When, where, and how to watch Brentford vs Tottenham Hotspur

The Premier League returns this weekend and Tottenham Hotspur begin the 2023/24 campaign with a tricky away fixture against Brentford.

Tottenham will be looking to put the disappointment of last season’s eighth-placed finish behind them with a strong start this term. With a new manager, and plenty of new players, this is a real opportunity for Spurs to turn over a new leaf.

Ange Postecoglous tenure as Tottenham boss has so far been overshadowed by speculation over Harry Kanes future at the club, but the Australian will be keen to let the football do the talking this weekend.

Brentford, meanwhile, go into the new campaign looking to build on another impressive showing last year. The Bees finished just one place and one point behind the Lilywhites in the 2022/23 campaign.

Brentford vs Tottenham team news

The main talking point for Spurs will be around Harry Kane, with the talismanic striker looking likely to start the game as captain in light of his proposed move to Bayern Munich failing to progress.

Tottenham fans will more than likely see James Maddison and goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario make their competitive debut.

New signing Micky van de Ven, however, will probably have to wait for his Spurs debut. Having only joined the club earlier this week, it’s unlikely the Dutchman will have had sufficient time training with the squad to be match ready.

For the home side, the absence of Ivan Toney will surely be felt, as the 27-year-old continues his ban from football due to breaking gambling rules. Brentford will be relying on the likes of Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbuemo for goals instead.

The Bees could well be without David Raya too, who looks set to join Arsenal (Guardian). Mark Flekken, a new signing for Brentford this summer, will step in as the new number-one goalkeeper.

The Spurs Web prediction

An away game at Brentford is not an easy way to start the season, but with them missing key players like Toney and Raya, Spurs could well take advantage. Ange Postecoglou will be keen to begin his reign in style, and I fancy Tottenham to have the edge in a tight 2-1 win.
