Tottenham vs Brentford LIVE!

Brentford shrugged off an eight-month ban imposed on striker Ivan Toney as Bryan Mbeumo scored twice in a 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday in their penultimate Premier League game of an impressive season.

Harry Kane's 28th league goal of the campaign, a stunning free-kick, put the hosts ahead and they dominated before half-time in their last home game of the season.

But seventh-placed Tottenham's hopes of qualifying for Europe suffered yet another blow after the break as Cameroonian forward Mbeumo dispatched two clinical left-foot finishes to turn the game on its head in the space of 12 minutes.

It prompted home chants against chairman Daniel Levy, who admitted in his programme notes it had been an “immensely difficult season” for the club. The volume increased when Yoane Wissa wrapped it up for Brentford in the 88th minute from Mbeumo's pass.

Ryan Mason explains Spurs collapse

15:03 , Marc Mayo

Ryan Mason has suggested that Tottenham’s lack of fitness played a key role in their defeat to Brentford on Saturday.

“I think there’s many different reason why intensity drops,” he told BT Sport post-match.

“I think if you want to be an intense team you have to work and train as an intense team, that’s probably been a difficulty of getting this role at this stage of the season having worked a different way for a period of time.

“But I thought we were keen to show what we want to be and become. In the first half we did that but we probably couldn’t sustain it for 95 minutes.”

Highlights: Mbeumo makes it 1-1

14:34 , Marc Mayo

FULL TIME! Tottenham 1-3 Brentford

14:31 , Marc Mayo

A huge cheer from the away end before a big old boo from the remaining home fans.

14:26 , Marc Mayo

90+5 mins: Chalk up another Mee block! A superb stance in front of goal denies Porro’s drive.

The corner bounces clear to the Spaniard, who lumps one at goal again and again sees a Brentford body block it!

14:25 , Marc Mayo

90+4 mins: Slick play with Richarlison found in the middle around Son and Kane.

It leads nowhere though, and is all a bit too-little, too-late.


14:23 , Marc Mayo

90+2 mins: RAYA, TAKE A BOW!

Superb stop denies Richarlison’s header, onto the post! And he then saves another effort from the Brazilian!

From the corner, Son fires into the crowd before Moura scuffs wide.

14:22 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: NINE minutes added on.

14:21 , Marc Mayo

89 mins: Thomas Frank responds to the goal by taking Wissa and Hickey off for Dasilva and Roerslev.

The home fans are filing out in their numbers...

GGGGOOOOOOAAAALLLL!!! Tottenham 1-3 Brentford

14:19 , Marc Mayo

88 mins: WISSA! That. Is. That.

Skipp gives it away and Mbeumo lays it off for another calm finish in front of the away fans!

14:17 , Marc Mayo

86 mins: Fantastic header from Mee after Porro’s corner looked threatening, and he stays down after getting lumped by Richarlison for his troubles.

Chants of ‘we want Levy out’ chime off the home end.

14:16 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: Perisic on for Davies in Mason’s last throw of the dice.

14:14 , Marc Mayo

83 mins: This game is in full drift mode.

Angry calls from fans come as Davies hesitates on the ball, Spurs not having the confidence to play it direct and with tempo like in the first half.

14:11 , Marc Mayo

80 mins: Calls for a penalty from the home fans as Richarlison hits the deck up against Henry.

Nothing in it, really, and Kane shot over the bar moments later anyway.

Time is running out for Tottenham!

14:09 , Marc Mayo

78 mins: Another defensive Brentford change as Zanka replaces Schade.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

14:09 , Marc Mayo

Brentford have done so well to turn this game on its head and take the sting out of the occasion.

The atmosphere has gone flat and Spurs’ forwards, who were so lively in the first half, have barely had a kick since the interval.

14:06 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: Kulusevski and Royal are the next to be taken off by Spurs, Richarlison and Porro their replacements.

14:04 , Marc Mayo

73 mins: Completely flat atmosphere inside the stadium, very little sense of pushing the team on for a late rally.

An all-too familiar feeling falling across the home fans.

14:03 , Marc Mayo

71 mins: Baptiste on for Jensen, which will likely push Brentford into five at the back.

13:59 , Marc Mayo

68 mins: Henry booked for dragging back Kulusevski.

13:57 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: There it is, Lucas is on for some final-home-game heroics.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:57 , Marc Mayo

Two terrific Mbuemo finishes have turned this game on its head, massively denting Spurs’ European hopes. Mason has called for Lucas Moura, who is going to get a farewell appearance in this stadium. Penny for Richarlison’s thoughts.

