Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
Spurs miss the chance to leapfrog Arsenal back into fourth place, and they stay in fifth, two points behind their North London rivals. Next up for them is Leicester City. Brentford are now unbeaten in their last four games, and they move up to 11th. They travel to Manchester United for their next game.
It finishes goalless between Brentford and Tottenham. The hosts created the better chances throughout the game, with Toney coming closest through two headers which hit the bar and the post. Jansson also had an effort cleared off the line by Kane before Lloris denied Eriksen. For the second game running, Spurs didn't manage a shot on target, but Kane had a late chance to snatch the three points - his bicycle kick bounced wide.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: BRENTFORD 0-0 TOTTENHAM.
90' + 2' GREAT CHANCE! Spurs go straight down the other end and Kulusevski swings a good cross in from the right. Kane has his back to goal, so he improvises with a bicycle kick, but it flies just wide of the far post.
90' + 1' OFF THE POST! It's another wonderful set-piece delivery from Eriksen and Toney rises highest at the far post. He nods it across goal, and Lloris is beaten but it bounces back off the woodwork.
R. Bentancur
Yellow Card
90' Raya went long with the clearance following Spurs' free-kick and it's a clumsy challenge on Mbuemo by Bentancur, who is the latest player to go into the book.
M. Sørensen
Yellow Card
89' Sorensen is beaten by the bounce of the long clearance and he drags Lucas back when the forward gets in behind him, which earns him a booking.
88' Henry makes a good run down the left before swinging a deep cross into the box. He picks out Mbuemo at the far post, but he gets caught under it and his header loops high and wide.
Lucas Moura
Emerson
86' Second change for Spurs now as they look to try and get a late winner. Emerson goes off, with Lucas on in his place.
84' There are big shouts for a penalty from the Brentford fans behind the goal as Toney is bundled over in the middle. The referee didn't see anything wrong with it though, and Spurs break on the counter.
82' Son spins before playing an early throughball into the box for Kane. Jansson is scrambling back into position and does well to stretch out a leg to stop it from reaching the forward.
80' Spurs are keeping Brentford penned back deep in their own half at the moment and Emerson's low cross takes a deflection off Henry. It bounces to Kulusevski, who manages to win a corner, but it comes to nothing.
J. Dasilva
M. Jensen
78' And Jensen is also making way, with Dasilva replacing him.
Y. Wissa
S. Ghoddos
78' Double change for Brentford now and Ghoddos limps off the field after receiving treatment. Wissa comes on in his place.
76' Kulusevski wrongfoots Henry with a clever turn before clipping a good cross into the box. Kane throws himself forward, but it skims the top of his head before Roerslev hooks it away behind him.
D. Sánchez
R. Sessegnon
74' Spurs are making the first change of the game here, and it's Sessegnon that's taken off and replaced by Sanchez.
72' Romero caught Toney in the side of the head with his elbow, and the forward stayed down. He's okay to carry on after receiving treatment though.
70' It's Brentford that can't get out of their own half at the moment, but Spurs' quality is just lacking in the final third. Sessegnon gets ahead of Ghoddos down the left but sends his low cross straight against Roerslev.
68' CHANCE! The game has really opened up now and Spurs win a corner of their own at the other end. Son whips it into the near post and Bentancur flicks it on, but he sends it just over the bar.
P. Jansson
Yellow Card
66' Spurs tried to break on the counter following Brentford's corner, but Jansson tugged Hojbjerg back to stop him. He's shown the first yellow card of the game.
66' OFF THE LINE! Eriksen swings the resulting corner into the box and Lloris parries it away. Roerslev swings it back in and Jansson flicks on a header which is blocked on the line by Kane. Eriksen latches onto the rebound, but his low shot is pushed away by the goalkeeper.
65' CHANCE! Dier sloppily gifts possession to Jensen and he slides it through for Toney, but he has his back to goal. He squares it to Eriksen, who drills a low, first-time shot on goal, but it deflects wide.
63' Another free-kick for Brentford, this time on the other side. Eriksen steps up to shoot from this one, but his effort is straight at the wall.
61' Mbuemo is bundled over down the left and Brentford have a free-kick in a good position. Eriksen drills it down the left for Mbuemo to chase, but Kulusevski gets to it first.
59' Spurs are all over the place as Eriksen swings another corner in and it pinballs off Jansson, Romero, Toney, Dier and Sorensen before it comes out to Ghoddos on the right. He tries to whip it into the six-yard box, but Lloris collects this one.
57' Spurs have gone on to lose six of their last eight Premier League games that were 0-0 at half-time (W1 D1).
55' BLOCK! The game is opening up now and Emerson pulls it back to Kane, who has space in the middle of the box, but Sorensen recovers to block his effort. Kulusevski also sees an effort turned away by the defender before the follow-up from Bentancur hits Jansson.
54' Son's short corner comes to nothing, but Spurs keep the attack alive by switching it out to Kulusevski. He curls a great cross into the far post and Jensen makes an important interception to stop Son from having a tap-in.
52' CHANCE! It's a good throughball from Romero into Kane on the edge of the box and he does well to hold off Jansson as he turns towards goal. He manages to get a shot away, but it deflects off the defender and over the bar.
