The Arsenal returned to dominate the possession and to collect occasions without any prize. After 22 games and five months without defeats, Emery’s have chained two consecutive slips. Against Southampton in the Premier and now against Tottenham in the Capital One Cup.
In a match where the chances belong to Arsenal but the goals came from Tottenham, could have been very different if it was not for the Argentine goalkeeper Gazzaniga that with two great stops kept the match even until the arrival of Son’s goal. Dele Alli after a steal of the ball, left Son before Cech, who made the 0-1. The South Korean returned to wet path and with this goal, he has made five of the last eight goals of Tottenham in the League Cup.
It would not be all for Dele Alli, a long ball from Kane would be all Dele Alli needed to do the second goal of the game and leave O.K the Arsenal that would keep trying but this time the post would say no.
A further frustration for the fans who saw their team dominate and have chances but did not achieve the goal, the frustration was so much that a plastic bottle was thrown from the tribune of the Emirates Stadium about 12 minutes after Alli had scored the second goal of the Spurs, hitting the English striker’s head.
In response, Alli showed two fingers to the fans of Arsenal, referring to the advantage of Tottenham in the quarterfinals match. Several police had to be placed in the bleachers to extend the security barrier between the followers of Tottenham and Arsenal to avoid any aggression.
Chelsea advanced to the semifinals as well, with a 1-0 triumph over Bournemouth. Eden Hazard scored the anguish triumph at 84 minutes. The defending champion, Manchester City and Burton of the third division complete the group of semifinalists.
