Sportingbet, the Club's official betting partners, give us the rundown on some of the markets available for Sunday's London derby with Chelsea at the Lane...

Chelsea arrive at White Hart Lane on the back of four defeats in eight games, but the champions remain a dangerous opponent and are 11/8 favourites for the three points with Sportingbet.

Those odds make in-form Spurs look a touch of value at 7/4 in their own back yard, where they have beaten the Blues in the previous two seasons.

The draw is 11/5 but with both teams battling it out at the top of the table this season, a win would propel the victor into the hectic festive period with confidence on their side.

If you expect this game to be a feisty affair, then Sportingbet is the place to back your tip in the First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets with Red Card Refunds.

Losing punts will get a second chance if any player is sent off, as we refund your stake as a free bet, and with plenty of derby games on show, you can expect fireworks in this weekend’s Premier League programme.

With those markets in mind, you’ll find great odds on a repeat of last season’s 2-1 (9/1) Spurs win or the 08/09 season's 1-0 (7/1) success. If you’re less confident of Spurs taking all three points, how about the 14/1 for a 2-2 or even 80/1 for a 3-3 thriller?

Tottenham continue to deliver goals and with Chelsea without a clean sheet in their last six games, you’d hope the likes of Jermain Defoe (8/5), Gareth Bale (3/1) and perhaps even Sebastien Bassong (14/1) could break their resistance with a goal at any time.

The Sportingbet Podcast keeps on giving throughout the festive season and with the Premier League programme extending until Monday night, there are still plenty of tips worth tuning in for this and every weekend - as well as a £50 Free Bet to be won. Listen now!

Odds correct at time of writing.
