Punters torn over outcome of North London showdown

Sky Bet punters are torn over who will come out on top in the North London derby with only one thing seemingly assured - goals galore.

Neither side are drawing in a significant share of the backing in the match betting with a draw attracting just as much interest at 13/5.

Over 2.5 goals at 8/13 is overwhelmingly popular, while the both teams to score market is priced up shorter than in any other top-flight game at 8/15.

Such expectations are certainly backed up by the form guide, with Arsenal conceding two or more goals in their last three fixtures in all competitions, while Spurs have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight away Premier League games.

The stats backing up a draw are just as comprehensive, with Arsenal versus Tottenham resulting in more draws in Premier League history than any other fixture.

Andre Villas-Boas' men are actually yet to draw on the road in the league this season but the Gunners have certainly been susceptible to a stalemate of late, ending 90 minutes level in three of their last four games.

With the gap between the neighbours narrowing in recent years, results have been mixed, but Sky Bet still make Arsenal the strong favourites at 10/11, while their visitors are 11/4.

Regardless of the result, the free-scoring nature of Arsene Wenger's men has been consistent in this fixture, netting two or more in all of the last six previous corresponding clashes and averaging 3.5 goals from Spurs' last four visits.

Despite the departure of leading marksman Robin van Persie, Sky Bet expect more goals from the Gunners, going 8/11 on 2+ and 5/2 for 3+, while a repeat of their five-goal haul from last season is available at 25/1.

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
