Ryan Mason has named the Tottenham team for the final home game of the season as Thomas Frank’s Brentford are the visitors
Ryan Mason has named a much-changed Tottenham Hotspur team to face Brentford in the north London club’s final home game of the season.
Spurs need to try to win both of their remaining matches and hope Brighton slip up in order for Mason’s side to grab sixth place and Europa League football next season. Tottenham can finish anywhere from sixth to tenth depending on the results of the final matches of a disappointing season.
Mason has been forced into a few changes to his Tottenham team with both Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Cristian Romero missing the game through injury, the latter picking his up early in the defeat at Aston Villa. With Eric Dier fit enough to be back on the bench with Japhet Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez steps back into the defence.
In the midfield, Yves Bissouma comes back for his first Premier League start since New Year’s Day while there is a first start for the club for Arnaut Danjuma.
That line-up gives Mason the opportunity to play with with a 4-4-2 with Kulusevski and Danjuma or Son as the wingers or a 4-2-3-1 with any of the three playing through the centre behind Kane.
Here’s the team Mason has chosen:
Forster, Davies, Lenglet, Sánchez, Royal; Bissouma, Skipp; Son, Kulusevski, Danjuma; Kane. Subs: Austin, Porro, Dier, Tanganga, Craig, Sarr, Perisic, Richarlison, Lucas.
