Yoane Wissa celebrates after giving Brentford the lead against Spurs


The Premier League action continues on Sunday afternoon as Brentford kick off their season against Tottenham. Thomas Frank’s team are hoping to build on an impressive season in the top-flight last year but face a tricky test against Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs.

New summer signing Mark Flekken is set to make his Brentford debut as with their previous first-choice goalkeeper David Raya close to joining Arsenal. Bryan Mbeumo should lead the line in the absence of Ivan Toney who remains banned until 2024 and defender Nathan Collins could make his Bees debut.

Elsewhere, Tottenham are coming to terms with the departure of Harry Kane. Kane completed his move to Bayern Munich yesterday and Postecoglou needs to come up with a way to emulate Kane’s impressive goals and assists tally. Brazilian forward, Richarlison, may be handed a starting role alongside new Spurs captain, Son Heung-min. James Maddison, Micky van de Ven and Guglielmo Vicario await their debuts too and could all play vital parts in today’s outing.

Follow all the action as Brentford host Tottenham:

Goal Emerson Aparecido Leite de Souza Júnior

After a cross is swept over from the right by Maddison, a tightly-marked Richarlison manages to flick the ball on with his head. However, Son slices the ball straight into the side-netting near the back post.

Due to the stoppages for VAR checks and Romero’s injury earlier on, we are now into 11 minutes of additional time at the end of the first half.

As Bissouma seeks to regain possession after his error gives the ball away, he hauls back Wissa and Brentford will have a free-kick deep inside their own half.

Having received the ball from Maddison, Bissouma tries his luck with a shot from outside the box, which is blocked.

Tottenham are trying to apply some sustained pressure on the Brentford box, but their hosts are standing strong. Aside from conceding the opening goal via a set-piece, the Bees are proving difficult to break down.

Following his strike today, Wissa has now been involved in four goals across his last four starts in the Premier League (three of his own and one assist). That’s as many as in his previous 13.

Richarlison and Emerson combine well on the edge of the box, but when Son receives the ball he can’t bring it under his spell and Spurs’ attack breaks down.
