Reigning EPL champions Chelsea have blown their home field advantage as they fluffed a myriad of opportunities before closing out a 0-0 draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their English League Cup semi final.
Despite enjoying the majority of possession, Chelsea battled to break down the Gunners and will feel like it was the game that got away.
Defender Andreas Christensen and veteran Cesc Fabregas both wasted golden opportunities for the hosts, both failing to find the target with headers.
For Arsenal, while they lacked any real thrust with the ball on offence, is was a resolute defensive effort that now gives them a slight advantage as they the head home for the second leg of the tie in two weeks time.
