The best derbies (upcoming) in English football


5. Swansea City vs Cardiff City

Let’s address the elephant in the room straight away: yes, they’re Welsh. But they both reside in the English football league and thus qualify for this list. Both teams have competed in the Premier League and Swansea actually won the Carabao Cup back in 2013 – although they now both compete in the Championship.

The rivalry is best summed up by the fact Swansea fans often wear swimming caps and armbands to the game to remind Cardiff fans of a particular incident in 1988, where fans chased their rivals into the sea after a game. It gets a bit fiery.

The next face of this rivalry comes up on the 20th of March in what Swansea City still remains best us online casinos favourite for winning to nil.

4. Arsenal vs Chelsea

The two most successful sides in London.

From cup finals, to competing for league titles, to managerial feuds, this rivalry has had it all over the years. The Gunners had the upper hand for the most of it, but in the last 20 years the Blues have really risen up to the challenge and even got one over their great rivals by becoming the first London team to win the Champions League.

3. Liverpool vs Everton

Whether it’s goals, brawls, red cards or just simply a stunning atmosphere, this derby tends to have it all. Liverpool are by far the more successful of the two clubs and haven’t lost a derby to the Toffees since 2010, while also winning trophies regularly in comparison to Everton, who haven’t won a trophy since 1995.

Everton ended their 24-game winless run at Anfield with a deserved 2-0 win over Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp’s men slipped to a fourth straight home defeat.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men came into the game as an underdog with real money casino games having won just one of the last 28 Premier League meetings with their great rivals but made the perfect start when Richarlison raced through (3) to finish past Alisson.

2. Manchester United vs Manchester City

The two biggest clubs in Manchester now compete regularly against one another for silverware. It wasn’t always that way though, with the Red Devils dominating English football for the best part of 20 years from the 90s onwards, but City’s billions have seen them catapult themselves into the title mix over the last decade.

They were dubbed the ‘noisy neighbours’ by legendary United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, and the rivalry peaked in the early 2010s when they embarked on some truly classic moments in English football history including that Wayne Rooney goal, and that Sergio Aguero moment.

1. Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

The most entertaining derby on the pitch in English football, the north London derby is one not to miss. And we have a stat to back up the claim, as its the highest scoring derby in English football.

Some of the best games in Premier League history have been NLDs, including the incredible 4-4 draw at the Emirates Stadium in 2008.
