Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford match preview

Are Tottenham Hotspur set to miss out on European qualification for the first time since 2010?

A week ago, Spurs’ top seven hopes suffered a serious set back, beaten 2-1 by direct-rivals Aston Villa in Birmingham.

Harry Kane halved the deficit late on from the penalty spot, before Son Heung-min though he’d salvaged a point, only for his late goal to be disallowed for offside.

This defeat means Ryan Mason’s team have won just one of their last six, losing four of them.

Spurs sat fourth in the Premier League as recently as 5 April, but have slid all the way down to seventh, above Villa on goal difference and now below Brighton.

Remember, fifth and sixth qualify for the Europa League, seventh goes into the Europa Conference League while eighth gets no Europe at all.

In contrast, Brentford will end the campaign in the top half of the top-flight for the first time for the first time in 85 years.

The Bees beat West Ham last Sunday, with Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa on target in the first half in West London.

So now, Thomas Frank’s team have now won three of their last four, meaning they remain ninth, now only a mere four points below their hosts, which is remarkable.

Brentford have lost each of their last five visits to Tottenham, both trips to the new stadium ending 2-0, with their most-recent away victory over Spurs coming in 1905.

Will that fact change at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?

Tottenham Hotspur team news

Yves Bissouma came off the bench last weekend, his first appearance since 5 February due to an ankle injury, so he could start this time, displacing Oliver Skipp.

Ivan Perišić and Dejan Kulusevski will also be hoping to return to the XI, in place of Ben Davies and Richarlison respectively.

With Eric Dier injured, Clément Lenglet will keep his place in the back three.

Meanwhile, after four and a half seasons with the club, the scorer of that hat-trick in Amsterdam Lucas Moura will wave goodbye to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as he’s out of contract.

Predicted XI (3-5-2): Forster; Emerson, Lenglet, Romero; Porro, Højbjerg, Bissouma, Perišić; Son Heung-min, Richarlison, Kane.

Brentford team news

Ivan Toney’s eight-month ban from footballing activity worldwide was announced on Wednesday, for breaching FA’s betting rules, meaning he cannot play until 16 January 2024.

He actually sat out last Sunday’s win over West Ham injured anyway with his deputy, Yoane Wissa, on target.

For games against ‘the big six’, especially away from home, Thomas Frank likes to switch to a back five, meaning Mathias Jørgensen is set to come in here.

Kristoffer Ajer is the other centre-back option; he hasn’t featured since early February due to injury, but has been on the bench for their last two matches.

Predicted XI (5-3-2): Raya; Hickey, Jørgensen, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Dasilva, Jensen, Janelt; Mbuemo, Wissa.
