Tottenham and Brentford are both inconsistent with their form

Thus far in the Premier League season, both Brentford and Tottenham have proven inconsistent at best. Besides the win over Everton, Frank and company have had some big performances this season, including opening day 2-0 win over Arsenal, a thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool, and a 2-1 win over West Ham at London Stadium.

Unfortunately for Brentford, that stirring win over the Hammers was followed by four straight losses including dropping all six points in back-to-back losses against Burnley and Norwich.

Like the Bees, Spurs have been consistently inconsistent since their fortunate 3-0 start.

Despite the struggles, both teams are unbeaten in their last two matches, both coming off draws, followed by a 1 goal win. Brentford is trying to establish their legitimacy as a top-flight club and Spurs are trying to claw their way back into the top four fight, but only one can walk away with three points on Thursday, as Tottenham’s hectic December begins with a busy eight days.
