Close Call For Sky Bet As Foyth Avoids Costly Booking
Sky Bet avoided a bookie bashing from this afternoon's North London Derby as Juan Foyth failed to receive a booking.
Two punters could have cost the betting company over £7,000 if the young Spurs centre-back had have just been shown a card by Mike Dean.
Both Sky Bet users backed the massive 300/1 request a bet special which included seven selections, one staked £15 which would have returned £4,515, while the other placed £10 on the bet that would have landed £3,010.
They needed Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Spurs striker Harry Kane both to score, four plus corners each and Eric Dier, Juan Foyth, Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka all to be carded.
Aubameyang opened the scoring with a penalty 10 minutes in, before Kane slotted home his spot kick to fire Tottenham into a 2-1 lead.
While Dier received a yellow card for his celebration after pulling the game level at 1-1, Mustafi was next in the referee's book as he was shown a yellow five minutes later.
And Arsenal midfielder Xhaka was booked four minutes into the second half.
Nine cards were shown throughout the game (seven yellows, one red), however, Foyth failed to be shown a card, although, he arguably could have been as he clashed with Ramsey into injury-time, but Dean waved on play.
We bet the punters were screaming at the tele!
