Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Brentford: Post-Match Analysis

Tottenham Hotspur won against Brentford on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final by 2-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and move onto the final of the Cup after six years.

Jose Mourinho was appointed to win trophies for Tottenham and he had a great opportunity to lift a trophy for Spurs after 13 years. This will be another great achievement for Mourinho in his successful managerial career where he has won silverware with every single team. 

Two goals from Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-Min in either side of both half earned them a comfortable victory against the in-form Championship side Brentford.

Now Spurs will play against the winner of the second semi-final between Manchester United vs Manchester City in the final at Wembley Stadium which will take place in April.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho shuffled a bit his team from their win at weekend against Leeds United. Davidson Sanchez and Serge Aurier were given chance in the match and Sergio Reguilon started on the left-back.

Moussa Sissoko started in the midfield and Lucas Moura on the right-wing position. Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min started in the center-forward and left-wing positions respectively.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Brentford Post Match Analysis:

The game started very openly and end to end which is unlikely from Jose Mourinho’s side but the Spurs got the crucial goal on the 12th-minute mark from an excellent cross from Reguilon and a guided header from Sissoko between a huge gap in Brentford central defence.

This goal calmed down the nerves of the players in a big semi-final game. Soon after the goal Son had an opportunity to score the second but his shot brilliantly saved by Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.

Brentford looked good in transition but the quality of the final ball wasn’t there to trouble Spurs’ backline.

Straightway Brentford had a great opportunity in the second half but a great block from Aurier denied Ivan Toney.

On the 65th minute, Brentford thought they scored the equaliser but VAR showed that Toney was just offside and the goal was cancelled.

Straight after this incident Spurs got the second goal from a counter-attack and a great through pass from Tanguy Ndombele and a cool finish from Son wrote the fate of the game.

In the end, Brentford’s night got even bitter when their midfielder Jonathan Da Silva was sent off with the help of VAR for a foul on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. 

Notable Performances:

Son Heung-Min(LW) – (7.5/10)(Tottenham Hotspur): Scored the second goal in a crucial time and overall he worked very hard defensively and offensively.

Moussa Sissoko(CM) – (7.5/10)(Tottenham Hotspur): Scored the opener from a great header and did very well in the middle of the park.

Jonathan Da Silva(CM) – (5/10)(Brentford): Didn’t have a great game and in the end got the red card unluckily.

Tottenham Hotspur’s next match is away to Marine in F.A Cup on the weekend and the next Premier League match is against Aston Villa at Villa Park on 13th of January.

Brentford will play next at home against Middlesbrough in F.A Cup on Saturday and their next game in Championship is against Reading in Madejski Stadium on 16th January.
