Conte: Time to forget World Cup and focus on the rest of the Premier League season

Brentford host Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day in the first Premier League game back since the break for the World Cup.

Thomas Frank and his team beat Man City in their last outing, a match where Ivan Toney starred and scored twice – though he’s now subject to FA charges over alleged betting breaches. As for Spurs, they defeated Leeds in a seven-goal thriller in mid-November, a result which left them fourth in the table and hoping that they can mount a realistic charge for the top-four – and even maybe a title tilt – once again.

However, they remain eight points off Arsenal for this term and have played one game more, too. Harry Kane starts and features for the first time since his penalty miss for England in the World Cup quarter-final against France, but French captain Hugo Lloris is rested with Fraser Forster deputising in goal.
