class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With both Spurs and Arteta's men looking more comfortable in attack than defence this summer, Al Hain-Cole expects plenty of goals in their derby game
Tottenham and Arsenal will be aiming to finish their pre-seasons on a high when they meet at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Sunday’s Mind Series clash.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men put in a creditable performance against Chelsea in midweek, fighting back from two goals down to draw 2-2.
Tottenham vs Arsenal latest odds
Spurs are priced at 6/4 (2.50) with bet365 to head into next weekend’s Premier League kick-off in confident spirits with a victory against their local rivals.
Arsenal have failed to win any of their three official friendly matches this summer but can be backed at 6/4 (2.50) to come out on top on enemy territory here.
Just two of the last 10 encounters between this duo have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 23/10 (3.10) on them cancelling each other out in this one.

Tottenham vs Arsenal team news
Harry Kane is unlikely to be involved despite returning to training on Saturday, while Ryan Sessegnon is doubtful due to injury.
Thomas Partey could be out for a month after coming off with an ankle injury in last weekend’s defeat to Chelsea, with Gabriel Magalhaes also sidelined and Gabriel Martinelli still on holiday.
Tottenham vs Arsenal preview
While the hefty price tag spent on Ben White raised some eyebrows, it is no real surprise that Mikel Arteta has chosen to strengthen his backline.
Indeed, his team’s pre-season performances have shown a rather alarming lack of solidity in defence, conceding two goals in each of their official matches against Hibs, Rangers and Chelsea – also failing to keep clean sheets in training ground games against Watford and Millwall.
Even without Kane, a Spurs side that have hit the net eight times in their last three friendly fixtures will be confident of finding some joy in front of goal against that kind of opposition.
Tottenham vs Arsenal tips & predictions
With Tottenham also keeping just one clean sheet in four games this summer, odds of 17/20 (1.85) seem generous on over 2.5 goals being scored for their fourth game in a row and a fourth in four for Arsenal.
