Next Up: Tottenham Hotspur

Bees end run of local fixtures at home next weekend

18 April 2022

Brentford started April with four local derbies in a row on the agenda. Having won the first three, the last awaits next Saturday, 23 April. Tottenham Hotspur will come to West London for a match that will kick-off at 5.30pm and be broadcast live by Sky Sports.

The latest of three straight wins came on Saturday when Pontus Jansson headed in a last minute winner to give Brentford a 2-1 victory against Watford. That followed a 2-0 win over West Ham United and a 4-1 victory against Chelsea. The Bees have won five of their last six matches to climb the Premier League table.

Brentford now sit 11th in the standings with 39 points from 33 matches. They are only a point behind the two teams ahead of them - Leicester City and Brighton and Hove Albion - and are in a group of seven teams separated by just four points. There are fixtures in the coming days involving those teams so the table could have a different look by the time The Bees are next in action.

Tottenham are fighting it out at the very top of the table. They had won four Premier League games in a row, and six out of seven, before defeat to Brighton on Saturday. The North London side are fourth in the table, three points ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal and five behind Chelsea. Arsenal have a game in hand on them and Chelsea have two.

Brentford were beaten 2-0 in the reverse fixture in North London, conceding a goal in each half. It was their second visit to Tottenham in 2021. The Bees were beaten in a Carabao Cup Semi-Final last January, their first-ever match at that stage of a major cup competition. The games had similar patterns with Tottenham scoring early and finishing off the game on the counter-attack.

The match in December was the first top flight meeting between the teams. The sides had played six league matches, all in the second tier, prior to that and Brentford have won just one. The previous seven games between the teams were in the EFL Cup. Tottenham progressed in three two-legged Second Round ties between 1992 and 2000, winning five of six games.
