Arsene Wenger revealed a sense of unfinished business with the League Cup after Arsenal reached next month's final at Wembley with a 2-1 defeat of Chelsea. In their first fixture since the Alexis Sanchez's transfer to Manchester United, Arsenal impressed at The Emirates through an own goal from Antonio Rudiger and Granit Xhaka's finish after Eden Hazard had given Chelsea the lead.
They will contest the final against Manchester City on February 25, having last reached it in 2011, when a late defensive blunder gifted Birmingham an unexpected 2-1 victory in one of the most damaging defeats of Wenger's managerial reign. "It's unfinished business, because we didn't win," Wenger said.
"We are again at Wembley and many times we were there, but now we are in it, we want to win it and we will play against a very strong side, so it could become a very interesting game. "We are out of the FA Cup and so I will focus on the League Cup, and you can see that Manchester City do the same, so it is difficult to win trophies in England."
