Arsenal vs Tottenham
English League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 19 December 2018
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
just two weeks after their most Premier League clash, Arsenal and Tottenham are set for any other thrilling north London derby.
Apart from bragging rights, it’s the carabao cup semi-final at stake on Wednesday evening when fierce city rivals come across each other at Emirates.
The Gunners ended a 22-game unbeaten thread on wet Sunday falling disappointingly 3-2 away at relegation strugglers Southampton. It was actually the first time Arsenal reminded of a team under Arsene Wenger era as they naively allowed three headers with the same cross-jump pattern to lose the first game since August. Can Unai Emery find the way to lift spirits inside the dressing room ahead of the League Cup tie in just three days?
