Tottenham vs Brentford results: Premier League scores, goals and reports

A night of relaxation, and especially a fascinating moment of shine, is the result of a week’s work. Hope for Antonio Conte is now it begins to reshape Tottenham Hotspurof the season. It could point to a bit of trouble for Brentford’s.

It’s a warning, of course. That’s just Brentford, but there’s really much more to it than that. Conte is said to have enjoyed the way he ended up working with this squad for more than a couple of days, and the effects could be seen in the 2-0 win over Brentford guaranteed by a stunning display. Shows Son Heung-Min scored.

The fact that it was South Korea’s first goal since mid-October is just one of many encouraging little milestones for Conte, which he will hope to represent a turning point in the season. Equally impressive ball that Harry Kane played for him, and the run that Sergio Reguilon made.

Obviously it would be ridiculous and premature to say this happened when it was triggered, especially given the opposition’s modesty, but it’s a clear indication of what Conte wants. Spurs can’t do what he wants in a full game, but they can do some of it.

It is just as beautiful a play, as divinely clean as it is destructive. In it, it is reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal against Arsenal in 2009, if admittedly not so good. However, it doesn’t have to be. That was more than enough for Spurs, and for Conte, and quite brilliant.

Son let the ball touch Harry Kane’s hand in the middle of the field before rushing forward. As the first half of Brentford opened, Sergio Reguilon teamed up with Son to run fast on the wing, giving Kane an angle to make an excited dribble. It’s the kind of thing that only excites a crowd because it’s packed with possibilities. Without stopping, the Reguilon turned on the power, before giving it to Son.

He finally got that goal, his first since the away trip to Newcastle United, and it was Kane’s last game of the tournament.

Son was looking much sharper than before, as his work for the goal indicated. He enlivened a relatively sedated first half with a quick run and a long shot, and was generally shaping the game with his movements.

It was his run to the left that kept the game going, as he pulled in a cross from which Sergi Canos unfortunately missed in that opening attack. There are very few wingers who can score an own goal in this situation, and how has Son’s passing quality caused such chaos.

Kane didn’t get his own goal, and the one-on-one second half reminded him he wasn’t 100% yet, but he did look a little closer.

The ball through Son’s goal was heralded by lots of nice passes and good building play. He looks much more productive in that playmaker role. We all know Kane is more than that. He just needs that goal now, that motivation.

Perhaps the relationship between Ben Davies and Reguilon on the left wing is the most encouraging for Conte. The Wales international is firmly established at left centre-back, winning plenty and often for him to ignore. There was even an important header from a foul in the box as the score remained 1-0 and the game was level.

However, there is a clear feeling that Reguilon will become one of Conte’s cornerstones. He just has the care and push that the Italians love from his full-backs, and gives his teams an extra dimension.

There is no further dimension to Brentford, however. They’ve been admirably self-referential, but it was one of those games where their limitations came to the fore, just as Spurs started pushing them.

In that respect, it can be a relatively predictable night, but it can also point to much of what’s to come – for both sides.
