Arsenal is one win from its first League Cup final since 2011 after dispatching West Ham United 1-0 via a Danny Welbeck goal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

The Gunners last won the League Cup in 1993, are just 2-5 in finals.

West Ham mustered just one shot and won zero corner kicks on the day, to Arsenal’s eight and six on a day with several backups for both sides.

It might not’ve been the prettiest thing, but Welbeck shows outstanding control to take down Mathieu Debuchy’s headed pass and bundle it over the line.
