Brentford vs Tottenham LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal updates as Ivan Toney hits bar

Conte on Eriksen’s return to football at Brentford

Tottenham Hotspur face Brentford in the Premier League in a match that is set to be crucial in the battle for Champions League qualification.

Spurs have won five of their last seven Premier League games since exiting the FA Cup in March to get their top-four bid on track under Antonio Conte.

However a 1-0 defeat to Brighton last weekend rather opened the door to their rivals Arsenal and Manchester United – and the Gunners took advantage by beating the Red Devils 3-1 earlier today

Brentford, meanwhile, have awakened from their winter slump to win five of their last six games and pull clear of the Premier League relegation zone. Their form has been inspired by Christian Eriksen, who is set to face his old club Spurs for the first time today, with the Bees winning all five games in which the Denmark international has started.

Follow all the action from the crucial clash in west London below:

Kick off: Brentford restart the game with a pass back to David Raya who belts it long. Tottenham recover the ball and knock it back to Hugo Lloris. Bryan Mbuemo charges him down and the goalkeeper has to quickly hoof the ball over to the right side of the pitch where it bounces out for a Brentford throw in.

Brentford 0 – 0 Tottenham

This is a big half-time team talk for Antonio Conte and Spurs. They know they need to win to catch up to Arsenal in the race for the top four but Brentford have been the better team.

Spurs need to come out swinging in the second half and take the game to the Bees.

Half-time: Brentford 0 – 0 Tottenham

45+1 mins: Nothing to separate the teams as they head into the break. Tottenham haven’t played well but that’s due in part to how solid Brentford have been.

Their press has been good and they’ve had the best chance at goal. Ivan Toney rattling the crossbar with his headed effort.

Brentford 0 – 0 Tottenham

42 mins: Still no shots on target from either side. Brentford have all but nullified Tottenham’s attacking qualities. This feels a lot like the Brighton game for Antonio Conte’s men.

If they aren’t careful the Bees will take the lead and then they’ll find it really difficult to score.

33 mins: Son utilises his fancy footwork to shimmy around Vitaly Janelt and take the ball to the edge of the penalty area. He feeds it out wide to Ryan Sessegnon before getting clipped and going down. Sessegnon flicks the ball over to the back post but can’t pick out Harry Kane and the ball skips behind for a goal kick.
