Arsenal boss Wenger on Alexis Sanchez contract latest and Alex Iwobi

Out of the Premier League title race, eliminated from the FA Cup, competing in the Europa League and with two of the club's star players desperate to leave the Gunners, it's been a rough few months for Wenger and his 22-year spell at Arsenal's helm could well be brought to an end if fans criticism continues to intensify.

Conte had mostly fielded fringe players en route to the last four, but Eden Hazard, back from a calf injury, N'Golo Kante and Thibaut Courtois were called upon with a Wembley showdown against Manchester City or Bristol City in sight.

Moses then went close for Chelsea with a low shot destined for the back of the net only to see effort deflected over by Shkodran Mustafi. From the resultant kick, Christensen was once again remiss in heading wide.
