That is all for today – thanks for tuning in!
Spurs face a final-day trip up north as they face Leeds United while Brentford host Manchester City next weekend.
A Bryan Mbuemo brace inspires a fantastic second-half turnaround from Brentford as they secure a 3-1 away win against Tottenham. Spurs had taken the lead early in the first half when Harry Kane rifled home from distance from a short free-kick. Spurs wasted chances through Danjuma and Kulusevski to increase their lead before the break and were punished for it in the second half. Mbuemo's brace coupled with Yoane Wissa's late finish secured a remarkable victory for Brentford who now move just one point behind Spurs and European football. Ryan Mason's side were booed off at full-time after another disappointing performance and they remain seventh but could yet be leapfrogged by Aston Villa who play later today.
90' + 7' Perisic whips a ball into the box which Henry clears as far as Porro but it's a wild effort from the full-back which flies wide.
90' + 5' Mee makes another smart block to divert Porro's strike behind for a corner. Brentford deal with the corner and inch closer to a huge victory.
90' + 4' Spurs can count themselves unlucky there that they didn't get one back but it begs the question as to why it has taken them this long in the second half to create any openings.
90' + 1' DOUBLE SAVE!! That is simply superb from Raya to preserve his side's two-goal lead. Richarlison gets a huge leap at the back post and thunders a header on goal but Raya reacts brilliantly to palm the ball onto the post before tipping over another Richarlison effort for a corner moments later.
90' There will be nine minutes of added time to conclude this second half.
J. Dasilva
Y. Wissa
89' Goalscorer Wissa comes off for Dasilva.
M. Rasmussen
A. Hickey
89' A double change for Brentford as Hickey comes off for Roerslev.
B. Mbeumo
88' Mbeumo with two goals and an assist now as he slots through Wissa for Brentford's third.
Y. Wissa
88' GOOOOAAAALL!!! BRENTFORD SURELY WIN IT!! 3-1! What a second half from Brentford and they've surely won it now as Wissa gets in on the act. Skipp tries too much on the edge of his own box and he loses the ball cheaply under pressure from Baptiste. Mbuemo receives the ball and shifts it on to Wissa who makes no mistake and fires past Forster before heading off to celebrate in front of the jubilant Brentford fans.
86' Mee rises well to clear away the corner but stays down and there is a pause in play as he receives treatment.
I. Perišić
B. Davies
85' Before that corner, Davies comes off with Perisic introduced late on.
85' Porro's cross is blocked behind by Henry for a Spurs corner.
82' Davies whips in a cross from the left which Moura reaches. Richarlison gets to the second ball but his flick is claimed easily by Raya in the Brentford goal.
80' Richarlison goes down in the box after a challenge with Henry but no penalty is given. Kane gets onto the loose ball but is off balance as he shoots and it flies wide of the target.
M. Jørgensen
K. Schade
78' Brentford with a defensive change as Schade comes off for centre-back Zanka.
D. Kulusevski
75' Richarlison also comes on with Kulusevski making way.
Pedro Porro
75' A double change for Spurs as Emerson comes off for Porro.
74' Brentford have dropped back after that second goal but look more than comfortable with Spurs unable so far to find the same attacking quality that they enjoyed for much of the first half.
S. Baptiste
M. Jensen
72' Brentford with another change as Jensen makes way for Baptiste in central midfield.
70' Spurs are yet to have a shot on target in this second half, having had five shots on target in the first half.
R. Henry
Yellow Card
68' Henry pulls back Kulusevki's shirt as he looks to break and receives Brentford's first yellow card of the game.
Lucas Moura
A. Danjuma
66' Spurs turn to the bench after that second goal as Danjuma makes way for Moura who comes on for his last Spurs home game with the Brazilian set to leave at the end of the season.
65' There's a shellshocked atmosphere inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. After such a promising first half, Spurs have wilted so far since the break and now have it all to do with about 30 minutes left.
A. Hickey
62' Hickey won the ball back contentiously after a challenge on Kane but his ball into Mbuemo was perfect and the Brentford forward took full advantage to finish past Forster.
B. Mbeumo
62' GOOOOAAAALL!!! BRENTFORD LEAD!! 2-1! What a turnaround and Brentford have the lead. Kane is dispossessed and Hickey slides through a great ball down the right channel. Davies is beaten yet again and Mbuemo races into the box, opens up his body and curls a left-footed effort into the far corner. A brace for the Cameroon international and what a second-half performance from Brentford.
