Chelsea captain, Gary Cahill insists Arsenal have no psychological edge over the Blues ahead of their semifinal Carabao Cup clash next year.
Chelsea beat Bournemouth 2-1, to set up the clash against Arsenal, who beat West Ham. 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.
Cahill believes any talk of the Gunners holding a mental advantage is wide of the mark.
“We have played Arsenal many times and we know what to expect. The first leg is at home and that will be massively important. These are two big teams going at it.
“We know it will be a tough test. You expect to see big teams in the semi-finals of cup competitions, even though clubs change their sides up.
“You still expect the big teams to have enough to get through and that’s what’s happened with our semi-final.”
