Arsenal began life after Alexis Sanchez Darian Stewart Authentic Jersey with a comeback victory over London rivals Chelsea to reach their first League Cup final in seven years.
Following a goalless first leg at Stamford Kyle Lowry Youth jersey Bridge, this instalment of the semi-final was more akin to the lively Premier League meeting here just 21 days ago and it was Granit Xhaka's second half strike which set up a Wembley meeting with Manchester City on February 25.
Eden Hazard put the Blues into an early lead only for Arsenal to level through an Antonio Rudiger own goal Brandon Saad Authentic Jersey before Xhaka settled the tie on the hour mark to seal a 2-1 win.
The Gunners were without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, their new signing watching from the stands as he is cup-tied having played in the competition for Manchester United before completing his swap deal with http://www.officialauthenticshoppanthers.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_DEREK_ANDERSON_JERSEY.html Sanchez on Monday Art Monk Jersey night.
Arsene Wenger's side won the FA Cup last season by beating Manchester City in the semi-finals and Premier League champions Chelsea in the final and they will have to do it the hard way to lift this trophy for the first time during the Frenchman's 21-year reign.
Arsenal have not lost to Chelsea in their last six meetings and recovered well from a slow start to extend that run and book a date at Wembley next month.
Pedro tucked away an early chance for Antonio Conte's side only to be correctly flagged for offside - but the Spaniard was soon involved again, picking the ball up in plenty of space to pick a pass through for Hazard to open the scoring.
Willy Caballero showed great awareness to keep Arsenal out from their first meaningful attack, first blocking http://www.mavericksteamonline.com/Steve_Nash_Jersey at the feet of http://www.hockeyofficialonline.com/T-Shirts/Pittsburgh_Penguins.html Jack Wilshere before diving to push the ball clear with Alexandre Lacazette lurking.
Arsenal were soon on level terms, Mesut Ozil whipping in a free-kick which was met by an unmarked Nacho Monreal, whose header ricocheted off both Marcos Alonso and Rudiger before beating Caballero.
Willian dragged a shot well wide as Chelsea looked to reestablish their early lead before both sides settled into the contest.
