Arsenal 0 Tottenham Hotspurs 2

Goals from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli gave Tottenham victory over bitter rivals Arsenal and secured a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea. Son pounced on Alli’s smart ball over the top to put Spurs in front after just 20 minutes at the Emirates. Alli then coolly chipped it over keeper Petr Cech with the outside of his boot in the second half to make it 2-0. The England midfielder was then hit on the head by a plastic bottle thrown from the crowd shortly after that goal.

It was a heated atmosphere at what was the second north London derby in 18 days; victory ensured Spurs made the last four for the first time since 2014-15. Back then, they went on to the final and were beaten by Chelsea – their semi-final opponents this time around. Tottenham keeper Paulo Gazzaniga made two good saves in the first half of Wednesday’s quarter-final – denying Henrikh Mkhitaryan from close range and later tipping Aaron Ramsey’s volley on to the post.

In the second half, Alexandre Lacazette hit the post and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross curled onto the top of the crossbar before Christian Eriksen’s fizzing shot was saved by Cech. Arsenal had not lost back-to-back matches prior to this defeat since they were beaten by Manchester City and Chelsea in the Premier League back in August.

5 Things I Know For Sure But Can’t Prove

  1. A good portion of written history is falsified or exaggerated. History is written by the survivours, victors of war and by the ruling class in several eras of humankind. Some of them must be bogus.
  2. I don’t believe a god or gods exist. I am an atheist so I will say that I don’t believe in any god. Not one. But if you ask me to prove that none exists, I can’t say that for sure. But while I am unconvinced of what religious people tell me, can there be such beings (not exactly what current religions claim but different) around? Nope. I am pretty sure that none exist.
  3. Politicians and religious institutions are in bed and they are fucking the rest of us dry. They are in cahoots and they know their claims are false but they want power and they don’t mind stomping on you to get it.
  4. Good music, created by creative minds, composed by artists who have mastered their instruments is dying. In a couple of decades we won’t have new good music at all, just the synthezied, rap, hip-hop and pop drivel. And finally modern music will die off. Which is why in a lot of scifi shows & movies classical music is all that they play. It’s all that is left.
  5. There is intelligent life out there on other worlds, other planets, moons and galaxies. Way too many planets and galaxies out there for it not to be so. Someday we will make first contact. There has to be aliens other there. C’mon we aren’t that special!
