The second leg of the 2008 semi-final saw Spurs gain a massive 5-1 revenge over their greatest rivals for the semi-final defeat they had inflicted the previous season.

In front of a pulsating White Hart Lane crowd, Tottenham's slick passing football left the Gunners chasing shadows and earned Juande Ramos's side their first victory over Arsenal in nine years.

Goals from Jermaine Jenas, Robbie Keane, Aaron Lennon, Steed Malbranque and a Nicklas Bendtner own-goal left the Gunners reeling and gave Tottenham a place in the first League Cup Final at the new Wembley Stadium, a game in which they would go on to defeat their other main London rivals, Chelsea thanks to an extra-time goal from man-of-the-match Jonathan Woodgate.
