- Antonio Conte may have secretly been happy that his side’s most recent fixture against Burnley was postponed due to adverse weather conditions, giving him another vital few days to work with the Tottenham squad on the training ground to implement his ideas and style of play ahead of this local derby.
- Centre-back Cristian Romero remains out through injury and it is unlikely that fellow Argentinian international Giovani Lo Celso will be ready to feature in this match either.
- Despite having been plagued by injuries, Brentford showed tremendous character to overcome Everton by a goal to nil, a precious three points that ended a run of five Premier Leagues without a win.
- The knocks keep on coming for head coach Thomas Frank, who now faces the prospect of potentially being without Sergi Canos, Christian Norgaard and Rico Henry against Tottenham, all of whom would normally be guaranteed starters for the Bees.

Whilst Brentford showed exceptional fight against Everton and proved a lot of people wrong who thought they would struggle when taking into account their current injury list, an away match against Tottenham represents an even tougher challenge. Spurs are well rested following a week without playing and with a near-fully fit squad to choose from, hold a huge advantage over their opponents who are suffering from the injury rigours that so often plague a newly promoted side in the Premier League. Ultimately this is expected to be too much for Brentford to overcome and whilst they have been far from convincing so far under Antonio Conte, anything less than three points here for Tottenham would be considered a big surprise.
Tip: TOTTENHAM TO WIN
