Tottenham back into top four after second-half comeback

Tottenham secured a thrilling 3-2 win against Brentford, reclaiming fourth spot in the Premier League after a chaotic second half.

Tottenham has secured their place in the Champions League after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Brentford. The first half of the game was slow, with Spurs trailing after Neal Maupay's 15th-minute goal. However, a powerful half-time team talk from Ange Postecoglou seemed to do the trick.

Destiny Udogie and substitute Brennan Johnson scored within 72 seconds of each other at the start of the second period, followed by Richarlison's seventh goal in his last seven Premier League games. Ivan Toney also scored for Brentford, but Tottenham held on to leapfrog Aston Villa and reclaim the fourth spot.

Spurs were eager to bounce back after exiting the FA Cup last Friday, and the return of James Maddison and Brentford's Ivan Toney added to the excitement. Despite all eyes being on Toney, it was Maupay who broke the deadlock with a goal, with Brentford taking a surprise lead.

Tottenham reacted well to going behind, with Timo Werner and Richarlison testing the Brentford defense. Frustration began to boil over, but Postecoglou's double change at half-time with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Johnson introduced, turned the game around. Udogie and Johnson's quick goals were followed by Richarlison's goal, putting Tottenham in the lead.

Brentford remained a threat, with Toney scoring again and Maddison leaving the game early due to cramps. However, Tottenham held on to secure a thrilling 3-2 victory. The game was full of excitement, with both teams showing determination and skill. It was a well-deserved win for Tottenham, securing their place in the Champions League.
