Tottenham lost ground in the race for the top four as they were held to a goalless draw at Brentford.

Just as they had done against Brighton last weekend, Tottenham made a sloppy start and should have been behind at the break.

Twice Ivan Toney saw a volley blocked from a corner, those efforts coming either side of a header sent onto the crossbar.

Brentford continued to be the more dangerous side after the break as Harry Kane was forced to clear a Pontus Jansson header off the line.

Spurs tried to rally with some late pressure but never looked like scoring.

Here is how Jack Rosser rated Tottenham…

Hugo Lloris 6

A couple of smart saves to deny former teammate Christian Eriksen.

Cristian Romero 6

Fought well with Toney but far from the best display since his arrival last summer.

Eric Dier 6

Kept a clean sheet but Spurs were hardly solid throughout. A better forward line would have punished them.

Ben Davies 6

Desperately tried to rally Spurs time and again and pick up the pace from the back but to no avail.

Emerson Royal 5

Too easily beaten by Toney at set pieces and offered little in the final third.

Rodrigo Bentancur 5

Blocked a couple of efforts from Toney in the first half but poor in possession.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 4

Sloppy and slow on the ball, struggled to gain any kind of consistent control of the game.

Ryan Sessegnon 5

Tried to get forward but offered little down the left and struggled with Byran Mbuemo.

Dejan Kulusevski 6

Tried to create chances late on and gave the Brentford defence something to think about.

Heung-min Son 5

Constantly found himself running into red and white shirts and could not find an answer.

Harry Kane 6

More notable for his work at the back, heading a Pontus Jansson effort off the line, than anything going forward. Starved of service.
