Arsenal booked their place at Wembley as they beat Ipswich 3-0 in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg at the Emirates Stadium.

The npower Championship club were protecting a slender 1-0 lead and defended resolutely to frustrate the Gunners for more than an hour.

However, Nicklas Bendtner finally broke their resistance with a fine individual goal before Laurent Koscielny quickly headed in a second and captain Cesc Fabregas secured safe passage to Wembley.
