Sheffield Wednesday has caused the upset of the night,
knocking out Arsenal of the Carling Cup 3-0.

Arsenal is in red hot form at the moment, sitting equal on
points with first place Manchester City, whilst defeating Bayern Munich in
style at the Emirates.

So how did they lose so badly to a Championship side?

There is always the argument that the League Cup isn’t taken
seriously, but any football player knows that they don’t go into games halfhearted.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger was hit with a double whammy
this morning, after wingers Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain and Theo Walcott both
suffered injuries early in the game.

Sheffield fans will be hoping ‘The Owls’ can replicate their
success in 2002, where they made it to the Quarter Finals of the Cup.


 Chelsea’s nightmare run of form has continued, after a 10
man Stoke City team knocked them out on penalties 1-1 (5-4) (P).

Despite Chelsea’s domination in the first half, The Potters
hit home first as Glenn Whelan fired a deadly shot past Blues keeper Begovic.

Jose Mourinho’s side left their equalizing goal until the
last minute of added time, Loic Remy scoring a close range shot from Zouma’s

Stoke had gone down to 10 men after Phil Bardsley received two
yellow cards.

The match went to penalties, which saw Stoke City hit a
perfect five, whilst Eden Hazard had his shot saved by Butland.

Mourinho’s job hangs in jeopardy, the confidence of his
players are down, and their title defense is well and truly over.

Where do the Blues go from here?


 Anfield Stadium was evacuated today, following the disappearance
of a man who took part in the stadium tour group.

The Police were called in which led to an online social
media frenzy. The man wasn’t found by police, after they did a full check of
the stadium.

The mystery man is still yet to be found, but officials say
the game between Liverpool and Bournemouth will still go ahead tomorrow.
