Tottenham take on Brentford, looking to bounce back from European embarrassment, in front of their own fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night.
The last game for Antonio Conte’s side was an embarrassing 2-1 Europa Conference League defeat to Slovenian minnows NS Mura, and their Premier League match against Burnley at the weekend was postponed due to poor weather.
They face Thomas Frank’s promoted side knowing a win would take them up to sixth, a point behind rivals Arsenal and within touching distance of the Champions League spots.
However, the Bees – who promise to provide a tricky test – can go level on points with Spurs if they win.

Nearly at kick-off!
They would have had the chance to put that behind them against Brentford at the weekend, but Turf Moor was colder than Santa Claus’ freezer and so that game got snowed off.
This is the first game since. Conte will want a reaction, and then some.
…Spurs lost 2-1 against Slovenian minnows NS Mura in the Europa Conference League.
I don’t want to stick the boot in, but it was an embarrassing result. Most Spurs fans, I’m sure, would agree.
Thomas Frank, understandably, goes with an unchanged team from the side that beat Everton 1-0.
More of the same please lads, he’ll probably be telling them in the dressing room.
Two changes for Antonio Conte’s men from their last league game, with Davinson Sanchez in for Japhet Tanganga at centre-back and Oliver Skipp in for Harry Winks in midfield.
Perhaps surprising given Sanchez and Skipp played in that horror show against Mura, with Sanchez particularly poor in that game. But Cristian Romero is out injured, so he stays…
Can the Spurs pair bounce back tonight?
