Arsene Wenger’s young Arsenal side continued their impressive play in the Carling Cup last night by demolishing Tottenham in extra time. Arsenal played a stronger side than usual in this competition as they were up against their (and Chelsea’s!) great rivals, and the finishing score of 1-4 was a pleasure for both the Blue and Red sides of London!
Wenger said after the game that he enjoyed it as well, despite being forced to watch it from the stands, due to his touchline ban: “The game was enjoyable.” he said. “We played well in the first half but we were only one goal in front and after that Tottenham came back. We were for a few minutes a little bit in danger but slowly we took over again and in the final 20 minutes it looked that would could score, but we didn’t. Then we got these two penalties which in my opinion were penalties and that was the turning point of the game. But overall we played very well.”
Watch out for Nasri’s goal-line save after scoring two penalties!
