Next Up: Tottenham Hotspur

Derby match on the agenda on Thursday evening

30 November 2021

After taking four points from their last two matches, Brentford have their first midweek game of the Premier League season next up. The Bees will face Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday, 2 December, in a match that will kick-off at 7.30pm. It will be broadcast live on Amazon Prime Video.

Brentford beat Everton on Sunday thanks to an Ivan Toney penalty. That victory ended a run of five Premier League games without a win but came on the back of a 3-3 draw away to Newcastle United last weekend. After a run of 12 weekend league games, with breaks for international fixtures interspersed, Brentford will play a midweek Premier League match for the first time.

The win on Sunday saw The Bees climb to 12th in table. The Bees are below Crystal Palace on goals scored and above Aston Villa on goal difference. They are in the middle of a bunch of 12 teams, from sixth to 17th, separated by 8 points.

When The Bees were beating Everton, Tottenham has a fruitless journey north. They were due to face Burnley on Sunday but the match was called off due to heavy snow falling in the hours before kick-off. Spurs are seventh in the table with 19 points from their 12 games and will fall below Brentford if The Bees can win in North London.

Spurs beat Leeds United last weekend, coming from behind to take a 2-1 victory, and drew with Everton at the start of November. Prior to that they lost five of seven matches, having started the campaign with three straight 1-0 wins. They have won four of six matches at home, losing to Chelsea and Manchester United.

Tottenham have reached the last eight of the Carabao Cup and will face West Ham United next month. They are in the UEFA Conference League and have won two of their five games. They need to beat Stade Rennais next week to reach the knockout stages.

This will be Brentford's second visit to Tottenham in 2021. The Bees were beaten in a Carabao Cup Semi-Final in January, their first-ever match at that stage of a major cup competition. The last seven games between the teams have been in that competition. Tottenham progressed in three two-legged Second Round ties between 1992 and 2000, winning five of six games. The teams last met in league competition in 1949. The sides have played six league matches, all in the second tier, and Brentford have won just one.

Tickets for this fixture are sold out. Tickets for Sunday's away game against Leeds United are still available at the Box Office only until Thursday 2 December (subject to availability). More information on Leeds tickets can be seen here.

The match will be live on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Brentford fans can also listen live on Bees Player. Full information on the service can be seen here. Bees fans living overseas should check this page to see if they can watch the game live.
