Arsenal Defeats Shrewsbury 3-1 in Carling Cup 3rd Round

Arsenal performed well during the Carling Cup Third Round match between Arsenal and Shrewsbury Town at Emirates Stadium on September 20, 2011 in London, England as Arsenal narrowly avoided a Carling Cup upset last night.

League Two Shrewsbury looked likely to defeat the Gunners when they took an early lead, but Arsenal improved after the break to reach the next round with a 3-1 win with strikes from Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Yossi Benayoun.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger stated, ‘Whether I work here for the next 10 years or the next day, I will give my maximum. I will let other people assess the situation. I focus on doing well for this club, that is all. I am not bothered at all by all this speculation’.

Wenger praised Oxlade-Chamberlain who earned the second goal.

‘You could see that he will be a first-team player here, for sure’.
