Tottenham Hotspur gave new manager Ange Postecoglou a rollercoaster Premier League debut when they started life after Harry Kane with a 2-2 draw in their opening game at Brentford on Sunday.

New signing James Maddison, taking on departed captain Kane’s number 10 shirt, pulled the strings in midfield and provided two assists as Spurs took the lead, fell behind and came back for a point with all the goals in a lively first half.

Cristian Romero headed the visitors in front in the 11th minute, after a long VAR check for possible offside, but Bryan Mbeumo equalised 15 minutes later from the penalty spot and the Bees were 2-1 up in the 36th after a deflected Yoane Wissa shot.

Tottenham, who said farewell to Kane when the club’s record scorer signed for Bayern Munich on Saturday, then made it 2-2 in first-half stoppage time when Emerson Royal lashed in a pass from Maddison.

As Bissouma seeks to regain possession after his error gives the ball away, he hauls back Wissa and Brentford will have a free-kick deep inside their own half.

Having received the ball from Maddison, Bissouma tries his luck with a shot from outside the box, which is blocked.

Tottenham are trying to apply some sustained pressure on the Brentford box, but their hosts are standing strong. Aside from conceding the opening goal via a set-piece, the Bees are proving difficult to break down.

Following his strike today, Wissa has now been involved in four goals across his last four starts in the Premier League (three of his own and one assist). That's as many as in his previous 13.

Richarlison and Emerson combine well on the edge of the box, but when Son receives the ball he can't bring it under his spell and Spurs' attack breaks down.

Mostly thanks to Toney's proficiency from the spot - and partly to Mbeumo's strike today - since their promotion to the Premier League in 2021, only Manchester City (16) have scored more penalties than Brentford (14) in England's top flight.
