Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal dealing with losing great player in Sanchez

City overcame West Brom, Wolves and Leicester before beating Bristol City 5-3 over two legs in the semi-final.

Arsenal stole one back moments, when Antonio Rudiger unfortunately deflected the ball into his own net, after a Nacho Monreal header had rebounded off Marcos Alonso, onto Rudiger and subsequently past a bemused Willy Caballero.

Wenger went on to express delight that Arsenal will be heading back to Wembley Stadium.

Arsenal will now battle Manchester City for the first piece of silverware of the season.

Sanchez joined Manchester United on Monday in a swap deal which saw Armenia global Henrikh Mkhitaryan move the other way.

Eden Hazard gave them the lead after just seven minutes, and despite Arsenal scoring an equaliser five minutes later, Chelsea were in complete control for most of the first-half. We know City are a good team, but we will go there to win. I am perfectly happy with the players we have.

Even if Arsenal are under a bad run of form or with an under-strength side, Wenger always know how to deal with Chelsea.

They made us work for it, I felt that in the first half there were psychological and tactical reasons for us not expressing the quality of our game. Chelsea needed a goal to take the tie to extra-time and had a corner.

Ross Barkley came on for his Chelsea debut, after signing from Everton for £15m earlier this month, and it's fair to say he'll have better games for the club. "Also in the second half I saw a lot of balance".

Chelsea threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser, but Arsene Wenger's troops remained resolute to claim the win and their spot in the final.

With Wilshere having started each of the Gunners' last nine Premier League games, the England manager offered some positive words ahead of the World Cup. "They are a strong side, they look unstoppable, but at the end of the day we have one chance to beat them and if you play at your best, that is what we will try to do".

Redknapp, who believes Conte has been "undermined", says he can not envision the 48-year-old remaining in his post beyond the end of the season.

"The club will inform you if there is news", Conte said.
