Granit Xhaka was our unlikely hero as we came from a goal behind against Chelsea to reach the Carabao Cup final.
The Switzerland midfielder scored the winner on the hour mark - his sixth goal for us - to set up a trophy decider against Manchester City at the end of February.
Xhaka had this to say after the game:
on what Arsène Wenger said at half-time…
I think we knew we didn’t play well in the first half and we changed the system in the second half and you can see in the second half we were the better team.
on scoring inside the penalty area rather than outside…
I think it was my second goal for Arsenal inside the box. I am happy, I helped the team and we are happy, we go to Wembley now.
on our good record at Wembley…
I think if you play a final you want to win the trophy, so we go to the game against City and think we can win this game.
