Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal Carling Cup: Live Score and Live Updates


After clinching a smashing 3-0 victory over Fulham away on Saturday, Arsenal has accumulated all their focus on Tuesday’s second leg match of Carling Cup semi final against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Though the first leg match was ended up with a 1-1 result at the Emirates Stadium, Tottenham United has an advantage ahead of the second leg at their home ground. Tottenham scored in the away match meaning even if the second leg match ends up with a goal less draw, they will edge past Arsenal to get into the final of Carling Cup 2007-2008.

So, Arsenal either has to win the match or score more than 1 goal even if the match ends up with a draw. Added to that, Arsenal has to play away at the White Hart Lane stadium in front of their rival fans. Actually, this is the third North London derby of the season. Aside from the first leg match of Carling Cup semi final, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur faced each other on two occasions in English premier league this season, with Arsenal winning both times.

Tottenham United started the nightmarish start in the season. Overcoming all the setbacks, Tottenham has been improving at this moment. Tottenham stands 12th in the league point table with 27 points. In their last six matches in the league, they won three and lost in the others. However, their performance at home including five victories in their last six home matches is satisfactory.

Arsenal, on the other hand, has been impressive throughout the season. They have lost only one match so far in Premier league this season. Without any star footballer in the squad, Arsene Wenger has proved his worth once again, leading Arsenal atop the point table most of the time in the season. Though Arsenal is now second to Manchester United in the league standing by goal difference, Arsenal also has 54 points.

Arsenal had a 1-1 draw against Birmingham City last week, which pushed them down in the league standing. After that disappointing draw, something like a 3-0 victory was needed for Arsenal against Fulham in order to boost up their confidence level. So, Arsene Wenger is happy with the performance of his side.

Telegraph reported:

"Overall I'm very happy with the way we responded to our 1-1 draw last week," said Arsene Wenger. "This shows that the team really want to do it and that after such a disappointing result they can come back in a very strong way. We gave a strong response and I feel we controlled the game for 90 minutes."

Arsenal’s young forward, Theo Walcott, was absent in their 3-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday. Coach Arsene Wenger has hinted that Walcott is going to play in the center of Arsenal attack in stead of playing in the wing. It is thought that Wenger rested his young gun against Fulham, in order to give Walcott some time to prepare himself for the new position ahead of the second leg match of Carling Cup semi final.

Reuters reported:

"I think he is waiting to play in the centre and that is where he will be happiest because he is a direct player, he has good timing for his runs and I believe he will do well," Wenger told reporters ahead of the game at Craven Cottage.

The Arsenal manager, who famously switched Thierry Henry from the wing to a central role, explained that Walcott had been omitted from the squad for Saturday's game so he could prepare for Tuesday's League Cup semi-final at rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

"He will get a chance up front but he is not in the squad for Fulham because we play again on Tuesday and some have to practise to play on Tuesday," added Wenger.

Tottenham Hotspur eased past Sunderland in their recent league match. So, they must be inspired ahead of another North London Derby on Tuesday at their home ground. In their 2-0 victory against Sunderland, Tottenham Hotspur vice-captain, Robbie Keane celebrated his 100th goal for Tottenham. So, he will be inspired to put on a match winning performance against Arsenal.

Well, Arsenal has been at their great form halfway the season whereas their cross-town rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, is also gearing up for better performance, leaving past their poor form. What is more, statistics, recent form and many other things become meaningless when it comes to a North London Derby. So, I do not go for any prediction regarding the result of the match. Rather, I would like to say that football fans are going to experience an exciting match on Tuesday.

What do you think about the match?
