Eden Hazard will lead Chelsea’s attack in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea, without the injured Alvaro Morata and Cesc Fabregas, will play with Pedro – back after suspension – and Willian supporting Hazard up front.

Andreas Christensen went off against Brighton after taking a knock to the head but has been passed fit and starts for the Blues.

Gary Cahill and Danny Drinkwater, who have been nursing slight injuries, are on the bench, as is recent signing Ross Barkley.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are able to include Nacho Monreal, who has recovered from injury in time to play.

Aaron Ramsey, who has been struggling with illness, is among the Gunners’ substitutes.

The tie is finely poised after the first leg at Stamford Bridge ended in a goalless draw.

The winners will face Manchester City in the final. 

Arsenal: Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Elneny, Xhaka, Wilshere, Ozil, Iwobi, Lacazette.
Subs: Macey, Chambers, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Ramsey, Nelson, Nketiah.

Chelsea: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Moses, Bakayoko, Kante, Alonso; Willian, Hazard, Pedro.
Subs: Eduardo, Cahill, David Luiz, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Barkley, Batshuayi.
