Today on Monday, Brentford and Tottenham will have the honor of opening the traditional Boxing Day schedule as they meet each other on Monday afternoon at Gtech Community Stadium.
Brentford vs Tottenham Kick off today at 12:30 UK time
And it’s a place where Brentford have suffered just one defeat in seven games this season in the Premier League, scoring 13 goals in the process.
Be noted that the Antonio Conte’s side sit fourth in the table, three points ahead of Manchester United but having played a game more.
Date: 26 December 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Gtech Community Stadium (Brentford).
Spurs last outing before the mid-season break was a dramatic 4-3 win over Leeds but, with only two wins in their last five league matches and a few selection issues expected, they may struggle to get another three points on Monday.
Talented Hugo Lloris and Cristian Romero were both involved in the World Cup final so are unlikely to feature on Boxing Day, while Richarlison was injured during the tournament and looks set for a six-week spell on the sidelines.
The Bees are generally unbeaten in the previous three league affairs, a run that helped them move up to the 10th position in the standings.
The problem for Thomas Frank and his troops is, however, the poor form in the mid-season friendies since the Bees lost two and drew one of three outings during the World Cup break.
However, they have conceded at least two goals in each of these three games, including five in total in the last two outings against Celta Vigo and Wolfsburg base on records.
