Arsenal came from behind in the final of the EFL Cup to claim a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the second leg of their semi-final at the Emirates Stadium last night.

After the first leg ended goalless a fortnight ago, the two London rivals met for the fifth time this season and the third time in January alone, with each previous contest ending all square.

Arsenal finally ended the season-long stalemate between the clubs, though, with Granit Xhaka the unlikely scorer of the winner after an Antonio Rudiger own goal had cancelled out Eden Hazard’s opener in an action-packed start to the match.

The Gunners – who have never won the competition under Arsene Wenger – will now take on Manchester City in the final at Wembley on February 25.
