Carling Cup: Ipswich Town 1-0 Arsenal

Ipswich Town 1-0 Arsenal

Although Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by Ipswich Town in the Carling Cup – the Gunners do have the second leg of their semi-final coming up.

Arsenal will have to overturn the 1-0 deficit against Ipswich when they play again at Emirates Stadium on January 25 in order to reach the Carling Cup Final.

Arsene Wenger decided to leave Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie home when the squad travelled to Portman Road. Wenger must be surprised that his side have failed to beat two Championship opponents in the past week.

Arsenal make the short journey to Upton Park on Saturday to face West Ham. The Hammers still have a strong chance of reaching the Carling Cup final after their 2-1 win over Birmingham City on Tuesday.

Hammer’s manager, Avram Grant, reportedly may get the axe at Upton Park.
