    Time:120'
    • Tottenham Hotspur
    • Arsenal
    • 120' There goes the whistle! All over. A deserved win for the visitors.
    • 119' Arshavin's shot is wide of goal.
    • 118' Wilshere probably going to end up as man of the match for his performance.
    • 117' Fine run and shot by Pavlyuchenko, but his shot is wide of goal.
    • 116' Wonder what Redkapp will make of this? He looks to be fairly pensive. His side did well in 90 minutes, but a few lapses in concentration have really done for them.
    • 115' A singing contest between the fans has developed. Little or nothing of great interest occuring on the pitch.
    • 114' Arsenal now scored 24 goals in seven games. That is good in anybody's language. Bright start to the season. This won't exactly deflate their fans.
    • 113' Arshavin dashes in, but his shot from 20 yards is wide of goal.
    • 112' Wilshere on the ball. Arsenal can play this out in their own half, but they may well go for another goal.
    • 111' Caulker is down needing a bit of treatment for cramp.
    • 110' Lansbury clears the corner from Bentley's delivery. All over and Spurs look like they want to get off the park.
    • 109' Arsenal fans loving this as their side knock the ball around with some ease before Spurs win a corner.
    • 108' Arsenal were shredded 5-1 by Spurs in the semis of this tournament in 2008. Bit of a change from that night.
    • 107' Arsenal content to keep possession. Bit of an unreal atmosphere out there.
    • 106' We are starting a second period of extra-time that the home fans have aborted. Big empty spaces.
    • 106' First period over.
    • 105' Fabianski blocks a Keane shot. Should have been a goal really. Nasri blocks the shot on the line.
    • 104' FOURTH GOAL FOR ARSENAL! Arshavin bursts clears and hammers low into the corner of the net. Spurs defenders have gone to sleep. Game over now.
    • 103' Some of the home fans are heading for the exit doors while Arsenal followers seem to be in party mood. Those two penalties have changed the mood in the stadium.
    • 102' Clichy replaces the injured Gibbs for Arsenal.
    • 101' Chamakh almost made it four for Arsenal. Arshavin slipped a fine ball across goal, but just evades his team-mate.
    • 100' Awful miss by Bentley! Fine cross by Naughton to the back post, but he heads that wide of goal from six goals.
    • 99' Sandro has been replaced by Kranjcar.
    • 98' Those penalties were pretty spot on decisions. Spurs can't have any complaints. Just been caught twice at the back.
    • 97' THIRD GOAL FOR ARSENAL! Nasri keeps his cool to slide that ball into the net with the keeper heading in the other direction.
    • 96' PENALTY TO ARSENAL! Caulker pulls back Chamakh.
    • 95' Nasri doing some donkey work to get back to help his team-mate. His calf injury doesn't seem to be troubling him.
    • 94' Wilshere brought down again. Seems to be a theme of the night. Suddenly Arsenal back in control.
    • 93' The penalty wasn't the clearest, but the referee was quick to react. Spurs will need to come from behind for a second time.
    • 92' GOAL FOR ARSENAL! Nasri sends the ball down the centre of the goal with Pletikosa diving to his left.
    • 92' Penalty to Arsenal! Bassong pulls back Nasri in the box.
    • 91' So we start extra-time.
    • 90+3' There goes the whistle! We will have an extra 30 minutes to settle this one. Stay with us for extra-time.
    • 90+2' Pletikosa misses the free-kiick, but Spurs survive before Bassong takes the sting out of an Eboue shot. All happening here.
    • 89' Going to be three minutes of added time and Arsenal have a free-kick.
    • 88' Shot by Denilson is blocked by Pletikosa. Nasri just failed to get on the rebound.
    • 87' Arshavin plays in Chamakh, but he hesistates before he can shoot and Spurs can regroup.
    • 86' Arsenal break up play. Nasri rolls the ball back to Denilson, but his shot is tired. Swerves well away from goal.
    • 85' Five minutes away from extra-time. Has been a breathless evening. A goal now would surely be the winner.
