PADDY ON SUNDAY: It's very Duff at the top.

IT'S hard to call today's big Premiership showdown, but Arsenal aren't going to surrender their title easily.

Arsenal have a tendency to win this fixture 2-1 and at 15-2 it's a fair price.

However, I don't think there'll be many more goals than that in this game.

A 2-1 win for Chelsea is 9-1 and I'm sure their fans will be piling into that.

I don't think either team can afford to lose so I'm going to go for a 1-1 draw

England stars John Terry and Frank Lampard love scoring at Highbury against the Gunners, and I think Chelsea's goal will come from one of these two.

Lampard is 10-1 to score first in the match and 11-2 to score first for Chelsea.

However, it's John Terry's containment of Monsieur Henry that will be the key to the game.

If he keeps the Frenchman quiet, the 12-1 on offer for the Chelsea skipper to be man of the match will look a sound bet.

Either that or the Damien Duff will run rings round Lauren - our man has been on fire of late and it's a 7-1 shot for Duffer to be Man of the Match.

If there's a red card in the match Paddy Power will be refunding all losing bets on the correct score and first-last goalscorer.

Speaking of payouts, Steven Gerrard's screamer in the 3-1 win over Olympiakos was a big earner in more ways than one.

The late, late goal not only ensured Liverpool a few more millions in the bank by reaching the next stage of the Champions League but it also triggered Paddy Power's Money-Back Special, refunding all losing bets on the match.

It was a big payout, but we're foolish enough to see if lightning can strike twice and will be offering returns yet again if Gerrard repeats the feat and scores the last goal against Portsmouth on Tuesday.