50' Ghoddos clears it out to the right and Toney is chasing it down. Lloris comes a long way out of his box and crashes into the forward, and luckily, manages to stop his run. The goalkeeper has looked shaky since coming back out!
48' It's well worked from left to right by Spurs and Kane can't get the ball out from under his feet quick enough to have a shot. He pulls it back to Hojbjerg, but his floated cross flies straight out of play.
46' There's a very nervy moment at the back seconds after the kick-off when Mbuemo sprints to close down Lloris. He slices it clear just as the forward sticks a leg to try and block it, and Spurs get away with one there!
46' Brentford get us back underway for the second half!
Conte was not happy with his side's performance in the first half; they didn't create anything of note, which will need to change if they want to keep the top four in their sights. Brentford had a great first half, and Frank will be hoping for more of the same. They need to take advantage of their chances while they're on top though.
It's goalless at the break between Brentford and Spurs. The hosts have been the better side so far, and could easily be ahead through Toney, but his header thumped back off the crossbar. He and Mbuemo each had a couple of chances blocked as well. Spurs have struggled to get into the game and their only two shots have both come from distance.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: BRENTFORD 0-0 TOTTENHAM.
45' Sorensen puts another long throw-in into the box and it's headed back out to him by Dier. He volleys a cross back towards Toney, but Lloris rushes through the crowd to collect it.
43' Eriksen's cross-field pass to Henry is just too short and Emerson is able to break on the counter. He bursts forward down the right before he's toppled over by Sorensen.
41' Toney is left in a heap when he's dispossessed, but Ghoddos quickly wins it back from Kane. Toney loops a very deep cross in, and there's nothing his team-mates can do with it.
39' Son touches it through for Davies to chase, but Roerslev gets there just ahead of him to touch it back to Raya. The Welshman keep the pressure on and the keeper just manages to slice it away.
37' Spurs just can't get out at the moment, and Conte is looking more frustrated on the touchline. Hojbjerg gets caught out when they try to play out at the back, but Eriksen's cross is over everyone.
35' Sorensen puts a long throw-in into the box and Spurs just can't clear their lines. It's put back in by Jansson, Eriksen and Jensen before Emerson is finally able to hook it away.
33' Son is down just outside the box, asking for a free-kick that isn't coming from the referee. Sessegnon carries on, but whips his cross through the gap in the crowd and straight out of play.
31' A few moments ago, Jansson collided with Kane and he's pulled up holding his thigh. The referee paused the game, but he'll be able to carry on without needing treatment.
29' Brentford are keeping their shape well and when Sessegnon and Son can't find a way down the left, it's pulled back to Bentancur. His only option is to have a go from range, and he blazes it high over the bar.
27' Jansson hooks a long clearance upfield and Toney has acres of space to run into down the right. He has Mbuemo up with him and tries to fizz it to him at the near post, but Hojbjerg is there to cut it out ahead of him.
25' Despite his team being on top, Thomas Frank doesn't look too happy on the sideline. Henry wins it back off Emerson down the left before driving forward, but it's another poor cross into the box.
23' It's better from Spurs now as they're keeping Brentford penned back in their own half, but they can't get in behind. Sessegnon manages to dribble his way into space down the left, but his cross is blocked.
21' Brentford's high press is causing the visitors some real problems and they've won another corner. Eriksen swings another deep cross into the box and Toney's volley takes a nick off Romero to help it wide.
19' Spurs just can't keep up with Brentford at the moment and it's switched back out to Mbuemo on the right. He tries to play a one-two with Jense, but Sessegnon intercepts. He takes a heavy touch to give away a corner, but it comes to nothing.
17' OFF THE BAR! Eriksen swings the resulting corner into the box and Toney towers over everyone after making a free run through the box. He thumps a header towards goal and Lloris is stretching, but it bounces back off the bar.
16' Brentford are enjoying a good spell of possession here and Janelt gets past Bentancur with a clever drop of the shoulder. It's switched out to Ghoddos on the right, but his cross is blocked by Davies.
14' Son's corner is cleared at the near post and Mbuemo tries to break quickly on the counter. He ends up having to go back to Henry, who does well not to lose out as Romero comes sliding in.
12' Romero lifts it over the top to Kane, and he ends up on the floor after colliding with Sorensen. He quickly gets back up to try and have a shot, but Henry puts it out for a corner, which comes to nothing.
10' Brentford are hosting Spurs for the first time in any competition since a 0-0 draw in the EFL Cup in September 2000, and for the first time in a league match since August 1949 (a 4-1 defeat).
8' Kane is dispossessed on the halfway line, but Janelt can't keep hold of it. Bentancur plays a first-time throughball into the box, but there's too much on it for Son, and Raya collects.
6' Brentford are keeping the pressure on here with a series of corners. Eriksen's latest cross is swung deep to the far post and Toney meets it on the volley. Romero didn't know too much about it, but he was in the right place to make the block.
4' CHANCE! Jensen puts the pressure on Davies and Janelt follows in to nick it off Sessegnon. It's squared to Mbuemo, who drills a low shot on goal, but a deflection off Dier helps it wide of the post.
2' Jensen's loose touch goes straight to Bentancur and he looks for Son's run down the right of the box. He gets ahead of Sorensen to backheel it to Emerson, but the flag is up against him.
1' Kulusevski gets the game underway for Spurs!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away!
