A wonderful Sunday afternoon football game is in prospect live on Sky Sports 1 when these two sides meet in this London derby.
Both teams are in good form coming into this game and both have goal scorers in red hot form - Bale for Tottenham and Walcott for Arsenal.
This fixture is always full of goals with close to thirty being scored in the last seven fixtures and there is no reason to think that this is going to change on Sunday. Both teams to score is 11/20 at Betvictor - £10 returns £15.50.
And if you think that is buying money then over 2.5 goals is 7/10.
In the anytime goalscorer market no surprise that Gareth Bale is the red hot favourite at 1/1 whist Theo Walcott is 11/4.
Spurs have the better recent record with no defeats in the last ten and with home advantage I'm going for them to inflict more misery on Arsene Wenger and his wonky Arsenal team. You just can't keep selling top talent like Van Persie and replacing them with inferior substitutes and expect to maintain your position.
I'm all for financial prudence but the reality is that in the higher echolons of the Premier League you need to be prepared to spend outrageous transfer fees if you are going to keep breathing the rarefied atmosphere.
Spurs to win then, over 2.5 goals and Bale to be anytime goal scorer.
