  Arsenal and United will serve up goal feast fit for top table at the Emirates

Peter Crouch's 89th-minute goal did more than give Liverpool a record Champions League win. It also ensured one Paddy Power customer collected £5,000 after gambling £10 on an 8-0 victory for Rafael Benítez's side at odds of 500-1. Sporting Index also suffered as one client bought Liverpool superiority over Besiktas at 1.9 for £10,000 a goal, resulting in a £61,000 win.

However, those amounts pale next to the winnings of one William Hill customer, who correctly forecast the half-time and full-time results in matches featuring Internazionale (7-2), Sporting Club (4-1) and Slavia Prague (6-1) as well as predicting that Sevilla (8-13) and Fenerbahce would win. A £240 accumulator netted £123,122.11.

Sky Bet said Chelsea's 0-0 draw with Schalke knocked out over 10,000 such roll-ups while VC Bet said the stalemate saved them £30,000.

Manchester United were best backed in last week's fixture between the top two in the Premier League. VC Bet was saved an £80,000 pay-out thanks to the draw, although Ladbrokes reported one bet of £8,000 at 9-4 on the draw. Paddy Power reported eight bets of £5,000 on Arsenal.

Justin Rose was popular with customers of Ladbrokes (which made a £30,000 loss) and Sky Bet (one bet of £2,000 at 14-1) to win the Volvo Masters, though both firms were glad he denied the well-backed Ernie Els the Order of Merit title.

Hill's took more than 20 four-figure bets on Joe Calzaghe defeating Mikkel Kessler, including one of £7,000.
