GOAL FLASH!

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Brentford

(70′ mins): Son was a whisker away – meeting Sissoko’s cross with a crisp volley which whistled the wrong side of an upright. But having hung in the game, Brentford visibly grew. Toney’s close-range header was ruled out following a lengthy VAR-check – the tightest of margins sparing the Lilywhites blushes.

But having received the wake-up call, Spurs set about finishing the job. Kane and Tanguy Ndombele combined to send Son away – the emphatic finish never really in doubt as the South Korean bore down on goal.
