Spurs put to the sword by superb Gunners


Written by Chris Wheatley

Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri scored two penalties in extra-time to help Arsenal to a 4-1 victory over north London rivals Tottenham in the third round of the Carling Cup.

Reserves star Henri Lansbury had given the Gunners the lead in the first half at White Hart Lane, but Robbie Keane equalised just after the interval despite being in a clearly offside position.

However, Nasri succeeded where Tomas Rosicky had failed at Sunderland on Saturday, firing home two convincing spot-kicks after he had been brought down by Sebastian Bassong and Marouane Chamakh pulled back by Steven Caulker.

Andrey Arshavin completed the scoring with a delightful strike.

Arsene Wenger’s thoughts on the game:

“The game was enjoyable. 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.”

Agreed, Koscielny is beginning to look an absolute bargain. His tight marking , speed and awareness make the game look easy for him. We are looking sharp. Up the Arsenal. p.s. Hope Gibbs is ok, he was great. He had Lennon in his pocket!

all the spurs fans are moaning we had our best team out? so no goalie, no 1st team defenders, two midfielders we use on defence and a 5 choice striker? um, can anyone see the irony?

It was our 2nd team to tell the truth, the sort of team that would play in the FA cup, usually we field our 3rd team but I was surprised by Wenger. I think he knows we have to win this kind of game to state our authority.

It will do wonders for the players confidence, we have allowed Spurs to come too close to us these couple of seasons but hopefully no more.

kozza looked great tonight. djourou, i thought, had a good game too. it was a shame that the one thing fabianski had to do all night was pick the ball out of the net but then seemingly he has chocolate wrists. we’re playing the wrong pole.

Denilson had a good game too IMO, he didn’t get run over by the spuds. First half was beautiful, we didn’t even let them touch the ball! I can’t remember the last time I was this happy over our team performance. Jack is just something special! That pass to Gibbs that the linesman wrongly adjudged offsides was “Xavi”-esque(sorry for mentioning the fat barcac*nt’s name). All in all, a good performance from the lads. Hope Gibbs is okay, and that’ll teach ‘Arry, VDV and every other deluded spud that they will never be on the same level as us. Forever in… Read more »

Gibbs and Wilshere were wonderful. I’m just bemused by this Arsenal, man of the match polls where, it seems, all the women vote Chamakh :S

I totally agree Jason.
Our back 4 should be Sagna Squillaci Koscielny and Vermaelen. That’s our strongest back line.

Nasri is a first teamer, and last night showed it.

Not just the pens but his all round game.

Better than Diaby.
