Beesotted contributors The Gowler and Paul Kowalczyk (@BeesBreakdown) give us the tactical and statistical lowdown of Brentford’s win against Tottenham.

Thomas Frank shocked some when the announced lineup suggested Brentford would start in a 4-3-3. Brentford have only come out in a 5-3-2 against Big 6 clubs this season. Thomas Frank has also been conservative away from home, using a 5-3-2 away at Leeds earlier this season. Brentford came out with their typical back 4 of Henry, Mee, Pinnock, and Hickey. The midfield trio consisted of Jensen, Janelt, and Onyeka. The front 3 was Schade, Wissa, and Mbeumo.

Spurs have gone back and forth with a back 3 or back 4 plenty this season. Ryan Mason chose a back 4 against the Bees, using Emerson, Sanchez, Lenglet, and Davies. Spurs started in a 4-4-2 with Danjuma and Son the wide midfielders, joined by Bissouma and Skipp in the middle. Kane and Kulusevski led the line for Tottenham, with the pair dropping deep to receive the ball.
