While plaudits have rightly come the way of players such as Jack Wilshere, Henri Lansbury and Kieran Gibbs after Tuesday’s resounding win at White Hart Lane, Cesc Fabregas believes the introduction of another star was a vital ingredient in our extra-time success.
“I think Andrey Arshavin made the big difference for us,” he says in his captain’s notes for tomorrow’s Matchday Programme.
“I believe he won us the game when he came on. He played the two passes that led to the two penalties in extra-time, then he scored the last goal himself. He can win a game.”
You can read far more from Cesc in tomorrow’s programme – as well as a raft of other exclusive interviews, features and news.
