Tottenham Hotspur completed yet another second-half comeback this season, this time coming from two-goals down to salvage a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw away to Brentford.
The Bees’ top scorer Ivan Toney thought he doubled his side’s lead before HT after rounding Forster and tapping in, but the goal was ruled out for offside.
The start to the second period indicated it could be another of those on the horizon, as they came out looking like a completely different side, playing with more aggression and intent.
Bryan Mbeumo’s corner was flicked on by Christian Nørgaard to an unmarked Toney, who made the statuesque Spurs defence pay by tapping the ball in.
Conte’s men pushed up the pitch in a desperate search to turn the game around, and the Bees’ lead was reduced to one around the hour mark, as Harry Kane rose highest in the box to beautifully guide Clément Lenglet’s cross into the back of the net, making him the Premier League’s outright top scorer on Boxing Day, with 10 goals.
The typical Spurs second-half comeback was complete just minutes later as this time Pierre-Emile Højbjerg was unmarked in the box, and he had the time to take a touch and smash the ball past David Raya.
