Over 2.5 goals

Both of the two meetings at this stadium have ended in draws, but that does not necessarily mean that Sunday’s clash will be a low-scoring one.

The Bees took a two-goal lead before being pegged back by Spurs on Boxing Day and then the west Londonders gained their revenge by winning 3-1 at Tottenham in May.

Tottenham had their defensive issues last season and could present the home team with plenty of opportunities, while the visitors need to pick themselves up and show they are not blunt in attack following Harry Kane’s move to Bayern Munich.

Two debutant goalkeepers in Brentford’s Mark Flekken and Tottenham’s Guglielmo Vicario could be in for a baptism of fire and we can expect plenty of goalmouth action, so bank on there being at least three goals.

Bryan Mbeumo to score at any time

Brentford will be without their main goal threat Ivan Toney for most of the season which means it will be time for other players in Thomas Frank’s squad to step up to the plate.

The most likely to do so is Cameroon forward Bryan Mbeumo, who scored twice when Brentford won 3-1 at Spurs in May on another occasion when Toney was unavailable.

There were signs towards the end of the campaign that Mbeumo could flourish with the extra responsibility and he was on target nine times last term.

Perhaps most notably, he had six efforts on goal in both that game at Tottenham and a win over West Ham in the final couple of weeks of the season, so he can pick up from there and find the net in Sunday’s clash.

James Maddison to be booked

Tottenham fans getting over the loss of Kane may take some small comfort from the signing of James Maddison to give Ange Postecoglou’s team the midfield creativity that was missing last season.

However, while Maddison can be a threat with free-kicks around the box, he is also prone to picking up a yellow card, which he did in 10 of his 30 appearances for Leicester in their relegation season.

Admittedly, he should see more of the ball playing for Spurs which means he is likely to make fewer tackles, but the extra incentive to impress on his debut could mean he is a little reckless and there is a good chance he will be carded on his first appearance for his new club.
