Wenger - How I assess the balance of the tie

After our Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea ended goalless, it is hard to assess who will be happier about the result ahead of the decider in two weeks’ time.

Arsene Wenger was pleased with the way his side performed at Stamford Bridge, and said that all he is thinking about is winning the second leg rather than any balance of power.

“I felt that we performed well, it was a very intense game where we were very well organised and had a great solidarity in the team,” the manager told Arsenal Player.

“We are used to scoring of course, so we are a bit frustrated we didn’t score, but overall I think the team performance was very positive and very good.

“We play at home in [the second leg] in a game we want to win. We have to win to qualify for the final, so let’s do the job .

“Overall I believe that it is of course a good opportunity for us to go to Wembley where we want to go, but we know that Chelsea are a dangerous side, so that is why it is important until then that we win our Premier League games and prepare after.”
