After a tense 0-0 draw in the first leg, Al Hain-Cole expects the Gunners and Conte's men to open up in an entertaining second leg in North London

After a goalless first leg, Arsenal and Chelsea have everything to play for when they meet at the Emirates Stadium in Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final.

That match was the fourth meeting between the teams already this season, each of which has resulted in a draw.

Match Odds

However, having lost just one of their last 23 matches in front of their own fans, the Gunners are on offer at 2/1 (3.00) with dabblebet to make the most of home advantage by coming out on top in this one.

Nevertheless, Antonio Conte's men have suffered just one defeat in their previous eight visits to this ground, and are 7/5 (2.40) favourites to take their place in the final with a victory here.

The guests have actually drawn five of their last six fixtures in all competitions, and there are odds of 12/5 (3.40) available on them taking this one into extra-time with yet another stalemate.

Team News

Aaron Ramsey should be in contention after missing Saturday's win over Crystal Palace through illness, while Nacho Monreal is also hoping to be fit despite going off injured in that match.

New signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan - received from Manchester United in exchange for Alexis Sanchez - will have to wait for his Gunners debut as he featured for the Red Devils in their 2-1 quarter-final loss at Bristol City.

The Blues will welcome back Pedro and Alvaro Morata from suspension, although the latter joins Cesc Fabregas on the injury list whilst Danny Drinkwater and Gary Cahill are both doubtful.

Goals in store

Taking place exactly a week after putting on a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium, this pair's 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge in the first leg came as something of a let down.

However, having both put in exciting four-goal performances in the Premier League this weekend, another entertaining encounter seems far more likely in North London.

Indeed, Arsene Wenger's side has seen 15 goals scored in just the last three fixtures on home turf, while their opponents have produced four per match in three of their last four on the road against top flight opposition.

Tips and Predictions

With both teams fighting for a place in the final, odds of 4/5 (1.80) offer solid value on at least three goals being scored for their third successive meeting at this ground.
