Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Brentford
(11′ mins): Mourinho made four changes to the side which had seen off Leeds United by three unanswered goals at the turn of the year. Notably, Sergio Reguilon returned as Spurs lined up against an impressive Bees side under the guidance of Thomas Frank and unbeaten since October.
Nevertheless, heeding their managers’ words on the importance of the tie it was Spurs who made the early breakthrough. Moussa Sissoko firmly heading Reguilon’s pinpoint centre high beyond Bees stopper, David Raya.
