Since Arsenal's rout of Coventry City in the Capital One Cup (née Carling Cup, née Milk Cup, née League Cup) wasn't televised live anywhere in the world, only the 60,000 or so paying customers - or however many actually bothered to show up - got to see any of it. This is unfortunate, because it sounded like a pretty fun game to watch, and we all enjoy fun.
That's why it's great news that Arsenal have made the highlights of the game available for free via Arsenal Player, whether or not you're a subscriber. They're not really full highlights - it's just the seven goals, plus the Andrei Arshavin foul that led to the penalty, and Olivier Giroud's ensuing penalty saved by Joe Murphy. But really, that's a good start, especially for a grand total of no money at all.
If you haven't already gotten a chance to catch the highlights, visit Arsenal Player and check it out. And if you have seen them somewhere else, watch them here too, because the video quality is superb and you can actually see what's going on. And real talk: Giroud's chiseled features deserve the highest resolution possible. You'll thank me later.

Ideally we should have waited a bit longer to include him again, said Arsene Wenger, "but once you're back, you want so much a chance to be involved. So I want to give him a chance to be involved at least.
He will be on the bench and, if possible, we will put him on. 's (sic) a big moment because he has suffered for a long time and has worked extremely hard.
Frimpong showed flashes of brilliance and untethered aggression in six matches for Arsenal last season, before being loaned out to Wolverhampton and eventually suffering a torn ACL for the second-straight season. While he's been praised as a tough-tackling midfielder who could go on to star for the club, it's still best to remember that he only has 11 total top-flight appearances in his career; competitions like the Capital One Cup are a perfect staging ground for players like Frimpong to both gain experience and get back to full fitness. Hopefully he can stay healthy enough and prove to Wenger and the supporters that his name should be on the first-team squad list for many seasons to come.
