Welcoming rookie Brentford, the goal of coach Antonio Conte’s teachers and students must be nothing but 3 points. Against an opponent who is both weak and has an extremely poor record away from home, Spurs will not have much difficulty to get another victory and continue to have a chance to soon win a place in the Top 4.
Sergio Reguilon’s late penalty on penalties against Leeds United at home in the last round helped Tottenham get 3 extremely important points. They officially overcame the underrated team Brighton Hove Albion to take 7th place with 19 points (just 1 point more than Brighton Hove Albion).
Only having to host Brentford at home in round 14 of the English Premier League, Tottenham will continue their winning streak. Remember, Spurs’ form in the Premier League is stabilizing again. In the last 2 matches, coach Antonio Conte’s army drew only 1 (against the 14th-ranked Everton team), while winning the remaining 1 match. In particular, at dawn on this Friday, they also have the home ground of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where the London team won the last two matches on all fronts, most notably a 3-2 victory in the match against Vitesse Arnhem at the Europa Conference League.
With Brentford, it must be recognized that the rookie of the English Premier League has not played badly since the beginning of the season until now. 12th place with 16 points after 13 rounds is an acceptable achievement for teachers and coaches Thomas Frank. Last round, at home, The Bees almost defeated the 14th-ranked team by more than 1 goal, when they had a close 1-0 victory in a tight match.
But remember, Brentford’s record away from home has been awful. In the last 3 away matches, The Bees did not win 1 win and lost 2 matches. Most notably, in those 3 matches, coach Thomas Frank and his team also let the home team concede a total of 11 times. With such incompetence, it is difficult to put faith in the rookie team’s chances of winning points.
