The 2011/2012 Carling Cup is the perfect scenario to see the best Arsenal after Fabregas' departure. In fact, this 2-1 win over Bolton is the seventh victory in eight games, which means the team is gaining confidence and offensive power.
This win was not so easy to achieve, and only the talent of Arshavin allowed the Gunners defeat their rival. The russian footballer netted the equalizer in the second half, after Bolton's Fabrice Muamba scored the opener. Korean midfielder Park Chu-Young scored the final goal two minutes later.
This is a great result to boost the team's morale and to help Wenger explore options for the first team.
