Arsenal vs Chelsea, Man City vs Bristol Set for League Cup Semifinals

Ross Barkley is nearing full fitness after a hamstring injury

Arsenal also picked up a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge when the sides last faced off in the Premier League, making it just one defeat in five against Antonio Conte's men.

Arsenal found things a little more comfortable with a 1-0 win in another London derby, against West Ham United, on Tuesday.

Cahill believes any talk of the Gunners holding a mental advantage is wide of the mark.

It will then be implemented for the second-leg and during the final at Wembley on February 25.

'But if you look at what's happened over the last 10-15 matches between us, we have had good games too.

"We have played Arsenal many times and we know what to expect".

'Last season we were able to win the league and to reach the FA Cup final as well - it was a great achievement for us. The first leg is at home and that will be massively important.

As well as the two legs of the Carabao Cup on the weeks commencing January 8 and January 22, Arsenal host Chelsea in the league on January 3.

On paper, there are two strong teams there that you would ideally like to avoid, and another that would pretty much give you free passage into the Carabao Cup final.

The other semi-final tie sees Chelsea face London rivals Arsenal for a place in the final of the competition.
