Chimbonda on Carling Cup revenge mission

Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda plans to avenge last season's Carling Cup semi-final defeat to Arsenal when the rivals meet at the same stage this year.

Spurs were in command of the first leg of the previous meeting in January but threw away a two-goal lead and eventually got knocked out by the Gunners' youngsters in extra-time.

Spurs defeated Manchester City earlier in the week to put themselves in the last four, and confidence is appearing to return at White Hart Lane after their disastrous start to the season.

'Everybody wants to win something and the League Cup is a great opportunity for us. We want to go one better than we did last year,' said Chimbonda.

'We know what we have to do.

'It hurt us a lot to lose to them last season. We were winning 2-0 at home in the first leg and they got it back to 2-2 and we ended up losing the second leg.

'But we have learned from what happened and it will be different this time. We can win the trophy this season. We can achieve anything when we perform like we did against Manchester City.'

Spurs became the first team to win at Eastlands when they recorded their 2-0 win on Tuesday, and Arsenal have also been impressive at home so far.

'We would love to be the first team to beat them at the Emirates this season,' said Chimbonda.

Chelsea defeated Liverpool to set up a semi-final against Everton, with the two-legged ties getting played next month.

The three quarter-finals held this week all featured red cards for reckless challenges.

After Tottenham's Didier Zokora and Arsenal midfielder Denilson were dismissed last night, Peter Crouch was given a straight red at Stamford Bridge for his lunge at Mikel John Obi tonight.
