Insight and Analysis: Tottenham vs Brentford Premier League 2021 Match Prediction
Tottenham vs Brentford Premier League 2021 Match Preview, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Prediction and Where to Watch.
Tottenham Hotspur have had extra rest days ahead of this midweek Premier League (PL) match after their weekend match against Burnley was postponed due to inclement weather.
That just means that this Spurs team has had more time to reflect about their devastating European defeat to Mura the previous time out.
As a result, manager Antonio Conte slammed his own team’s ‘not so high level’ in front of the media.
Surely, his teammates will be eager to disprove the illustrious Italian in this, their first-ever Premier League clash with Brentford.
They haven’t lost to them in any competition since 1948. (W8, D3).
Despite this, Spurs have lost their last five Premier League London derbies and will now try to prevent a sixth consecutive London derby defeat for the first time since 2003/04.
Brentford’s five-game winless streak in the Premier League came to an end last time out when they overcame Everton 1-0. (D1, L4).
A triumph that lifted the visitors out of the relegation zone.
The PL newcomers’ excellent away form should help them win again tonight.
As they have only lost one of their six away top-flight matches this season (W2, D3, L1).
Brentford have relished defying the odds in the Premier League, even if they haven’t exactly pulled up any trees in terms of form.
The fact that they won all of their points as outsiders prior to their most recent success exemplifies their capacity to surprise.
While the opening match favorite has only won 38% of Brentford’s Premier League games.Which is a lower rate than all but Crystal Palace games.

Antonio Conte will be without Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso, and Dane Scarlett for the visit of Brentford on Thursday.
Conte is likely to choose the same starting lineup that was supposed to play in Burnley before the game was postponed.
In place of Romero, Davinson Sanchez would start on the right side of the three-man defense.
Albeit he would have opposition from Japhet Tanganga.
Charlie Goode could keep his place in defence after his performance in Brentford’s 1-0 win over Everton. Kristoffer Ajer is still out.
David Raya, Josh Dasilva, and Julian Jeanvier are all missing, and Zanka’s excursion across the capital is too soon.
Tariqe Fosu-Henry will be absent for the foreseeable future after undergoing hamstring surgery.
Despite the short turnaround in games, Thomas Frank is unlikely to make any changes to his starting lineup.
Tottenham has kept three consecutive clean sheets against Brentford in all competitions.
In Tottenham’s last four home games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored (Premier League).
Under 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Tottenham’s last three encounters against Brentford in all competitions.
Brentford’s previous three away games have all had over 2.5 goals scored (Premier League)
Tottenham’s match against Burnley on Sunday was postponed due to heavy snowfall.Giving them some more recovery time before welcoming Brentford.
Given that their most recent match was a 2-1 loss to Mura in the Europa Conference League.
Antonio Conte had hoped for a chance for Spurs to fix their wrongs immediately away.
Brentford stopped a five-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.
With an Ivan Toney penalty securing all three points on home soil for the Bees.
This season, they’ve lost all but one of their five league games by more than one goal.
So they’ll be a tough test for Spurs in midweek.
Spurs are still adjusting to Antonio Conte’s expectations.
Brentford will not be take things lightly in north London, so a draw is the most likely result.
