Burnley 2-0 Arsenal – Carling Cup – Highlights
Two goals from Burnley midfielder Kevin McDonald sent Arsenal’s young side crashing out of the Carling Cup.
McDonald opened the scoring after just six minutes, tapping home from close range after keeper Lukasz Fabianski had spilled the ball into his path.
The second came shortly into the second half with McDonald curling the ball past Fabianski from a tight angle.
Arsenal had several chances but found Burnley keeper Brian Jensen in fine form on a memorable night at Turf Moor.
Striker Nicklas Bendtner in particular endured a frustrating evening missing several decent chances for the Premier League outfit.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger kept true his promise to again field his youngsters who had been so impressive in their path to the quarter-finals of the competition.
