chelsea v Arsenal: Expect action in cup semi-final
Chelsea and Arsenal meet again just one week after their 2-2 thriller at the Emirates Stadium. But this time, there’s a place in the Carabao Cup final up for grabs.

That means Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding could keep their places despite poor displays in last weekend’s shock 4-2 defeat to Nottingham Forest.
Eden Hazard tends to like facing Arsenal. He’s struck in three of their last five visits to Stamford Bridge. The Belgian ace is 6/4 to score Anytime.
