Brentford predicted lineup vs Tottenham - Premier League

01 December 2021 08:15

Brentford travel to Tottenham on Thursday night, hoping to secure a second consecutive victory in the Premier League.

Thomas Frank's side recently ended a somewhat concerning run of four straight defeats with a 3-3 draw at Newcastle, before beating Everton 1-0 at home last time out. Those four points have built on the 12 accrued from their first seven fixtures (before that losing run), currently placing them at a very respectable and encouraging 11th in their maiden Premier League campaign.

They face a tough test on Thursday, travelling to Antonio Conte's Spurs, who have taken four points since the Italian's appointment - although they need to bounce back from a bitterly disappointing 2-1 defeat to NS Mura in the Europa Conference League last time out.

Here's who Frank could opt for to get a massive victory.


Brentford predicted lineup vs Tottenham - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Alvaro Fernandez (GK) - The young Spanish loanee will continue to deputise for the injured David Raya.

Charlie Goode (CB) - Was very good(e) last time out and deserves to retain his place in the starting XI - especially while Kristoffer Ajer remains absent.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - Proving as reliable as he was in the second tier, Jansson looks set for a 14th Premier League appearance of the season.

Ethan Pinnock (CB) - Lacked a bit of composure last time out, but a Brentford team without Pinnock in it just wouldn't look right.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Sergi Canos (RWB) - Came off against Everton with a slight niggle but Frank is confident of the key wing-back's inclusion at Spurs.

Frank Onyeka (CM) -
Came into the starting XI last time out and was excellent. A real powerhouse of a midfielder who certainly deserves his place in this side.

Christian Norgaard (CM) -
The epitome of assurance at the heart of this Brentford side, Frank will be sweating buckets on the Dane's availability for Thursday night.

Vitaly Yanelt (CM) -
A steady presence in the Bees midfield, Yanelt should be set for a fourth consecutive start here.

Rico Henry (LWB) - Like his wing-back colleague, Henry left the field on Sunday with a slight issue, although should be fit to feature against Tottenham.

3. Forwards

Yoane Wissa (ST) - We can all agree that Bryan Mbeumo has been brilliant to watch this term but, having gone five games without a goal, Frank may opt to switch it up a bit.

Ivan Toney (ST) - His match-winning penalty against Everton was his fourth Premier League goal of the season and his second in his last two. There's no way he doesn't start.
