Tottenham - Brentford: prediction "X"

Tottenham meet Brentford in a match of the 14th round of the Premier League. The Spurs' visit to Burnley over the weekend was canceled due to snowfall in the North of England. The resulting break may be more refreshing for Antonio Conte's players. Tottenham's commitments in the Conference League tournament certainly affect the performance of the Spurs, despite the rotations of the Italian.

Brentford took a valuable three points, beating Everton 1-0. The success ended a series of five consecutive games without success for the "Bees" and allowed them to secure a seven-point lead over Burnley. The only goal for Brentford fell after a well-scored penalty by Ivan Tony in the first minutes of the match. Everton controlled what was happening on the field and tried to return to the game, especially in the second half, but did not reach very clear positions in front of Brentford.

I expect the Bees will have far more work to do against Tottenham. Excluding the first few weeks, Brentford are not convincing at all in defense and have conceded three goals in their own goal on several occasions. Even Newcastle and Burnley in the relegation zone scored three goals for the Bees, as did Liverpool.

Antonio Conte also has something to improve in his team's performance in defense. After his appointment, the Spurs kept a dry net only on the visit to Everton, which ended in a draw. As host, Tottenham still scored two victories, scoring three goals for Vitesse and two for Leeds. Harry Kane is in good shape and will hope for a good performance against the hesitant defense of the guests.
