It seems that losing to Villa in the last round has brought a big impact to Mei Sen.
So in the last home game of the season, Tottenham changed again. In the face of brentford, who is in charge of the suspension of Ivan Toni, Mei Sen showed off Kane, Sun Xingyu, Danjuma and Kulusevski as if to show off how many strikers he had.
The last home game, I want to get more goals in return, at least to give the fans a happy ending. This mood is of course understandable, but Tottenham has not reached the stage of wanting nothing, and theoretically there is still a European war to fight for, so the offensive and defensive balance cannot be relaxed.
As a result, they lost at this point.
At home, the four strikers started, and the effect that Mei Sen wanted appeared at the beginning:
However, only 2 minutes later, brentford completed the counterattack:
After the four strikers, Skip and Bisoma came to the left half, so once they dropped the ball, the right half was empty, which made brentford easily advance to the frontcourt.
Of course, Tottenham Hotspur played at home, and tactically put more power into the attack, and the players put more enthusiasm into it, so they quickly won a set-piece opportunity at the foot of the frontcourt, and Kane made a penalty:
The 11th minute, and therefore played a counterattack:
However, as the momentum of the opening game dropped, Tottenham’s tactical imbalance between attack and defense gradually emerged.
Mei Sen’s four strikers are full of momentum, but the left and right wingers can’t perform the duty of death prevention, and they may not be guaranteed to be in place, so it is inevitable to stand out from the taste of 424 at some moments:
Therefore, as long as brentford crosses the first line of Tottenham Hotspur, it is easy to capture the space of two midfielders:
But on the other hand, Tottenham can also play a threat by relying on its many attackers and outstanding player ability:
Therefore, the game has been developing in the direction of mutual stabbing, but compared with Tottenham, brentford can’t hurt Tottenham for the time being because of the ability of the personnel.
From a certain point of view, strong teams pay so much attention to attack in the league. If their efficiency is high enough, for example, they score three or four goals in this half, then there is nothing to say tactically.
However, Tottenham exhausted a half and scored only one.
On the other hand, if brentford can only play such an offensive efficiency and can’t improve it, it’s no big problem. Tottenham will probably win a thrilling victory at home.
However, brentford has a successful hand, so does Frank.
Back at half-time, Frank took the lead and replaced Oneka with Damsgaard, who was shorter, more flexible and better at finding and using space in the opponent’s back.
This substitution is immediate.
The 50th minute of the game, brentford started to attack from the touchline ball. When Damsgaard caught the ball, there was no defense. After the ball, brentford faced the Tottenham defense, so he was assigned to the weak side and scored successfully:
After the score was equalized, Tottenham could still show its advantage when it had the ball:
Kane also got a chance:
However, as the space around the lower back is more easily used by opponents, the pressure on the defensive end of Tottenham Hotspur is gradually increasing. Even if brentford directly attacks the ribs without mobilization, there is room for starting:
In the 61st minute, brentford directly hit behind him from the right, and Mbeumo scored another goal:
As soon as the goal was scored, Tottenham, who had planned to comfort the fans at the last home, immediately became impetuous, and started with four strikers. Mei Sen has cornered himself. Even if the score is behind now and he needs to score, he can’t play five strikers, can he?
In this way, Lucas Jr.’ s appearance in the farewell game at home has also become a very stressful situation.
On the contrary, on brentford’s side, Frank saw the score reversed and the situation was dominant, while Tottenham put on an attacker with better physical fitness and decisively put on a five-guard. The team also shrank to the backcourt, wholeheartedly protecting the goal and the score, and the ideas off and on the court were very clear.
And even if Mei Sen constantly deployed troops after that, he didn’t shoot many waves in the end, and the precious opportunity besieged didn’t hit until injury time:
At that time, the score was 1-3 because of Tottenham’s own mistakes.
In the end, Tottenham did not escape the fate of losing in the last home game of the season.
In fact, the seed of losing the game started as a four-striker in Mei Sen, but it was planted when only one goal was scored in the first half. It just needs to be seen whether brentford can make it blossom and bear fruit.
So from this point of view, although they lost Ivan Tony, they still have Frank. In half time, Frank clearly saw the obvious defensive problems of Tottenham Hotspur in midfield, so Darmstadt was very accurate at half time, and directly got through his own offensive line, while Mbewu Mo Ye lived up to expectations and seized the most critical two opportunities.
Next season, brentford’s first priority is obviously to find an excellent striker to replace the vacancy left by Ivan Toni after being suspended for a long time. I believe that under Frank’s training and arrangement, their problems will not be great.
As long as you don’t fall behind in the first half, you should at least be able to guarantee the position of the middle reaches next season.
As for Tottenham, their work is obviously much bigger and more difficult.
