Latest injury news from Brentford as Tottenham Hotspur set to face the Bees on Thursday
According to Football.London, Brentford boss Thomas Frank named the players he could see return to action for this week’s Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs host the newly-promoted team late in the night on 2 December.
The visitors have done well after getting promoted to the top division and are seven points above the relegation zone. Having beaten Everton in the league this weekend, the Bees will be looking to continue that streak when they travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham did not play this weekend as the match against Burnley was called off due to bad weather conditions. We are still in the hunt for a top-four finish this season and have a game in hand as compared to the rest of our competitors.
Speaking to the press, Frank gave an update on some of his important players ahead of the clash against the Lilywhites. It seems like the Danish manager will have a considerably fit team to choose from.
“No, Christian had a minor back issue and should be ready and available for Thursday. I don’t know exactly what happened to Rico but it was a knock, the same with Sergi so they couldn’t carry on unfortunately. I expect them to be ready for Thursday.”
Christian Norgaard suffered a back issue during the game against the Toffees but, Frank brushed it off and said it was a minor injury. Rico Henry and Sergi Canos both picked up a knock during the match, but the Brentford coach expects them to be in contention on Thursday.
If there is no change in their situation, the North London club will not receive any boost from the injuries their players endured. While this would have given us an advantage, we should focus on our own game rather than playing to what the opponents would do.

We need to be at our best as our opponents have been great this season and were unlucky at times to get an unfavourable result. Their game against league leaders Chelsea is a perfect example of how they lost despite looking better on the night.
That should be a warning to not take them for granted as they would pose a genuine challenge to us. Thomas Frank’s side has outscored us this season with 17 goals to 11 while tying in terms of the goals conceded with 17. Being well-rested after what transpired at Turf Moor this weeekend, we should take the game to them and tire them out to hand us an advantage.
