Arsenal vs Tottenham live commentary on talkSPORT: Ozil not in Gunners squad, Kane on bench for Spurs
Spurs will be seeking revenge after their feisty 4-2 defeat by the Gunners earlier this month
Tottenham are out for revenge when they face bitter north London rivals Arsenal in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday night.
It is the second time Spurs travel to the Emirates this month, with their visit on December 2 in the Premier League ending in a crushing 4-2 defeat.
Both clubs were charged for failing to control their players as tempers flared and the match threatened to boil over.
Since then, Arsenal have slipped below Tottenham in the league and their 22-match unbeaten streak came to an end at Southampton on Sunday.
There is a lot more than just a Carabao Cup semi-final up for grabs in this north London grudge match.
Where can I listen?
Arsenal vs Tottenham is live on talkSPORT, kick-off 7.45pm.
What the managers are saying
Unai Emery (Arsenal): “I think football is emotion. In a derby, maybe this emotion is greater. When you win it’s amazing, when you lose it’s horrible. Respect is very important.
“We can show this emotion with respect when we are playing but also when they scored against us, they can show their emotion with their supporters.”
Mauricio Pochettino (Spurs): “It is, of course an important game, but to learn from a few weeks ago it will be a different game and approach.
“The competition is different. All the team are going to do many rotations. Maybe I surprise you and not rotate too much.”
Mesut Ozil has again been left out of Arsenal’s squad. The German was a substitute in Sunday’s 3-2 loss at Southampton but does not feature against Spurs as the Gunners contend with a host of defensive injuries.
Harry Kane is on the bench for Spurs after battling illness and Hugo Lloris is given the night off but it’s an otherwise strong line-up for the visitors, with Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min all starting.