61' Forster's clearance lands straight at the feet of Jensen who tries to catch the Spurs keeper off his line with a first-time volley but it goes well over.
60' There is a pause in play as Danjuma receives treatment but the forward is up again and okay to continue.
59' A solid start from Brentford this half and this time Henry clips a ball into the box. Mbuemo rises with Davies but his header goes well wide and Spurs have a goal kick.
57' Kulusevski slides through Kane down the right but it's a loose effort by Kane's standards and it flies harmlessly over the bar.
56' Jensen launches a long throw into a congested box which Spurs do well to defend. The loose ball lands at the feet of Mbuemo who catches it sweetly on the volley but it's straight down the throat of Forster who claims it well.
53' Kulusevski gets into a promising area but doesn't pull the trigger and instead looks for Emerson. It's a poor pass and Brentford can clear for a corner, which comes to nothing as Kane is found in an offside position.
Y. Wissa
50' Wissa is leading the line in Toney's absence and he's involved in the goal here, moving the ball quickly on to Mbuemo and allowing his forward partner to finish.
B. Mbeumo
50' GOOOOAAAALL!! BRENTFORD EQUALISE!! 1-1! Spurs will definitely rue their missed first-half chances now as Mbeumo fires home an equaliser. It's far too easy for the away side and Davies lets Mbuemo shift the ball onto his favoured left foot with so much ease on the edge of the box. He lets fly and it sails into the far corner. The perfect start for Brentford in this second half.
49' Janelt looks for a ball over the top to play through Schade but there's too much on it and the ball trickles out for a throw-in on the left side.
46' With that change complete, Spurs get us underway in this second half!
M. Damsgaard
F. Onyeka
46' One change for Brentford at the break as Onyeka makes way for Damsgaard.
It doesn't feel like hyperbole to suggest that first half was one of Spurs' best all season. The back four has worked fantastically and the supporting trio of Son, Danjuma and Kulusevski behind Kane have run Brentford ragged so far. They've had nine shots (five on target) and should have more than one goal. Brentford have struggled without the focal point of Toney in attack but with only a one-goal deficit and Spurs' track record this year, they are certainly not out of this game. An intriguing second half awaits.
Harry Kane's delightful early strike has given Spurs a 1-0 lead against Brentford as we reach half-time. The Englishman needed just eight minutes to get his goal, and what a goal it was. Kulusevksi laid the ball into his path from a free-kick and his right-footed effort from the edge of the box flew into the top corner. Emerson saw an effort cleared off the line with Son, Danjuma and Kulusevski having chances late on in the half as Spurs impressed in front of their home crowd.
45' + 4' SAVE!! Spurs continue to press forward and Kulusevski manages to find some space between two Brentford defenders to receive the ball. The Swede fires on goal from the left side of the box but Raya is able to tip his effort over the bar.
45' + 1' Another great break from Spurs, initially from Kulusevski, and the ball finds Son inside the box. He jinks onto his right foot but it's a great diving block from Mee to prevent his effort from reaching the goal.
Y. Bissouma
Yellow Card
45' It's a clumsy challenge from Bissouma on Wissa and he is shown the first yellow card of the game.
43' WIDE!! So close to a Spurs second. Son drifts over to the right and dinks in a cross towards the penalty spot. Danjuma is unmarked and flicks his header well towards the far post. Raya is well-beaten but it goes just wide of the post.
42' Wissa looks for Mbuemo on the edge of the box but Davies does well to use his body and dispossess the Brentford forward.
40' Kulusevski's cross aims for the back post but Raya does well to claim the high cross.
39' Emerson tries to whip in a cross from the right but Henry is well-positioned and blocks the ball out for a corner.
37' There is a pause in play as Raya is down receiving treatment. The Spaniard is up on his feet again and looks okay to continue.
35' Jensen receives the ball on the edge of the box but his first-time effort sails wide of the goal.
33' Spurs were torn apart by Newcastle when they last trialled the back four but it's far to say it's worked far more effectively this time and they've looked by far the better side so far this game.
31' Kulusevski looks to slide Danjuma through the middle but there is too much pace on the pass and Raya can clear. The forward three behind Kane are enjoying themselves so far with Brentford struggling to pick them all up.
29' Mbuemo rises to get a head on Henry's cross but he's unable to get under it and it flies high and wide of the Spurs goal.
27' Danjuma now makes a good burst forward as Spurs counter. He cuts inside onto his left but can't find a shot on goal and Brentford clear as the loanee looks to find Kane on the edge of the box.