13:56 , Marc Mayo

64 mins: What a nightmare second half for Spurs, so often this is when they rouse themselves for a comeback and yet that is exactly what has happened to them today!

GGGOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!! Tottenham 1-2 Brentford

13:52 , Marc Mayo


It’s a bit of a carbon copy as Hickey slips in a ball for Mbeumo, in behind as he slots the shot past Forster. Well then!

13:51 , Marc Mayo

59 mins: A chance for Tottenham to gain some respite amid continued Brentford pressure as Danjuma receives treatment on the turf.

13:48 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: Over from Kane!

A speedy attack from Spurs leads to Kulusevski finding the striker after neatly beating Mee... yet the shot is far too high after a slip from Kane.

13:48 , Marc Mayo

56 mins: More threat from the visitors as a cross is cleared for Mbeumo to rifle a volley straight back at them with change - Forster holds.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:46 , Marc Mayo

Spurs have been made to rue those missed chances in the first half by a smart finish from Mbeumo.

Brentford on the beach during the first half but they have come out with fresh impetus (and could still finish above Spurs this season).

13:45 , Marc Mayo

53 mins: Spurs straight back on the front foot, Kulusevski getting himself caught in two minds before a weak pass to Royal is cleared.

A corner comes in, eventually leading to an offside Kane’s shot meeting instant resistance.

GGGGOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! Tottenham 1-1 Brentford

13:41 , Marc Mayo


Spurs fall asleep as a simple pass to the winger allows him to cut inside onto his left and fire past Forster.

There goes that calm...

13:40 , Marc Mayo

47 mins: A fairly calm start to the half from Spurs, in front of a calm home crowd. Tranquility in these parts is far from guaranteed these days, mind.

Kick-off! Tottenham vs Brentford

13:36 , Marc Mayo

The second half begins as the sun comes back out in the capital.

Brentford change

13:36 , Marc Mayo

Frank Onyeka, who was crunched by Yves Bissouma by a foul late in the half, is off for the more forward-minded Mikkel Damsgaard.

What Ryan Mason will want from Spurs

13:33 , Marc Mayo

More of the same will be the order of the day from Tottenham, whose front-foot approach has worked so far.

That second goal is a necessity however, to avoid this becoming their latest missed opportunity.

Ryan Mason may also want to reinforce his right flank too, where the Bees have focused their attacks.

Plenty to ponder for Brentford

13:27 , Marc Mayo

The visitors have failed to manage a shot on target while leaking nine Spurs efforts so far.

Thomas Frank may be worried his midfield is being bypassed too easily in that sense, while wanting his threatening-looking counter-attacking system to be a little more efficient.

First-half highlights: Harry Kane breaks the deadlock

13:24 , Marc Mayo

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:21 , Marc Mayo

Good half from Spurs, who lead through Kane’s brilliant (sort of) free-kick. Emerson, Danjuma, Son and Kulusevski all had chances to extend their lead.

Refreshing to see positive football and loads of movement and interchanges in the final third!

Half time! Tottenham 1-0 Brentford

13:20 , Marc Mayo

Raya denies Kulusevski at the near post as Spurs make a strong finish to a good half for them in north London.


13:17 , Marc Mayo


That should be 2-0, as Kulusevski does incredibly well to keep an attack going under pressure from Henry.

Slick passing between Davies, Son and Kulusevski sees Son dart in behind, cut back and have a shot well blocked!

13:16 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Four minutes added on.

13:16 , Marc Mayo

44 mins: Raya comes off his line to pick an overhit ball by Bissouma, playing an audacious first-time pass on the volley which manages to find a Brentford man!

Bissouma then launches a pretty reckless challenge on Wissa, which fortunately for him only draws a booking. It was a bit borderline...

13:14 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: Kane is basically playing in the hole with Kulusevski up front, and he does very well by the halfway line to squeeze out an attack.

Son spins in a good cross for Danjuma to stoop and head across goal... and wide!

13:10 , Marc Mayo

39 mins: What can wrestle this game from a low-key end ot the half?

Spurs are happy to knock it around for the time being, attempting to draw Brentford in before launching a quick attack.

Henry turns the ball behind for a corner after Royal’s latest overlap. Raya easily collects the set piece.

