Arsenal take on Tottenham in the big North London derby lunchtime, with punters and fans able to get 6/1 on the Gunners to take victory, a boost from their normal odds of 11/8 with Paddy Power.
Its proving a very popular offer, with fans and punters alike fancying Arsene Wenger and the Gunners to continue their fine form.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could spring a surprise selection against Spurs this weekend with the French manager hinting that Alexis Sanchez may be fit to play.
The Chilean attacker was believed to have been ruled out of the fixture due to a hamstring injury, however the Arsenal boss has revealed that he could feature.
“He wants to play, he’s so keen,” said Wenger.
“[Telling him he’s not playing] is not easy! He wants to play of course. He’s very keen and thinks he can even defy the medical people because he’s so keen.
“I don’t know yet [if he could feature], I need medical advice on that and need as well to see what he can do in training.”
While the inclusion of the 17 goal star would be a major bonus for Arsenal, Wenger has admitted that he does not need Sanchez this weekend if he is not fit
“We have enough offensive power. We don’t need to worry about being short on that front,” said the Frenchman, who started with a front four of Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud in the 5-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend.
With Sanchez unlikely to start at any rate, Wenger is likely to stick with the aforementioned attacking threat although Danny Welbeck is also set to come into the reckoning, again from the bench.
The Gunners, unbeaten in their last three without the concession of a goal, will be without Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere (both ankle), Mathieu Debuchy (shoulder) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (groin).
Spurs meanwhile will have a fully fit squad to choose from with Emmanuel Adebayor set to be included after his deadline day loan move to West Ham fell through.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won three of their last five, including a 5-3 win over Chelsea early in January. In all they have not lost at home since a 2-1 loss to Stoke in November.
