Ryan Mason has made four changes for Tottenham’s visit of Brentford with Cristian Romero and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg out through injury. Davinson Sanchez and Yves Bissouma - making his first start since January due to injury - replace the aforementioned duo with Dejan Kulusevski and Arnaut Danjuma recalled while Pedro Porro and Richarlison drop to the bench.

Brentford boss Thomas Frank brings Frank Onyeka into his starting line-up in place of Mikkel Damsgaard. Ivan Toney, who missed last weekend’s win over West Ham with a hamstring injury, begins his eight-month ban for betting breaches.

Spurs face a final-day trip up north as they face Leeds United while Brentford host Manchester City next weekend.

A Bryan Mbuemo brace inspires a fantastic second-half turnaround from Brentford as they secure a 3-1 away win against Tottenham. Spurs had taken the lead early in the first half when Harry Kane rifled home from distance with a free-kick. Spurs wasted chances through Danjuma and Kulusevski to increase their lead before the break and were punished for it in the second half. Mbuemo's brace coupled with Yoane Wissa's late finish secured a remarkable victory for Brentford who now move just one point behind Spurs and European football. Ryan Mason's side were booed off at full-time after another disappointing performance and they remain seventh but could yet be leapfrogged by Aston Villa who play later today.

Mee makes another smart block to divert Porro's striker behind for a corner. Brentford deal with the corner and inch closer to a huge victory.

Spurs can count themselves unlucky there that they didn't get one back but it begs the question as to why it has taken them this long into the second half to create any such openings.

14:26

DOUBLE SAVE!! That is simply superb from Raya to preserve his side's two-goal lead. Richarlison gets a huge leap at the back post and thunders a header on goal but Raya reacts superbly to palm the ball onto the post before tipping over another Richarlison effort for a corner moments later.

Richarlison goes down in the box after a challenge with Henry but no penalty is given. Kane gets onto the loose ball but is off balance as he shoots and it flies wide of the target.

Brentford with a defensive change as Schade comes off for centre-back Zanka.

There's a shellshocked atmosphere inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. After such a promising first half, Spurs have wilted so far since the break and now have it all to do with about 30 minutes left.

A solid start from Brentford this half and this time Henry clips a ball into the box. Mbuemo rises with Davies but his header goes well wide and Spurs have a goal kick.

Kulusevski slides through Kane down the right but it's a loose effort by Kane's standards and it flies harmlessly over the bar.

13:49

Jensen launches a long throw into a congested box which Spurs do well to defend. The loose ball lands at the feet of Mbuemo who catches it sweetly on the volley but it's straight down the throat of Forster who claims it well.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

13:46

Kulusevski gets into a promising area but doesn't pull the rigger and instead looks for Emerson. It's a poor pass and Brentford can clear for a corner which comes to nothing as Kane is found in an offside position.

It doesn't feel like hyperbole to suggest that today's first half was one of Spurs' best all season. The back four has worked fantastically and the forward line of Son, Danjuma and Kulusevski behind Kane have run Brentford ragged so far. They've had nine shots (5 on target) and should have more than one goal. Brentford looked to have struggled without the focal point of Toney in attack but with only a one-goal deficit and Spurs' track record this year, they are certainly not out of this game. An intriguing second half awaits.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

13:25

Harry Kane's delightful early strike has given Spurs a 1-0 lead against Brentford as we reach half-time. The Englishman needed just eight minutes to get his goal this game and what a goal it was. Kulusevksi laid the ball into his path from a free-kick and his right-footed effort from the edge of the box flew into the top corner. Royal saw an effort cleared off the line with Son, Danjuma and Kulusevski having chances late on in the half as Spurs impressed in front of their home crowd.

SAVE!! Spurs continue to press forward and Kulusevski managed to find some space between two Brentford defenders to receive the ball. The Sweede fires on goal from the left-side of the box but Raya is able to tip his effort over the bar.

Another great break from Spurs, initially from Kulusevski, and the ball finds Son inside the box. He jinks onto his right foot but it's a great diving block from Mee to prevent his effort from reaching the goal.

It's a clumsy challenge from Bissouma on Wissa and he is shown the first yellow card of the game.

13:16

WIDE!! So close to a Spurs second. Son drifts over to the right and dinks in a cross towards the penalty spot. Danjuma is unmarked and flicks his header well towards the far post. Raya is well-beaten but it goes just wide of the post.

Emerson tries to whip in a cross from the right but Henry is well-positioned and blocks the ball out for a corner.

There is a pause in play as Raya is down receiving treatment. The Spaniard is up on his feet again and looks okay to continue.

13:07

Jensen receives the ball on the edge of the box but his first-time effort sails wide of the goal.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

13:06

Spurs were torn apart by Newcastle when they last trialled the back four but it's far to say it's worked far more effectively this time and they've looked by far the better side so far this game.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

13:03

Kulusevski looks to slide through Danjuma through the middle but there is too much pace on the pass and Raya can clear. The forward three behind Kane are enjoying themselves so far with Brentford struggling to pick them all up.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

13:03

Mbuemo rises to get a head on Henry's cross but he's unable to get under it and it flies high and wide of the Spurs goal.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

13:00

Danjuma now makes a good burst forward as Spurs counter. He cuts inside onto his left but can't find a shot on goal and Brentford clear as the loanee looks to find Kane on the edge of the box.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

12:57

Sanchez gets up well but heads wide of the left post from the resulting corner. A good start this, from Spurs.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

12:57

OFF THE LINE!! Great work from Son down the late after some good interchange with Kulusevski. Son hangs a ball up to the back post and it's met by the onrushing Emerson but his header is cleared off the line by Henry with Raya stranded.

From the long throw, Mee wins the knockdown but Forster is able to gather with Wissa lurking.

12:51

Brentford win a free-kick on the right-hand side and the away side send forward their centre-backs. Jensen delivers an enticing cross but there is too much pace on the cross and Pinnock is unable to get his head on it at the far post.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

12:49

Davies digs out a cross to the back post looking for Kane. He gets tangled up with Mee with both players grabbing each others shirts and the ball eventually springs loose and is cleared away.

Schade threatens down the left as Brentford look to find a way back into this game. The German eases past Emerson and dribbles along the byline but the Spurs defence are able to clear away his cross for a corner.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford

12:44

SAVE!! A really positive start from Spurs as Kane feeds through Son down the left. Hickey does well to recover and put the forward under pressure as he strikes with Raya able to make a smart stop.
