Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger sent Jack Wilshere warning by Martin Keown

Jack Wilshere limped off with an ankle sprain during Carabao Cup semi-final first leg draw at on Wednesday night, and is a doubt for this weekend's trip to.

Danny Welbeck then stepped up for Arsenal to pull one back in the 78th minute.

Despite failing to capitalise on home advantage ahead of the second leg at the Emirates Stadium on January 24, Conte does not feel as though the advantage in the tie now lies with Arsenal. "When you have the chance you have to score, especially in these games". Quizzed on whether selecting Iwobi sent a mixed message on team discipline, Wenger said: "There's one thing to punish someone individually and a second thing to punish everybody".

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base.

"That you cannot intervene straight away is a bit frustrating".

Arsenal fans will have their fingers crossed that Wenger's prediction is right, and with an England World Cup squad place to fight for, Wilshere will be hoping to be back on the pitch sooner rather than later.

The Frenchman, who has been the Gunners' manager since 1996, is contracted until 2019, having extended his stay last year.

Barkley, who joined Chelsea from Everton last week, is still recovering from a hamstring injury that has prevented him from making a competitive appearance this season. Have you seen how he came on today, how he warmed up?

"He can make a difference between what's going on outside and what's happening". That's what he does.

'I hope all the best for him and as a striker it is like this, sometimes you score, sometimes you don't score, but his effort for the team is good and he always tries, and I think if he scores one again then everything will be fine. Antonio Conte said afterwards that for Morata, the goals were coming, but this evening, against the same opponent, back at Stamford Bridge, was little improvement. The League Cup is the only domestic competition Wenger hasn't won in more than 21 years at Arsenal.

"It's a shame to lose him when he's in such a good form".
