 Football Pundit Andy Townsend voiced after that match: "It's a brilliant result,"


"They went behind, came back and did it that hard way.

"On the back of Alexis Sanchez going it's a fantastic answer from the rest of the camp how united they are, how they believe in what they are doing and how good they can be.


"Whenever Arsenal play against Chelsea and win it's significant, so to do so in the semi-final of the League Cup is bonus territory."

Last night’s victory over Chelsea presents the chance to Arsene Wenger to life the cup for the first time in his prolonged 21 year stint at Arsenal.

Andy Townsend believes that this season Arsenal has got the real chance to register this trophy to their name.


He added: "Serious Arsenal fans understand that this is one of the trophies they can go and win,"

"At the start of the season, even the staunchest of Arsenal fans would have thought they could win the league.
