Spurs 3/1 to repeat Old Trafford heroics at Emirates

After a frantic festive period the Premier League takes a breather this weekend, with the FA Cup third round upon us. Pick of the ties is no doubt the north London derby at the Emirates on Saturday evening, and Tottenham will be in confident mood after taking three points at Old Trafford in midweek.

Arsenal may be riding high in the Premier League but injuries have ravaged their forward line with Nicklas Bendtner joining Olivier Giroud on the treatment table. Will Arsene Wenger prioritise his quest for a first league title in 10 years and put out a second-string side, as he has done in the FA Cup in recent years?

If you fancy Spurs to repeat their Old Trafford heroics, you can get them at 3/1 with bet365.

It probably can't get much worse for David Moyes at the moment, with Tottenham's victory inflicting a fourth Premier League home loss on United. The cups have provided some respite for Moyes this season, however, with United winning their Champions League group and through to the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup. They're 4/11 to continue the trend, although Swansea are 15/2 to make it back-to-back home defeats for United.

The FA Cup is all about giant killings - and this year three non-league clubs have made it through to the third round. Grimsby will face Huddersfield, Kidderminister host Peterborough and Macclesfield are at home to Sheffield Wednesday. Hardly the glamour ties they wanted at Premier League grounds, but progress to the next round would still be a fine achievement. Grimsby are 10/3, Kidderminster 16/5 and Macclesfield 4/1 to make it through - take your pick.
