Tottenham blow 2-0 lead at Arsenal

Tottenham allowed a two-goal lead to slip at arch-rivals Arsenal as their nine-year wait for a league win at the Emirates goes on.

It was all rosy for Mauricio Pochettino's side after Christian Eriksen gave them a tenth-minute lead following a mistake by Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Spurs were in dreamland after Harry Kane netted a 40th-minute penalty after a foul on Heung-Min Son by Granit Xhaka.

Tottenham were then 1-7 with bet365 to finally claim an away league success at Arsenal but Unai Emery's side crucially grabbed a lifeline with a goal from Alexandre Lacazette in first-half injury time.

It was a case of deja vu for Tottenham who had headed into the break 2-1 up at Arsenal last year before suffering a 4-2 defeat, but despite dominating the second period, Arsenal were able to only muster Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's equaliser this time.

Arsenal's recovery was bad news for Betway who had paid out on a Tottenham win under their Lead and Win offer.

The Gunners have taken seven points from their opening five games while Tottenham have increased their tally to five.

But bookmakers still believe Tottenham will be able to book their place in the Champions League for the fourth successive season and they are 8-15 with bet365 to finish in the top four.

They are 15-8 not to be dining at European football's top table next season with Betfair and Paddy Power, while the Gunners are 10-11 for a top-four spot.

Eriksen's inclusion in the Tottenham team was taken as an indication that he would be staying at the north London club after Monday's closure of the European transfer window.

The Danish midfielder's contract runs out at the end of the season and his future has been the subject of speculation all summer, but he is 1-4 with Paddy Power to remain at Spurs.

Everton claimed their second win of the season as two goals from Richarlison helped the Toffees to a 3-2 home win over Wolves.

Marco Silva's side are 10-3 with Betfred to earn a place in the top six, while Wolves are 6-1 in the same market with Betfair and Paddy Power.

Celtic are a general 1-3 to retain their Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title after their 2-0 win over Rangers, who are three points behind their rivals and available to back at 9-4 with a number of firms.
