Premier League Derby Double

If Carlsberg did Saturdays, then this Saturday February 7th was made by them. An early afternoon Premier League derby on BT Sports between Tottenham and Arsenal, shortly followed by another derby in the evening between Everton and Liverpool live on Sky Sports.

Premier League Derby

Premier League Derby – Tottenham v Arsenal

5th versus 6th in the early derby with just 2 points separating them. Arsenal have looked back to their formidable selves recently winning their last 3 games to nil, scoring 2 penalties in the process courtesy of Santi Carzola.

The London Derby has become a clean affair with only 1 red card in the last 6 meetings between the two, thanks to forgotten man Adebayor. So expect football to do the talking again in this fixture.

Since Spurs stuttered against Palace, they have notched up 2 victories so neither team will look to lose this one. So saying that and with the last 4 derbies being under 2.5 goals, we can see this game working out as a very low scoring draw.

  • Draw – 5/2
  • Under 2.5 Goals – 11/10

Premier League Derby – Everton v Liverpool

Onto the evening game now and 4 pints of Carlsberg later. Its Brendan Rodgers’ 100th Premier League game in charge of Liverpool and for his Captain, who just reached his 700th appearance, may have to sit this one out. Has Gerrard already played in his last Merseyside Derby?

These sides have been at the opposite end of the scale from each other in recent weeks. with Liverpool unbeaten since before Christmas and Everton winning only their first game since before Christmas on Saturday at Selhurst Park.

With the current form and the statistics of Everton not winning a derby since 2010, we can see this going only one way. A Liverpool victory.

Liverpool haven’t conceded a goal from open play since the turn of the year and in their last 3 away games, they have kept 3 clean sheets.

  • Liverpool Win – 5/4
  • Both Teams NOT to Score – 11/10

So sit back and relax on the couch and enjoy your football feast of a derby day double.

……If only Carlsberg could help with the Saturday night television too. Cheers!
