Arsenal ace Nasri: I took spotkick duties from Rosicky

Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri admits he was the designated spotkick taker for last night's Carling Cup win over Tottenham.

Nasri scored two penalties on the night.

He revealed he had agreed with manager Arsene Wenger that he would take the spot-kicks, after Tomas Rosicky missed from 12 yards against Sunderland on Saturday.

"I provoked the foul and then I didn't take the penalty," Nasri said. "But after I talked with the boss and said, 'Next time I will take the penalty', and I scored."
