In a pulsating match at Brentford, England skipper Harry Kane scored and teammate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg netted as Tottenham prevented the Bees from winning for the first time since 1948 in an incredible turnaround.
After Vitaly Janelt and Ivan Toney scored for Brentford, Kane became the first Premier League player to score since his penalty in England’s 2-1 World Cup quarter-final loss to France with a close-range header in the 65th minute.
Within six minutes, Hojbjerg curled home a finish to level the tie although neither side was able to find another goal.
The draw leaves Spurs fourth while Brentford remain ninth ahead of this afternoon’s kick-offs. The result comes after Toney was charged by the Football Association with 262 alleged betting breaches and he has until 4 January to respond to this charge.
