Conte admits he has little control over transfers

Conte admits he has little control over transfers”

"The good thing was is that it was 1-1 at half-time and we knew we could do better in the second half, and that's what we did".

The Frenchman's comments were taken as a thinly-veiled criticism of Tottenham and Liverpool, both lauded of late for their attacking football but who have managed to win just two trophies between them since 2008.

There weren't many awful individual performances from Arsenal players, but fans of the North London club have found one to criticise nonetheless.

The final will see Arsenal play Manchester City twice in a week and the naysayers will mark that down as the week where Arsenal's season potentially derails. "We know we have to deal with it now".

Antonio Conte's Chelsea, missing Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas, had the better of the first half and had already had a goal ruled out for offside by the time Eden Hazard opened the scoring in the seventh minute after Pedro released him through the middle.

After winning three FA Cups in the last four seasons, Arsenal now have a chance to add a League Cup, the one English trophy Wenger has never won, to their collection.

The Blues were beaten 2-1 in the second leg of their semi-final after taking the lead at the Emirates Stadium.

Midfielder Xhaka turned predator 15 minutes after halftime to finish from close range and Arsenal stayed rock-solid at the back for the rest of the game to set up an enticing final against Premier League leaders City on February 25.

Chelsea used consecutive head balls from its own defenders to score an own goal against Arsenal.

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

'I'm perfectly happy with the players we have.

Speaking after the game, the Blues' manager reflected on the good run his side had went on in the competition to reach the penultimate stage and how he was pleased with his players' efforts.

"We have some time to prepare for the final". Every Chelsea player, even goalkeeper Willy Caballero, made their way into Arsenal's penalty area, and Barkley went to take the corner.

Unlike the 2011 final, when Arsenal were the overwhelming favourites to beat Birmingham, the north London outfit will be the underdogs against City.

"Obviously we are disappointed and it hurts a lot", he said.
