Antonio Conte supervised another another Premier League home triumph as his side defeated Brentford 2-0 on Thursday night, swapping humbling Europa Conference League nights and freezing Turf Moor pitches for a bustling Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs took the lead after Sergi Canos scored an own goal in the 12th minute, then Son Heung-min finished off a sweeping counter-attack for a 2-0 victory, with Tottenham’s first-team XI showing the fringe players who were embarrassed in Slovenia how it’s done.
Conte has moved Spurs back into European contention after gaining seven points from a possible nine in the Premier League since taking over.
They are currently sixth in the table, one point behind fierce rivals Arsenal with a game in hand.

Conte is confident that Tottenham will be able to bring back Giovani Lo Celso for this match, while Cristian Romero will be out until 2022 due to a hamstring injury.
Dane Scarlett is also suffering from an ankle problem, but he was never going to play in this game, as Conte is expected to choose an unchanged starting lineup from the Brentford win.
Kane has scored from the penalty spot in each of his past three Premier League games for Norwich, and he might now become the first player in the competition’s history to score four times in a row from 12 yards against the same opponent.
Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Reguilon; Lucas, Kane, Son
