On the other hand, Chelsea defeated Bournemouth 2-1 at their stadium, Stamford Bridge, while Bristol City continued their awesome run in the competition, defeating the reigning champions, Manchester United, 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Korey Smith.

A stoppage-time goal from Alvaro Morata sealed Chelsea's place in the last four of the League Cup where they will take on their London rivals.

Bristol pulled off a huge upset over Manchester United tonight, and in the process became just the second ever lower division side to knock off four top flight clubs in the same League Cup tournament.

The League Cup semifinals are set and it's Chelsea versus Arsenal on one side. The blues have only won one out of their last five matches against Arsenal, losing the FA Cup final to Wenger's men last season.

"They've done very well against us lately, especially at Wembley but if I put myself in the Arsenal camp, I don't think it's ideal for them to play us over two legs". Paul Pogba wins a free-kick on the edge of the box and Ibrahimovic pulls rank, and as well he might as he thumps the ball into the far corner through a thread-bare Bristol City wall.

"You still expect the big teams to have enough to get through and that's what's happened with our semi-final".
