Berbatov back in London

Dimitar Berbatov will be hoping for a goalscoring return against his former arch-enemies Arsenal when AS Monaco come to the red half of north London for their Champions League Round of 16 first leg match tomorrow.

The Bulgarian is still remembered with affection for the 46 goals he scored for local rivals Spurs.

He scored twice for Fulham at the Emirates in a 3-3 draw in November 2012 and, though he turned 34 in January, the Bulgarian heads back to London as Monaco's top scorer this season.

Monaco are buoyed by their 1-0 derby win at Nice. They're fourth in Ligue 1 with just one defeat in their last 17 matches.

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim said: "It's normal that everyone thinks Arsenal will qualify.

"I too think Arsenal are favourites but in football sometimes money and the favourites don't win."
