Chelsea will get their revenge on London rivals Arsenal by beating them to reach the Carabao Cup Final according to the results of a series of exclusive Chelsea Presser fan polls.
The Blues suffered FA Cup Final agony to The Gunners under the famous Wembley arch a little under eight months ago while Arsene Wenger’s men also beat Chelsea in the FA Community Shield in August.
The two sides meet in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday evening with the scores tied at 0-0. Ahead of the match, we asked Blues fans whether they think that their side will qualify for the final. Fans voted in their usual high numbers with a whopping 93% indicating that they expect Chelsea to emerge victorious from the tie.
In a second fan poll, we asked fans how many goals they think Chelsea will score against The Gunners. Two or three goals was the most favourable outcome with 71% of the votes while 11% think that Antonio Conte’s men could even score four of more. Just 14% of the votes represented an Arsenal clean sheet while 4% anticipate just the one Chelsea goal.
Finally, with veteran keeper Willy Caballero having proved to be an able deputy for first choice keeper Thibaut Courtois at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, we asked fans whether the Argentine should start again against The Gunners. Fans were unsure on this matter with just 52% indicating that Caballero should start.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 8pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football channels.
