Arsenal 2-1 Bolton + Highlights ( Carling cup)

Ju Young Park scores in his first match!!!! What an awesome finish by the South Korean Captain!!!
Same goes for Arshavin who scored a slick goal at an acute angle!!

I haven't seen the match as of now ( counldn't find  a stream :(  ) but from what I've seen it seems as if Arsenal were faced a pretty intense game and registered a hard-worked win !

And the line up was completely revam
ped from BPL line up. Everytone and I mean everyone,  from the goalkeepers to the strikers were changed. 
Lukaz Fabianski kept the gloves and the arm band was given to Arsenal's much missed defender Thomas Vermaelen who started as center back. 

Unfortunately, Vermaelen suffered a calf strain and had to be taken off in the closing stages of the match. Arsene Wenger has stated that the Belgian striker may not start against Chelsea on Saturday.

Here is the complete interview:  

[Andrey Arshavin] Andrey is a player who of course takes a bit gamble on nearly every ball he plays.
Sometimes he loses balls he shouldn’t lose but when you look at the end of the game he has always had a big impact. Tonight he scored and made an assist. He had a good performance tonight.
[Thomas Vermaelen] did very well. He had to come off for a calf problem but I hope it’s not too bad. He will be a bit short for Saturday, I don’t know yet what I will do.
We have to test him tomorrow, but it doesn’t look too bad. He has been out for a long time, he had only one training session yesterday with the team.
I didn’t really expect a game of that intensity, it was a tough one for a centre-back. They put us under pressure in the second half and the intensity of the game was very high.
We don’t think it is a calf strain, it is just tight calves. He has not played a proper game for two months. He wanted to come off.
In fairness I did not want to take him off because I thought it was too stupid now with four minutes to go to concede a goal. He was adamant he couldn’t go on so I hope it’s not too bad.

And yes the highlights!! :)  ( Sorry for the Chinese)

And Happy Diwali to everyone!! :)
