Tottenham players

In their penultimate Premier League game of a strong season, Brentford overcame an eight-month suspension handed down to striker Ivan Toney by defeating Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday. Bryan Mbeumo scored twice in the victory.

In their final home game of the season, the hosts took the lead thanks to Harry Kane‘s magnificent free kick, his 28th league goal of the campaign, and they dominated before halftime.

But after the break, Cameroonian forward Mbeumo scored twice with a left foot to completely change the game in just 12 minutes, dealing even further blow to seventh-placed Tottenham’s chances of making it to Europe.

It sparked chants at home against the club’s chairman, Daniel Levy, who acknowledged in his program notes that it had been a “immensely difficult season” for the team. The noise level rose when, thanks to Mbeumo’s pass, Yoane Wissa sealed the victory for Brentford in the 88th minute.

A top-half finish is guaranteed for ninth-place Brentford, and they even have a remote chance of passing Tottenham and earning a spot in Europe.
