Roared on by several thousand Arsenal supporters in the Park Lane stand, Kyle Bartley, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Rhys Murphy scored to put Arsenal through to the last four.

Chelsea led 2-0 before goals from Jonas Rasmussen, Benik Afobe, Murphy and Freeman (pen) earned Arsenal maximum points.

On Saturday morning the Gunners, who are 17 points clear of second-placed Crystal Palace entertain Fulham.