    • 84' Decent dig by Lansbury, but his shot is halted by Pletikosa in the home goal.
    • 83' Arsenal on the break. Chamakh wins a corner off Assou-Ekotto, but the ball is nodded off the header of Caulker and out of the area.
    • 82' Keane hits the post from Bentley's free-kick, but the flag was up.
    • 81' Lansbury is booked for a late chop on Sandro. Another free-kick to Spurs.
    • 80' Lansbury's cross drifts out of play. Arsenal have struggled to reproduce the levels of the first period when they were in complete control.
    • 79' Bentley gets it on target, but an easy take for Fabianski. Sacrificied power for direction. No danger to the visitors.
    • 78' Koscielny makes a late challenge on Keane and Spurs have a free-kick. 25 yards out. In front of goal.
    • 77' Super control by Arshavin, but Naughton is alert to the danger. Good tackle.
    • 76' Possession almost 50-50 now, which tells you all about the home side's recovery.
    • 75' Wilshere passes to Chamakh, but Spurs are diligent in defence. Sandro has found his second wind. Suddenly all over the place.
    • 74' Difficult to see who is going to win this one. Wouldn't have said that at the break. Has been some change in the mood of this match.
    • 73' Caulker looks to play in Pavlyuchenko, but nothing doing as the ball drifts back to Fabianski.
    • 72' Arsenal going for this. In years gone by, Wenger wouldn't have been using his big names for this tournament.
    • 71' Two changes for Arsenal. Rosicky is replaced by Chamakh. Vela is off with Arshavin off.
    • 70' Superb block by Bassong to charge down a Wilshere shot.
    • 69' Koscielny makes a wonderful tackle on Lennon as he prepared to pull the trigger. That is the first time he has got behind Gibbs in this half.
    • 68' Nasri supplies Wislhere, but he fails to nail that shot and Pletikosa saves.
    • 67' Nice marking by Gibbs on Lennon to deny the winger a run down a flank.
    • 66' Sandro clatters Koscielny late. Pavlyuchenko provided the ball into the box. Decent play by Spurs, who look more dangerous on the break the longer this one goes on.
    • 65' Spurs have upped their work-rate. May be another change in the offing for Spurs. Sandro looking a bit weary.
    • 64' Wenger still studying his mobile phone. No reception but the noisy one he is getting from the home fans.
    • 63' Corner comes to nothing. Arsenal beginning to find their feet again after losing that equaliser. Some nice passing movements. Keane is putting in a fair shift, as you would expect, to close down space.
    • 62' Good work by Sandro to tackle Denilson after an error by Caulker. Arsenal have a corner.
    • 61' Stunning cross by Rosicky. Threw over a delicious ball, but Vela glances his header over from 10 yards. Chance for the visitors.
    • 60' Determined play by young Gibbs as he dashed into the home box. Spurs clear after Gibbs provided Nasri with the ball in the area.
    • 59' Eboue drove forward and drove wide. Should have looked for a team-mate there.
    • 58' Remember you can keep up to date with all the other action in the Carling Cup tonight. Carling Cup: Third round LIVE
    • 57' Match really coming to life. Play swinging from end to end. Arsenal with 56% of possesion to the home side's 44%.
    • 56' Caulker gets back to clear after Nasri tried to release Vela. Smart play by the home defender.
    • 55' Vela trying to outpace Bassong, but the Spurs defender matches him stride for stride. Spurs winning more of the battles they were losing in the first half.
    • 54' Vela swings that over the bar with his left peg from 25 yards. Always rising.
    • 53' Bassong clatters Wilshere. Free-kick to the visitors.
    • 52' Wenger has tried to phone down to the bench, but he can't get a signal on his mobile. Trying to get a message to his bench.
    • 51' Arsenal may be made to pay for failing to kill this game off in the first half. Spurs right back in this and they look hungrier with Keane and Lennon out there.
    • 50' Pavlyuchenko hammers a shot over the bar. Keane looked offside from Naughton's pass, but it is the home fans who are celebrating now.
