Tottenham returned to the top four in the Premier League table on Saturday with victory over Leeds United and they switch their focus to a midweek clash against Brentford.

The Bees hold fourth spot in the Championship after their fixture with Bristol City was postponed and will need to be on top of their game if they are to cause an upset on Tuesday night.

While Spurs have edged past Chelsea on penalties and outclassed Stoke City, Brentford started their journey to the last four when their upcoming foes were still involved in pre-season.

Brentford required penalties to see off Wycombe Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion along the way, but overcoming Southampton, Fulham and Newcastle United means that they will not be underestimated by their hosts.

Mourinho’s side have won twice and lost a similar number of games in their last 5 matches, leaving them in fourth place on the EPL table with 29 points.

Tottenham vs Brentford prediction

This has the billing to be a cracking encounter and with all the upsets that the domestic cup brings with it, there should not be a lack of goals on the night.

Spurs do have the quality to grind out a win but we can’t write the Championship side off. So, extra time could be a possibility in this game.
