Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Brentford
Spurs a goal to the good at the break. Ben Davies reacted to Heung-Min Son’s centre, causing confusion and forcing Sergi Canós into heading through his own goal – Pontus Jansson also involved in the melee. Spurs in front inside twelve minutes.
Brentford’s best moments came through Bryan Mbeumo. But a speculative volley drifting wide and several unsupported darts forward were all the Frenchman had to show for his efforts during the opening period.