    • 49' GOAL FOR SPURS! Keane has scored from the edge of the box. Poor goalkeeping by Fabianski. Should have saved that. Palmed it into his net.
    • 48' Keane and Lennon combine down the Arsenal left flank, but England winger Lennon can't deliver a cross.
    • 47' Keane trying to encourage Spurs. Gibbs rises with a strong header at the outset of the second period to clear the danger. The home side trying to up the tempo.
    • 46' Spurs get us under way for this second half.
    • Robbie Keane replaces Giovani and Aaron Lennon is on for Livermore at the break. Spurs had to change something after that first period.
    • 45+2' There goes the whistle! Arsenal in complete control, but don't write Spurs off. Only one goal in it. Still a bit of life in this match yet.
    • 44' Two minutes to be added to this half. Vela fouls Giovani.
    • 43' Arsenal getting by on just 60% of possession as Wenger heads for the dressing room for his half-time team talk. Not much that needs to be said.
    • 42' Tottenham have a few decent names on the bench. May see them in the second period. Huddlestone, Lennon, Jenas, Keane and Kranjcar could all be deployed.
    • 41' Naughton is going to be booked for a late one on Rosicky. Fine tackle by Djourou in the box. Arsenal excelling all over the park, it must be said.
    • 40' Arsenal fans singing "Champions League, you're having a laugh" At the moment, it feels more like "Carling Cup, you're having a laugh....."
    • 39' Assou-Ekotto tries a cross at the other end, but too much pace on the cross and the ball flies out. Goal-kick to Arsenal.
    • 38' Wilshere is enjoying an exceptional first half. Spurs will be happy to get to the break only one behind if this continues.
    • 37' Lovely pass by Wilshere to Gibbs. The linesman flags for offside, but he wasn't. Lucky for Spurs. That could have been 2-0 there.
    • 36' Pavlyuchenko tackles Djourou late and he adds to the crime count. He is in the book.
    • 35' Nice run by Vela. He bends his run to get on the end of a Nasri pass, but Spurs stand up and have enough bodies back.
    • 34' This is like a European game at the Emirates. Arsenal playing like the home side. They have the more experienced side and it is paying off.
    • 33' Spurs seeing a bit of the ball. Giovani crosses, but Pavlyuchenko is too far out and the header is gobbled up by the visiting defence. Here come Arsenal again.
    • 32' Redknapp looking fairly relaxed on the bench, Wenger should be purring with delight in the stands. Has been a fabulous first period for his side so far.
    • 31' Gibbs trying to fly up that left flank, but Caulker spots the danger and gets the ball up the park.
    • 30' The home fans trying to encourage their side, but a rare offensive move ends with Bentley caught offside.
    • 29' Arsenal back on the attack. Enjoying 64% of possession, which says it all. Spurs can't get out of their half.
    • 28' Caulker drives in a cross that flies over the bar. Not sure if he went for goal there.
    • 27' Pavlyuchenko, with seven goals in eight games in this tournament, leads a home break. He flashes a shot wide of goal. Warning to Arsenal that they can't become slack.
    • 26' A shot from Rosicky is tipped wide by Pletikosa. The corner comes to nothing, but Arsenal continue to keep possession.
    • 25' Lansbury dashes through, but Eboue's pass had too much gas on it.
    • 24' Palacios catches Wilshere this time. Three times in as many minutes.
    • 23' Harry Redknapp celebrated his 100th game in charge of Spurs in their win over Wolves at the weekend. Not enjoying this so far. Spurs starved of possession.
    • 22' Denilson lets one go from 35 yards, but that was optimistic. Wide of the target, relief for Spurs.
    • 21' Wilshere is brought down again. This time by Sandra on his debut for the home side. Free-kick to Arsenal.
    • 20' Booking for Livermore for a crunching late tackle on young Wilshere. Spurs being given the runaround out there.
