Bettingzone take Arsenal to beat Spurs

Tottenham v Arsenal

These two arch rivals meet for the 144th time on Sunday with not only the magnificent 4-4 draw still fresh in the memory from earlier in the season, we also have Robbie Keane and Andrei Arshavin on show after protracted transfer deals were finally thrashed out.

They are on offer at 12/5 and 10/3 respectively to find the target at some stage and I would suspect there will be a few takers come match time.

This is a fixture that has its fair share of goals and Keane and Arshavin aside, one player fancied to get in the thick of them again is Dutchman Robin van Persie.

He looks set to get the nod from Arsene Wenger to return to the starting line-up and has already banged in nine goals from 20 league appearances this season - including against this opposition at the Emirates back in October.

Sharp as a tack in the box, he looks a decent poke at 15/8 to get into double figures in the Premier League.

The total goals tally is set at 2.5 and recent history suggests these two may well blow that out of the water - but I just fancy the Gunners nicking this at 6/4 as the better option and spoil Keane's return to The Lane.

Verdict: Tottenham 1 Arsenal 2
