Tottenham Hotspur entertained Brentford at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they looked to collect all three points at home in the Premier League. Spurs made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the eighth-minute courtesy of Harry Kane’s excellent strike. The North London club managed to get to the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
Bryan Mbemo scored a quick-fire brace soon after the re-start which turned the game on its head for Brentford. Yoane Wissa ended up killing the game off for the Bees in the 88th minute with a tidy finish from close range. The contest finished with Tottenham suffering a poor 3-1 loss in North London.
Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham Hotspur player fared during the match against the Bees.
GK: Fraser Forster – 5/10
He made just one good save in the game and won’t be pleased about conceding three goals in the second half.
RB: Emerson Royal – 6.5/10
Emerson did his fair share of defending and was a threat going forward.
CB: Davinson Sanchez – 6.5/10
He got stuck in with a few crunching tackles and managed to make a few important clearances at the back.
CB: Clement Lenglet – 6.5/10
Lenglet didn’t hesitate to put his foot through the ball when required but his efforts were not enough in the end.
LB: Ben Davies – 6.5/10
Davies performed his defensive duties well and engineered one key chance in the opponent’s half.
RM: Arnaut Danjuma – 6/10

Bissouma had a couple of bright moments in the game but offered very little in the final third.

The English talent made one crucial interception at the centre of the park but was also guilty of making a poor error at the back which cost his team a goal.
LM: Heung-min Son – 7/10
Son caused plenty of problems for the Brentford defenders but didn’t do enough to register a goal.
ST: Dejan Kulusevski – 7/10
He was a constant menace in the final third and has got an assist to show for his efforts.

The Brazilian sensation made one decent chance in the opposition half.
RM: Pedro Porro – 6.5/10
He made a good cameo off the bench.
ST: Richarlison – 7/10