    • 19' Poor choice by Bentley! Broke into space. Should have sent in Pavlyuchenko, but opted to go for goal. Over the bar.
    • 18' An effort by Lansbury from distance, but this time well over the bar. The away side continue to turn the screw.
    • 17' Arsenal unbeaten in six matches. Four wins, two draws and 21 goals scored. Really need to start turning those stats into something tangible for the boardroom.
    • 16' Arsenal knocking the ball around with ease. 20-plus passes before Nasri is clipped by Livermore. Spurs chasing space.
    • 15' The shout goes out: "1-0 to the Arsenal". Their fans will be hoping for a few more this evening. The Gunners look right in the mood.
    • 14' GOAL FOR ARSENAL! Lansbury on target from close range. Superb cross from Wilshere and Lansbury takes the gamble to convert with the home defence ball watching.
    • 13' Lansbury lines a shot up from distance, but he doesn't get hold of that properly and he screws his shot wide.
    • 12' Arsenal have won this tournament twice under George Graham. Will be looking to go all the way after five years without a trophy.
    • 11' Denilson fires in a shot after a decent passage of play by the visitors, but over the bar. Better play by Arsenal.
    • 10' Lansbury down under a challenge by Assou-Ekotto. Could have been a penalty. Looked like a push.
    • 9' Bentley hammers that ball in, but the effort is high and handsome and well over the bar. Poor shot.
    • 8' Djourou cllps Pavlyuchenko and Spurs have a free-kick. Djourou making his first start in 16 months after recovering from a knee injury.
    • 7' A lot of fiesty tackles, but not much of note happening. Lansbury goes down in a tussle with Caulker in the box, but the referee smiles and says play on.
    • 6' Pavlyuchenko cuts the ball across the face of goal, but nobody there and Gibbs can pick that ball up.
    • 5' Giovani picks the pocket of Nasri. Good solid tackle by the Spurs player.
    • 4' Spurs beats Arsenal 2-1 in the Premier League at the Lane last season, and have lost only one of their previous six matches against their London rivals.
    • 3' Spurs looking sharp in possession. The noise keeps coming. Vela tries an effort from distance for the Gunners, but that is well over the bar.
    • 2' The crowd in fairly boisterous mood. Challenges flying in out there. Palacios goes down, but Livermore picks it up.
    • 1' Arsenal to get us off and running. We are under way.
    • 19.44 Spurs in white, Arsenal in red and white. A minute's round of applause for the Tottenham legend Bobby Smith who died on Friday.
    • 19.40 Tottenham beat Arsenal 5-1 in the semi-finals of this tournament a couple of years ago. Unlikely to be a repeat this evening, but you never know in cup football.
    • 19.35 You can get 13/8 for a Spurs win, 12/5 for the draw and 6/4 on an Arsenal victory. Arsenal look good with such a strong side. "We want to respect the fans who come here and respect the competition," says Wenger.
    • 19.30 Harry Redknapp believes the pressure is on Arsenal to win a trophy rather than blooding youngsters. "I think that you need to win. Winning is great and the fans want to see some trophies. "I wouldn't want to be sitting in a position where the fans go: 'It was good, he played all the kids and didn't win nothing but he has a good youth team'. That doesn't work for me."
    • 19.25 Spurs are missing Younes Kaboul with a hamstring injury and Vedran Corluka with a back problem. Brazilian youngster makes his debut in midfield for the home side.
    • 19.20 The referee is Lee Probert of Wiltshire.
    • 19.15 Teams: Tottenham: Pletikosa, Bentley, Pavlyuchenko, Palacios, Naughton, Giovani, Bassong, Livermore, Sandro, Assou-Ekotto, Caulker. Arsenal: Fabianski; Eboue, Djourou, Koscielny, Gibbs; Lansbury, Denilson, Wilshere, Nasri, Rosicky, Vela.
    • 19.10 We'll have the teams for you as soon as possible. Arsene Wenger is banned from the technical area for this match tonight. Read about why he won't be on the touchline. Wenger admits FA misconduct charge
