Tottenham playmaker Van der Vaart continues Arsenal taunts ahead of Cup clash

Tottenham ace Rafael van der Vaart has again taunted arch-rivals Arsenal ahead of tomorrow's Carling Cup derby showdown.

Van der Vaart knows how much the clash means to both sides after being given the lowdown by Gunners striker Robin van Persie - his Holland team-mate.

Spurs hammered their neighbours 5-1 in the second leg of the Carling Cup semi-final two years ago and went on to lift the trophy.

Van der Vaart said: "Everybody has been talking about the Arsenal match all week. Robin told me when we were together in the national team what a big game it is. I'm really looking forward to it."
