Arsenal boss Wenger defends Fabianski over Cup performance

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he wasn't disappointed with Lukasz Fabianski conceding in their Carling Cup win at Tottenham.

Arsenal went on to win the tie 4-1 after extra time and Wenger was quick to defend Fabianski for his performance on Tuesday night.

"You can't blame him for that goal because he touched it and when a goalkeeper touches the ball you always think he should stop it," said Wenger

"But if he dives and doesn't touch it nobody speaks about it.

"First of all, the goal was offside and apart from that I think he had a sound game."
