Ipswich Stun Arsenal, Beating Them 1-0

After Saturdays 7-0 trouncing by Chelsea, not many expected Ipswich to put up much of a fight against Arsenal but surprised everyone by winning 1-0 against Arsene Wengers side.

Arsenal's hopes of winning their first trophy since 2005 were dented when Championship side Ipswich Town beat them 1-0 at Portman Road on Wednesday in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final.

A goal in the 78th-minute from recalled forward Tamas Priskin gave the home side a deserved victory, although the Premier League team will still be regarded as favourites to overturn the deficit in the second leg at the Emirates Stadium on 25 January.

The elated Priskin told Sky Sports: "I think the whole team did great work. It was a fantastic display from the whole team and I'm really happy we won 1-0 and I scored the goal."