13:08 , Marc Mayo

37 mins: After a spell of treatment, it looks like the Brentford goalkeeper will continue.

13:06 , Marc Mayo

34 mins: A bit more patient from Brentford this time as Schade drifts in from the left and a lay-off is hit first time by Jensen... over the bar!

And a break with Raya down injured.

13:02 , Marc Mayo

31 mins: It’s not quite coming together every time for this Tottenham attack, yet the home fans may not mind that.

Kulusevski in particular is getting about a lot and showing plenty of invention, which is making for an entertaining display - if not the most clinical.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

13:00 , Marc Mayo

Making his first League start since New Year’s Day, Bissouma is really catching the eye in the Spurs midfield. His lack of minutes this season is one of the many frustrations about Spurs’ campaign.

12:58 , Marc Mayo

26 mins: A dangerous header by Mee from Jensen’s long throw is spotted nicely by Forster before Spurs launch a counter.

Danjuma just isn’t sure whether to shoot or find a team-mate before a pass is snaffled up by the defence.

Off the line!

12:55 , Marc Mayo

24 mins: Henry heads clear Royal’s goalbound header!

A delightful flick from Kulusevski had set Son free down the left, with a neat cross dinked to the Brazilian.

The following corner is nodded wide by Sanchez.

12:52 , Marc Mayo

20 mins: Harsh foul on Skipp for getting the better of Onyeka, just as he did to win the free-kick that led to the goal.

This time, Jarred Gillett penalises the Tottenham midfielder despite him seeming to get the ball.

Ryan Mason is booked for his protests.

12:50 , Marc Mayo

19 mins: A round of applause for Lucas Moura, who trots out for a warm-up down the touchline on his last home game for the club.

12:48 , Marc Mayo

17 mins: Brentford certainly want to attack with pace and tempo, this time coming forward quickly to win a foul off Bissouma.

It gives the visitors the chance to load the box, Jensen’s ball beating everyone.

12:44 , Marc Mayo

13 mins: Good clearance behind his own goal from Davies onto Forster, inside his six-yard box after Schade’s dangerous run.

Brentford look to be targeting that left wing.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

12:44 , Marc Mayo

I’m not sure that technically counts as a direct free-kick given Kulusevski rolled him the ball but regardless it’s a stunning strike from Kane. Goal number 28 in the Premier League this season.

What a player.

12:43 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: Son bursts in from a Kane through ball but allows Hickey to get back and put him off with the ball caught under his feet.

Still, the winger flashes a shot at Raya’s goal which the keeper parries away.

12:41 , Marc Mayo

9 mins: Well that truly was something. Does it count as a free-kick goal? Kulusevski nudged it with a quick backheel before Kane darted to the right and curled in a beauty.

Goal No28 of the Premier League season for the striker.

GGGGOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!! Tottenham 1-0 Brentford

12:38 , Marc Mayo

7 mins: Quick movement from Tottenham sees Skipp upended by Onyeka’s late challenge.

That sets up a free-kick spot 25 yards or so from Raya’s goal, just towards the left side. Kane and Kulusevski over it...

The Swede lays it off and KANE BURIES IT! WOW!

12:35 , Marc Mayo

4 mins: Henry gets forward well down the left to spark a counter, hitting an early cross that bobbles up for Mbeumo... his strike is high and wide.

Straight up the other end, Kane’s deflected hit is gathered easily enough by the goalkeeper.

12:34 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: Also a few eyes on Raya in the Brentford goal today, he’s spoken openly about his future with Tottenham tipped to sign him as a replacement for Lloris.

Dan Kilpatrick at Tottenham Stadium

12:32 , Marc Mayo

Dejan Kulusevski has said his preferred position is No.10 and this afternoon he’s finally starting there for Spurs in Ryan Mason’s bold 4-2-3-1 system.

Arnaut Danjuma is on the right with Heung-min Son left.

12:32 , Marc Mayo

1 min: Looks like a 4-2-3-1 for Spurs with Kulusevski central behind Kane.

Brentford in their typical 4-3-3.

Kick-off! Tottenham vs Brentford

The Spurs and the Bees face off in this capital clash.

A summery atmosphere in north London

12:28 , Marc Mayo

Polite applause welcomes the two teams out, rather than any raucous noise.

‘Glory glory Tottenham Hotspur’ plays out with the supporters hardly joining in.

A typical lunchtime, end-of-season sort of atmosphere.

Here come the players!

