Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has condemned the disturbances by Gunners’ fans following the end of Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup victory at Tottenham, and vowed the club will fully cooperate with the authorities to help identify those responsible.

Midfielder Mathieu Flamini struck a stunning late winner to secure bragging rights in the north London derby.

However, the celebrations were overshadowed by disturbances which saw a minority of the travelling supporters in the corner of the South Stand ripping down hoardings of Tottenham club slogans, with police and stewards forced to intervene.

Arsenal are now working with both Tottenham and the authorities, with banning orders a likely outcome for any offenders.

Wenger was disappointed the incident had taken the shine off what was a positive response to a difficult spell following defeat at Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League and also in a fiery clash at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

“We cooperate completely with the authorities to sort that out. We don’t want any violence,” said Wenger, who takes his side to Leicester on Saturday.

“I don’t really know what happened but we are the disposal of the authorities to help them to sort it out.”
