Brentford and Tottenham Hotspur played out a 2-2 draw in an exciting match, marking Tottenham’s first game without Harry Kane, who had recently moved to Bayern Munich. Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo scored the team’s first goal of the season from a penalty kick, cancelling out an early goal from Tottenham’s Cristian Romero, who headed in a free-kick delivered by debutant James Maddison.
Despite missing their talisman Ivan Toney, Brentford managed to take the lead through Yoane Wissa, with a goal assisted by Rico Henry. Emerson Royal then equalized for Tottenham with a well-placed finish during injury time in the first half. The game kicked off with a delay due to a water supply issue at the Gtech Community Stadium.
Tottenham’s new captain, Son Heung-min, conceded a penalty that Bryan Mbeumo converted for Brentford, while Wissa’s goal came from a cutback by Henry. Richarlison, attempting to fill the void left by Kane’s departure, struggled to make an impact in a central role for Spurs.
Brentford showed resilience despite missing Ivan Toney, with Bryan Mbeumo earning the highest match rating of 6.80. The game ended in a 2-2 draw, leaving both teams with a point to start their Premier League campaign.
