Nothing quite like a North London derby to stoke the fires of a cup competition. Tottenham and Arsenal go head to head at White Hart Lane on Tuesday night, in the pick of the week’s matches. With both teams involved in the Champions League this year, it will be interesting to see just how much both managers go for this one. Naturally Arsene Wenger will use a lot of his younger players for the match, as that is generally the route he goes, as he uses the Carling Cup for big match experience. But what will Spurs boss Harry Redknapp do? The Champions League can take its toll on players and management, so will he follow in the shoes of Wenger and rest a lot of his star players? It is unlikely that you will see a full side from Tottenham, even at home, as Redknapp won’t want to risk any more injuries in the Carling Cup which will effect their efforts in the league and in Europe. Still, that really doesn’t take the excitement out of this game, because when younger players come in, the matches are usually a bit more up tempo because the guys on the pitch are trying to prove a point to their respective managers. The last time the two met in the league cup, it was quite an memorable encounter.
Back in 2008, the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Arsenal, but then in the replay, Tottenham ran riot in a 5-1 victory at White Hart Lane. Both teams shared the spoils of points on their home grounds in the Premier League last season, so there probably won’t be much to choose between the two sides for your Carling Cup betting. In 2007 the two sides also met in the Carling Cup, and again they played out a draw in the first leg, so a draw may well be worth backing here on Tuesday. You will have Arsenal’s experienced youngsters, if that is not too much of a contradiction, against Spurs on their home ground. Looking at head to head stats from history for matches at White Hart Lane between the two sides, Spurs have only won 40% of all matches, while Arsenal have a pretty good record with 31% of wins there. You can expect goals, as Spurs have a 1.68 average goals per game against the Gunners at home, while Arsenal are not far behind with an goal per game average of 1.44 at White Hart Lane. Out of all matches played in all competitions at all venues, Arsenal do have a big edge with nearly 42% of victories out of their 163 meetings.
So who will have the better strength in depth? If this is what you are thinking in terms of which direction to go in for your Carling Cup football betting for this one, then you have to look at Arsenal. Time and time again they have proven just how well their youth system works, when they show and beat teams in the Carling Cup. When you think of Arsenal, you always picture their young players dropping into the first team seamlessly. When you look at players like Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Gael Clichy then you can see why they have always done so well with their younger players. You look at the Tottenham squad in comparison and you don’t really see the same amount of quality in depth coming through. Sure enough, Spurs are on the rise under Harry Redknapp, and this will be a great chance now to do what Arsenal and so many other clubs do in this competition, give youngsters experience. Does this devalue the match? Well, there are arguments for an against, but with higher priorities for both clubs, it is easy to see why they do it. Arsenal have been starved of silverware for the last five years or so, and Spurs will be desperate to get something out of their advances, so there is a lot at stake.
