Tottenham return to action after Sunday's game at Burnley was snowed off. The sixth placed side host Brentford who are 12th but will go above Tottenham if winning this game. Tottenham are six points off fourth place but with a game in hand. This week sees them at home to Brentford and Norwich, they really should be aiming for six points. They have won four of their six home league games this season, the other two being losses against Chelsea and Manchester United under their former management.
Brentford beat Everton 1-0 at home on Sunday. That was their fourth league win of the season and they are seven points behind the top four and the same number of points above the bottom three. How the next few games go will determine what kind of 2022 they are going to have. The win over Everton ended a run of five league games without a win and was their first victory since October. Ten goals had been conceded in the four league games before beating Everton. If Conte can get Kane and Son playing well again, Tottenham can be backed to win this match.
