Chelsea host Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday evening (8pm), with both sides eager to give themselves the best chance of getting their hands on the first silverware of the season.
With Manchester City seemingly unstoppable in the Premier League title race, progressing through to the Carabao Cup final will give both sides the chance to try and lift a trophy.
They will hope Wednesday gives them the chance to put poor FA Cup results behind them, with Chelsea drawing at Norwich and Arsenal losing to Nottingham Forest at the weekend.
The two sides met in the Premier League just last week, drawing 2-2.
