League Cup 2010: Tot 1 - 4 Arsenal (after extra time)

Superb performance !!! Well done Gunners even though without their manager Arsene Wenger in the dugout. Let's hope last Sat's dissapointment of dropping 2 points in the league at Sunderland will just be a blip and they will return to their winning runs again... :)

Henri Lansbury scoring his first goal for the club 15 minutes into his full debut, and then 2 penalties from Samir Nasri before a super finish from Arshavin during the extra time underline Arsenal's possesion and dominance in this usual, Wilshere was a live-wire at the center midfield position again.

Overall, tonight's first starting eleven was a mixed of both talented youngsters with some experiences regulars. Too bad Gibbs was taken off on the 102nd minute with a suspected metatarsal problem. Frankly, if Arsenal were to challenge on all fronts or even if only focusing on the Champions League or the league, injuries have to cut down as at this moment, there were just too many first team players in the treatment room :(
