Match P Brentford vs Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday, April 23, 2022
Brentford Vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview
After their win over Leicester City in midweek‚ Brentford should be able to fend off Tottenham at the weekend. After all‚ the Bees sit comfortably on 39 points‚ and their last match was a 4-1 win over Chelsea. Tottenham are facing a new challenge in Brentford‚ as former player Christian Eriksen will be on the field. The Danish midfielder is enjoying a fine spell following his return to club football.
Brentford's lack of energy and cohesion vs Tottenham Hotspur
During the weekend‚ Tottenham threw away a 2-0 lead against Brentford to draw with Brighton. Despite having a few key players in their ranks‚ Spurs were unable to get into a rhythm and dominate possession. The visitors also failed to create a clear cut chance on goal. This lack of energy and cohesion is evident in the lack of shots on target‚ compared to Brentford's five. Tottenham's front three were absent from the match‚ with Dejan Kulusevski and Heung-Min Son struggling to make an impact. Harry Kane was unable to convert his rare opportunity. Tottenham must find a way to win this game to avoid repeating the same mistake. The hosts need to find a way to win and keep the pressure on. To get a victory‚ Tottenham must regain a winning mentality and energy level. They must not fall victim to their opponents' drab tactics. Tottenham have been stifling for several months‚ and this defeat may be the reason. However‚ they are in the hunt for Champions League football next season. The team's current slump may be a result of the recent poor performances of the players.
Christian Eriksen's chance to score a PL goal vs Tottenham Hotspur
Last season‚ Christian Eriksen was third in Europe for chances created and assists with nine. His contribution to goals has also risen this season. He assisted Harry Kane six times‚ Heung-Min Son four times and Dele Alli three times. In the PL‚ his involvement in goals has increased for three consecutive seasons. Unlike in previous seasons‚ he has a goal scoring chance in every match. While the Danish international struggled to fulfill his lofty expectations since signing for Tottenham‚ he stepped up his performance last Saturday. Against Manchester United‚ Eriksen scored the game-winning goal and set up the second in the 2-1 win. He did so by streamlining the Tottenham attack. His impact was felt on a brilliant cross he delivered to Emmanuel Adebayor in the middle. The Nigerian forward then headed the goal to secure the victory at Old Trafford. While a big chance can be useful‚ a big opportunity is only useful if it results in a goal. Chances to score are the true measure of an individual's creative output and understanding with his teammates. Eriksen leads the PL assists list with 62‚ which speaks to his good set-piece abilities. As of right now‚ he remains the best player in the Premier League. The match was a close contest as both sides were looking for a late winner. The first half was evenly contested‚ with no goalscoring. Eriksen had an opportunity to score a goal in the first half of the second half‚ and his effort from distance bounced off the crossbar. The match was a close one and Eriksen may have just missed his chance of scoring a goal in the PL this season. Christian Eriksen's contract with Brentford expires at the end of the season‚ but the Dane has been impressive this season with the Bees. In five starts‚ Christian Eriksen has contributed a goal and two assists. Brentford haven't lost when Christian Eriksen starts. There are plenty of other reasons why Tottenham should give Eriksen a chance to continue his fine form against his former club. Christian Eriksen missed the chance to score a PL goal against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. It would have given Eriksen the chance to get his first Premier League goal and make his PL debut‚ but he couldn't make the most of it. In the end‚ he missed it because of a mistake on the other team's goalkeeper.
Spurs' recent PL wins by multiple-goal margins vs Brentford
After winning all of their previous three Premier League games by a margin of more than three goals‚ Tottenham are now a perfect record of PL wins by a margin of more than four goals. The only other team in the league to have won by a margin of more than three goals in a single game is Man United‚ but those teams are rarely in the same division as Spurs. While Tottenham have a good record at the top of the Premier League‚ Brentford have been a surprise package this season and have shown no signs of being overawed by the competition. They have already beaten the likes of Arsenal‚ West Ham United‚ and Chelsea. They most recently beat Everton at home. The first-ever meeting between the sides in the Premier League is likely to be a goalless draw‚ with Tottenham looking to get back on track. Tottenham have won their last three Premier League games by a multiple-goal margin‚ but they'll need other players to step up in the absence of Matt Doherty and Kyle Naughton. Reguilon has shown some wingback potential in his debut‚ and Rodrigo Bentancur should bounce back after a poor performance last week. Brentford are also in the fight for Champions League qualification and could find themselves outside the top-four by the time of this game. The latest two games between Tottenham and Brentford have seen them win by a multiple-goal margin in both matches. This time‚ Tottenham will be looking to make it three in a row. Brentford had beaten Everton in their last game and had to come from behind to get anything. They had just six shots during the game. This could be a sign of things to come for both sides. Tottenham's unbeaten run in the Premier League continues with their victory against Brentford. With a 2-0 margin‚ Tottenham now sit within two points of the top four. The result means the club have missed a crucial opportunity to play Burnley. However‚ Spurs are still on a good run and are grateful for Brentford's willingness to play. One more win against Brentford will lift Spurs to sixth place in the league. The first PL game between Tottenham and Brentford came in 2021. Brentford had won two games by a margin of 2-0. Their best result was a 2-0 win against Wolves in the away game‚ but only one against Arsenal. And they were 0-3 last season. Nevertheless‚ they have a good record of three-goal margins at home.
