Arsenal v Tottenham is always a fixture to savour for supporters and neutrals alike and rarely needs any unnecessary promotion . However, at COS Towers we have spotted a few opportunities to help you enjoy the match even more and put a few extra bucks in your pocket to enjoy your Saturday night out afterwards.

As Gooners never tire of telling their north London neighbours, their team has not lost on their own ground in the derby since a 3-1 defeat in 1993 when the home side fielded such luminaries as Mark Flatts and Neil Heaney in an end of season affair. Arsenal are a far stronger proposition these days and they sit just two points off the top but they have already lost twice at home this season to newly promoted  pair, West Brom and Newcastle. While the chances of a Spurs victory might dismissed at by some, the price of 4/1 with Sportingbet for Harry Redknapp’s boys to bag a famous win cannot be sniffed at especially if Gareth Bale is in the mood.

This fixture is rarely goalless mainly because, as mentioned above,  Arsenal have enjoyed the upper hand on their own patch in recent decades. With both teams possessing natural attacking instincts you can almost guarantee goals and while a repeat of the dramatic 4-4 draw two seasons ago might be expecting too much, odds of 50/1 for a pulsating 3-3 look very tempting indeed.

In which case, who is going to score the goals?

Arsenal’s player of the season so far, Samir Nasri, has already chipped in with four goals already this term and he has opened the scoring on three occasions. He can be backed at a generous 15/2 to be the first goalscorer at lunchtime on Saturday. As all football supporters know, sods law dictates that a former player will score when plays against your team. It’s happens so often than it is almost as if divine (or possibly diabolic) intervention is at hand. Either way, it would be plain silly to ignore the fact that William Gallas is returning to face the club he enchanted and infuriated in equal measure. The Frenchman might be a centre back but he has a keen eye for goal and the price of 9/1 for Gallas to find the back of the net at anytime should be snapped up.

Good luck and enjoy the game!
