Tottenham Hotspur and Brentford return to action in the Premier League when they lock horns at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a thrilling London Derby on Wednesday.
Having failed to win the last four meetings between the two sides, Ange Postecoglou’s men will head into the midweek clash looking to get one over the Bees and resume their quest for a top-four finish.
Tottenham were sent crashing out of the FA Cup last Friday when they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Manchester City courtesy of an 88th-minute strike from Nathan Ake.
Prior to that, Postecoglou’s side were on a three-game unbeaten run, picking up successive victories over Bournemouth and Burnley, before playing out a 2-2 draw with Manchester United on January 14.
With 40 points from 21 matches, Tottenham are currently fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.
Elsewhere, Brentford returned to winning ways last time out when they edged out Nottingham Forest 3-2 in a thrilling contest at the Brentford Community Stadium.
This was a much-needed respite for Thomas Frank’s men, who were previously on a seven-game winless run, losing six and picking up one draw since early December.
With 40 points from 21 matches, Tottenham are currently fifth in the league table but could move into second place with all three points on Wednesday.
