What's This?

Capital One Cup provides a platform for promising youngsters or guys looking to stage a comeback to deliver the goods. Mathieu Flamini made the most of the opportunity in the North London Derby on Tuesday at White Hart Lane.


Flamini fired at the top of the net to silence the home crowd at White Hart Lane. Harry Kane thought he had brought back Tottenham Hotspurs four minutes after half-time, but his goal was correctly disallowed by the match officials.

Nacer Chadli and Calum Chambers combined to level in the 56th minute for the home-team, leaving Arsenal custodian David Ospina stranded.

The Gunners scored again in the 77th minute. And it was again Flamini, aiming to redeem his career at the North London outfit, who struck. Flamini fired a stunning volley home from the edge of the area. Arsene Wenger’s men held on to the lead to avenge a loss they suffered last time the North London Derby took place at White Hart Lane.
