Sports betting: Carroll sunk by Howard's sway.
Manchester United's blunder keeper is expected to be axed for today's FA Cup tie against Exeter at Old Trafford following his howler against Spurs on Tuesday night.
And that means bookies are giving punters a real chance to cash in.
Bet365 have surely got it wrong in making Carroll evens favourite to be in goal for United's clash with Arsenal on February 1, the day after the transfer window closes. Under Fergie you don't make cock-ups like Tuesday's and survive - just ask Massimo Taibi and Fabien Barthez.
It means that unless Fergie buys a top-line stopper this month - and the rumour-mill is surprisingly quiet - Tim Howard is almost certain to be given an extended run. And the American is a stand-out 9-4 to start against Arsenal.
Who will be United's keeper against Arsenal? (bet365 bet): Evs Roy Carroll, 9-4 Tim Howard, 5-1 Ricardo, 20-1 Antti Niemi, 25-1 Edwin Van der Sar, Robert Green, 33-1 Shay Given, Carlo Cudicini.
CARROLL: Out of tune
