Our betting partners Sportingbet look at the markets available for Sunday's derby at Arsenal.

Sportingbet preview - Arsenal

The battle for North London bragging rights resumes on Sunday and after so many classic encounters in recent years, we’re offering 22/1 that Spurs add another happy ending with an injury-time winner.

Harry Redknapp’s side have not lost to their great rivals in the league since October 2009 and snatched the three points from 2-0 down in the equivalent fixture last season. We make them 40/1 to pull off that feat for a second straight year, while a win from 1-0 down pays 9/1.

The match prices themselves look extremely tight, with Arsenal narrow favourites at 7/5 and Spurs 7/4 to beat the neighbours as they did in October. The draw is priced at 12/5.

Remember the 4-4 of 2008 or the 3-3 at the Lane last season? 14 of the last 16 North London derbies have seen at least three goals and we’re offering 7/10 for Over 2.5 and 19/10 for Over 3.5.

You can also back Spurs’ stars to outgun the Gunners in our special matchbets, with Rafael van der Vaart offered at 11/2 and Emmanuel Adebayor 5/1 to outscore Robin Van Persie.