24' Sanchez gets up well but heads wide of the left post from the resulting corner. A good start this, from Spurs.
23' OFF THE LINE!! Great work from Son down the left after some good interchange with Kulusevski. Son hangs a ball up to the back post and it's met by the onrushing Emerson, but his header is cleared off the line by Henry with Raya stranded.
20' Skipp thinks he has dispossessed Onyeka in a promising position but the referee blows up for a foul. Skipp and the home crowd are not happy with that one.
18' From the long throw, Mee wins the knockdown but Forster is able to gather with Wissa lurking.
17' Brentford win a free-kick on the right-hand side and the away side send forward their centre-backs. Jensen delivers an enticing cross but there is too much pace on the cross and Pinnock is unable to get his head on it at the far post.
15' Davies digs out a cross to the back post looking for Kane. He gets tangled up with Mee with both players grabbing each others shirts and the ball eventually springs loose and is cleared away.
13' Schade threatens down the left as Brentford look to find a way back into this game. The German eases past Emerson and dribbles along the byline but the Spurs defence are able to clear away his cross for a corner.
11' SAVE!! A really positive start from Spurs as Kane feeds through Son down the left. Hickey does well to recover and put the forward under pressure as he strikes with Raya able to make a smart stop.
D. Kulusevski
8' A neat backheel from Kulusevski set up the Kane strike from that free-kick. Straight off the training ground, one suspects.
H. Kane
8' GOOOOAAAAL!!! WHAT A HIT!! 1-0! Spurs are ahead and it's a sumptuous strike from the talismanic Kane. Kulusevski steps up and rolls the free-kick into the path of Kane and his right-footed effort flies past the wall and into the top-right corner. Raya with no chance and Spurs lead early on.
6' Skipp gets to the ball before Onyeka and the Brentford midfielder hauls down his opposite number. Spurs now with a free-kick centrally just outside the box.
5' Up the other end, Hickey does well to smother Kane's shot and Raya can make a comfortable save.
4' Henry's cross from the left lands at the feet of Mbuemo inside the Spurs box but his left-footed effort sails over the bar.
2' Kulusevski gets down the right in the opening stages but his fizzed cross into the box lands straight into the arms of Raya in the Brentford goal.
1' Brentford get this first half underway!
Tottenham have lost just one of their nine league matches with Brentford (W4 D4), going down 2-0 away from home in March 1948 in the second tier.
Frank makes just one change to his Brentford side after their 2-0 win against West Ham as Onyeka comes in for Damsgaard.
Mason makes four changes to his Tottenham side that lost 2-1 against Aston Villa. Spurs move to a back four with Cristian Romero and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg dropping out of the squad entirely. Sanchez and Bissouma replace the pair while Richarlison and Porro also make way for Kulusevski and Danjuma.
BRENTFORD SUBS: Mikkel Damsgaard, Ryan Trevitt, Josh Dasilva, Thomas Strakosha, Kristoffer Ajer, Mads Roerslev, Zanka, Shandon Baptiste, Saman Ghoddos.
BRENTFORD (4-3-3): David Raya; Aaron Hickey, Ethan Pinnock, Ben Mee, Rico Henry; Frank Onyeka, Vitaly Janelt, Mathias Jensen; Bryan Mbeumo, Yoane Wissa, Kevin Schade.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Japhet Tanganga, Richarlison, Brandon Austin, Pedro Porro, Ivan Perisic, Matthew Craig, Pape Sarr, Eric Dier, Lucas Moura.
TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Fraser Forster; Emerson Royal, Davinson Sanchez, Clement Lenglet, Ben Davies; Oliver Skipp, Yves Bissouma; Dejan Kulusevski, Arnaut Danjuma, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane.
Brentford sit just two places and four points below Spurs heading into this fixture with European football still up for grabs. The Bees' remarkable season has shown no signs of slowing down with three wins in their last four games. Thomas Frank's side will have to battle on without the help of Ivan Toney, however, who begins his first game out with an eight-month ban following a breach of betting rules.
A disappointing season for Spurs continues to edge towards a wholly drab finish. Their quest for a top-four finish is over and they now have a battle on their hands to keep hold of seventh place and a spot in the Europa Conference League with Aston Villa breathing down their neck having beaten them 2-1 last weekend. Ryan Mason's side have just one win in their last six games and will not face an easy task against Brentford today.
Hello and welcome to this live commentary for the Premier League fixture between Tottenham and Brentford from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
