Match Summary and Analysis

Arsenal’s victory over Manchester United earlier in the day placed a pressure on Tottenham Hotspur as they understand that a win is needed. However, that was not the reflection of the game as Brentford came out in full force when the match started.

Christain Ericksen was running the show for Brentford and they nearly scored the first goal in the 18th minute. The former Spurs player created Brentford’s best chance of the half as his corner was headed against the bar by Toney.

Tottenham most threatening attempt came from Rodrigo Bentancur’s wild effort in the 28 minutes that went well over. The North London club were the happiest team when the first half whistle was blown ad Antonio Conte dashed down the tunnel to speak with his team.

The rebound fell to Eriksen whose low shot from a tight angle was saved down low by Lloris and then scrambled away by Ben Davies.
