Tuesday Carling Cup - West Ham and Arsenal go through

Arsenal and West Ham will take their place in the last four of the Carling Cup after scoring home wins on Tuesday night.


West Ham booked a first League Cup semi-final for 20 years after knocking holders Manchester United out of the Carling Cup at snowy Upton Park.

West Ham caused the upset of the night - spanking a second-string Manchester United side 4-0 at Upton Park with ex-United old boy Jonathan Spector scoring the first two goals ... his first ever goals in senior English football.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made nine changes from the team that defeated Aston Villa 4-2 on Saturday and for long periods of the first half the Gunners were slightly disjointed and disappointing in front of goal.

Arsenal took a while to subdue an energetic Wigan side, but a goal in each half was enough to see Arsenal beat Wigan 2-0 at the Emirates.


The draw takes place following tomorrow evening's last-eight matches between Birmingham and Aston Villa and Ipswich and West Brom.
