2. Arsenal win their Carling Cup Fifth Round tie at Anfield thereby participating in the Carling Cup Semi Finals.

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool or Arsenal (8pm)
(Subject to FA Cup replay matches not being played) 

Wednesday, January 24, 2007

In the event of Liverpool/Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur requiring an FA Cup Third Round replay, the Semi Final dates will be amended as follows: 

Wednesday, January 24, 2007
Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool or Arsenal (8pm)

Tuesday, January 30, 2007
