CHELSEA should pile more pressure on Arsene Wenger on Wednesday by taking a giant leap towards Wembley.

The London giants meet in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg and it’s the Blues who look in better shape.

Both sides fielded weakened line-ups in the FA Cup on Saturday but while Chelsea were held 0-0 at Norwich the Gunners were embarrassed 4-2 at Nottingham Forest.

There were loud calls for Wenger’s head and with the league gone this is his only chance of domestic silverware.

Arsenal have won just one of their last nine visits to Stamford Bridge and a Chelsea side with one defeat since November look a good bet at 4-5 and 4-6 at McBookie to reach the Final.

The sides drew 2-2 in a thriller at the Emirates a couple of weeks ago but Chelsea were better before conceding an injury-time equaliser.

Alvaro Morata will return to the starting line-up and will be keen to atone for the sitters he missed in that stalemate. He is 4-1 to net first.

Penalty taker Eden Hazard is an alternative at 9-2 and is 5-4 to net.

The defeat at Forest added to the gloom at the Emirates with Alexis Sanchez and Mezut Ozil unsettled and even a return to the Champions League is looking unlikely. Confidence or a lack of it is reflected in the prices with the Gunners 21-5 and the draw 4-1 with McBookie.

First legs are usually cagey with last season’s two going under 2.5 but the Gunners have conceded 12 five since their last clean sheet against West Ham in the quarters.

They’ve netted 11 in that spell so over 2.5 match goals at 3-4 has a chance while both teams to score pays 8-11.
