Source: BBC SPORT (http://news.bbc.co.uk) - Wayne Bridge's late goal stunned Arsenal and sent Chelsea into the Champions League semi-finals. The England defender rifled home a left-foot finish on 87 minutes after being set up by Eidur Gudjohnsen to end Arsenal's unbeaten run against Chelsea. In an enthralling match, Jose Antonio Reyes fired Arsenal into the lead from close range in first-half injury time. But Frank Lampard drew the Blues level after an Jens Lehmann error before Bridge sealed a famous win.

With 10 minutes remaining, Dennis Bergkamp came on for Henry for Arsenal, while Chelsea brought Joe Cole and Hernan Crespo for Duff and Hasselbaink. Chelsea pressed again, and Ashley Cole made a fantastic goal-line clearance at full stretch from Gudjohnsen as the home side's defence disintegrated on 85 minutes. But Bridge popped up two minutes later with a classy left-foot finish after a perfect one-two with Gudjohnsen to stun Arsenal.
