Tottenham vs. Arsenal: Score, Stats & Highlights



Final Score

Tottenham 0-1 — 1
Arsenal 1-1 — 2

Tottenham and Arsenal are set to kick off in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Spurs reached the final last season and are searching for their first trophy since winning the competition in 2008. With only four trophies in the last 25 years, success in any competition would be welcome to the club.

Arsenal have claimed a pair of FA Cups and Charity Shields in the last two seasons.

Arsenal defender Gabriel had his red card rescinded from the defeat to Chelsea at the weekend, but he is unlikely to feature as manager Arsene Wenger rotates his squad.

The match kicks off at 2:45 EST and can be see on BeIN Sports and Sky Sports 1. Keep it here for stats and highlights of the match.

Mathieu Flamini Gave Arsenal a 1-0 Lead In the 1st Half

The Gunners had the the better of the play early and it was rewarded with a goal in the 26th minute. Mathieu Flamini was at the right place at the right time to smash home a rebound for just his fourth goal since returning to the club in 2013.

A Calum Chambers’ Own Goal Tied the Match at 1-1

Tottenham came into the game after the opening goal, and a simple cross into the box was deflected into the goal by Arsenal defender Calum Chambers, tying the match at 1-1 with about 30 minutes to play.

Flamini Scored Again Late in the Match

Just when Tottenham was on the verge of sending the match to extra time, Flamini scored his second goal of the match in the 78th minute. This time he coolly finished off a volley to make it 2-1.

Both Arsene Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino have a lineup conundrum to face ahead of their teams’ Capital One Cup showdown at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

With a busy domestic and European season creating a hectic schedule, first-teamers requiring a rest may not get a chance to feature in what figures to be a entertaining night. Those players who have been unable to crack the starting lineup will get a chance to play.

The decision is made trickier by the fact that’s a showdown between arch rivals and fan bases who always get up for such a match.

Spurs have a win and a draw from the last two meetings under Pochettino. It will be the 189th all-time meeting between the two teams.
