Tottenham XI vs Brentford: Danjuma starts – Starting lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest today

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Cristian Romero are both missing today’s Tottenham squad to face Brentford due to injury.

Ryan Mason has handed surprise starts to Arnaut Danjuma and Davinson Sanchez with Yves Bissouma also back in the team.

The midfielder made his first appearance since February as a substitute as Spurs went down 2-1 to Aston Villa last weekend but is pushing to start, with Oliver Skipp most likely to make way.


Tottenham boss Mason had suggested that Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga remain “touch and go” to be fit after missing the trip to Villa Park, with both on the bench today.The acting head coach’s biggest call came in attack, where Dejan Kulusevski has beaten Richarlison for a start alongside Harry Kane and Heung-min Son – with Danjuma also starting in what appears a 4-2-3-1 set-up.

Hugo Lloris, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ryan Sessegnon are all long-term absentees.

Tottenham XI: Forster; Royal, Sanchez, Lenglet, Davies; Skipp, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Son, Danjuma; Kane

Subs: Austin, Porro, Tanganga, Dier, Perisic, Craig, Sarr, Lucas, Richarlison.
