Tottenham vs Brentford: Predictions
Tottenham are hoping to steady the ship and restart a top four challenge this season after bringing in Antonio Conte to replace Nuno Espirito Santo. The Lilywhites have picked up four points from a possible six in the Premier League since the Italian took to the dugout, from a goalless draw at Everton and a comeback win over Leeds.
An embarrassing defeat to Slovenian outfit Mura in the Europa Conference League will still be lingering over the side after their scheduled trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Sunday was postponed due to adverse weather conditions. Can Conte inspire the side to a much improved performance and win this Thursday night?
Brentford are enjoying their first Premier League season since winning promotion from the Championship last term. The Bees currently find themselves in 11th place in the table and they’ve already enjoyed some memorable matches, not least their opening weekend win over Arsenal and a thrilling 3-3 draw with title hopefuls Liverpool.
After picking up just one point from a possible 15 games in a run starting in mid-October, Thomas Frank’s men returned to winning form last weekend with Ivan Toney’s penalty handing them a 1-0 win over Everton. They’ve lost just once on the road this season, so may feel capable of upsetting the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium faithful here.
Tottenham vs Brentford: Match Stats
Despite some shaky form, Spurs have actually won four of their last five home matches in all competitions, but in all four of those victories they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet. Brentford do carry a real goal threat and haven’t failed to score in any of their last six matches, so we do expect both teams to find the net here.
Ivan Toney leads the line for Brentford by playing off the last man, but that does lead to him being flagged offside fairly often. With a total of 12 given against him, only two players have been caught offside more than the 25 year old so far this season in the Premier League and we’re backing him for at least one more against Tottenham on Thursday.
