Standout Stats for derby day...

There are two big derbies on TV this weekend – in North London and the Midlands...

This week our Standout Stats include includes form from recent meetings between these local rivals:

  • Tottenham v Arsenal (Saturday 12.30pm, BT Sport) – in the last 9 North London derbies – going back to March 2014 – the Home team has won the Most Corners. This season Tottenham have won the Most Corners in 77% of Premier League Home games at Wembley...
  • Aston Villa v Birmingham (Sunday 12pm, Sky Sports) – Birmingham are the top team in the Championship for Under 2.5 Goals with an 80% Away record. Eight of the last 9 Midlands derbies have gone Under 2.5 Goals – with a 0-0 last time, and a 1-0 & 1-1 last season...

Under 2.5 Goals bets are widely available with all major bookies.

Most Corners bets (sometimes called Corners Match Bets) are available with the likes of William Hill, Bet365, BetVictor and Skybet.