12:26 , Marc Mayo

12:18 , Marc Mayo

“We see the importance of this game, hopefully we can get three points today.

“[Cristian Romero] got injured in the Villa game, early on. After 10-15 minutess he went down, he carried on and sustained an injury. [Him and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg] were kind of enforced on us.

“The other two hopefully bring some energy in front of our home fans.”

Thomas Frank delivers the latest on Ivan Toney

11:58 , Marc Mayo

“He’s emotional and sad, but also in a way settled now there’s no uncertainty anymore. We know what the sanction is, eight months out.

“So now we need to move forward and do our best to support him.

“He got a hamstring injury against Liverpool so he was already out today and for the next game. No matter what we had to try something new.

“But of course you can’t just snap your finger and replace 20 goals.

Lucas Moura set for north London farewell

11:54 , Marc Mayo

Today’s Tottenham programme cover star is Lucas Moura, who will leave the club when his contract expires in the summer.

Named on the bench, the Brazilian winger revealed his emotions as he told Sky Sports: “Difficult to speak, I need to hold the tears.

“It’s been five years, incredible time and I don’t want to think about the last game. It was a gift to play for Spurs, a great adventure for me and I enjoyed it a lot.

“It’s always sad to say goodbye, especially when you love the play you are. You love the people you work with. It’s very difficult, but it’s part of the process.

“Great memories, great moments that I will keep in my heart forever.”

Brentford make one change

11:44 , Marc Mayo

Frank Onyeka replaces Mikkel Damsgaard in the Bees midfield.

It’s an otherwise unchanged line-up from the one that beat West Ham, with Kevin Schade leading the line in Ivan Toney’s absence.

Big calls made by Ryan Mason

11:41 , Marc Mayo

A tinker with the system and four personnel changes for Spurs!

Out go Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Cristian Romero - not even on the bench - along with Richarlison and Pedro Porro.

In comes Arnaut Danjuma for his first Tottenham start while Yves Bissouma, Dejan Kulusevski and Davinson Sanchez all get the nod in what looks like a 4-2-3-1.

In his programme notes, the Tottenham chairman has acknowledged a “difficult” season while paying tribute to Ryan Mason.

“We made footballing decisions over recent seasons based on ambition and a desire to bring success to our Club and they have not delivered what we had hoped. Your frustration has been understandable and all of us at the Club have shared it.

“We have undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of our footballing operations. Scott Munn joins us in the summer as our new Chief Football Officer and we look forward to sharing further news with you post-season.

“Today, we need to focus on finishing the season as strongly as we can and get behind Ryan Mason and Vicky Jepson and their respective teams. I want to specifically thank Ryan. Not for the first time, Ryan, who has been with us since the age of seven, who has Spurs in his blood, has taken the reins and led the team, supported by Matt Wells, Nigel Gibbs, Perry Suckling and Gianni Vio, through these last few fixtures.”

Harry Redknapp urges Spurs to ‘have a go'

10:52 , Marc Mayo

Ryan Mason should shun making a decision between starting Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison - by starting both of them in a four-man attack.

That is according to Harry Redknapp, who told iNews: “I’d like to see Tottenham have a go.

“I would play with a forward line of Kulusevski, Richarlison, Son and Harry Kane. I’d have a go. I’d think ‘You’ve got four incredible forwards here, let’s go and win football matches’. They don’t, they go one up, play three at the back. Have a go!

“When I managed Tottenham – I was back with the boys last weekend [for a charity game] – I played two wingers home and away, Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale. I played two up top, whether it was Defoe, Adebayor, Pavlyuchenko, Crouch. We played with two forwards.

“They need to be positive, that’s a big problem for them.”

Tottenham vs Brentford LIVE!

10:02 , Marc Mayo

Spurs play their final home game of what has been a rollercoaster season with Brentford today’s visitors.

This lunchtime kick-off could go a long way to deciding Tottenham’s fate, particularly in terms of European qualification.

Victory could be enough to see off the threat of Aston Villa, who beat Ryan Mason’s side a week ago yet face tricky games against Liverpool and Brighton to finish the season.

But a top-six finish will likely require favours against both Villa and the Seagulls along with a perfect record in their remaining games.

Brentford, meanwhile, begin life after Ivan Toney. The striker begins an eight-month ban this week, raising big questions over where the Bees will find their goals.

Sat ninth in the table but almost certainly too far back for a late European finish, they are at least set to end up in the top half.
