Tottenham boss Antonio Conte: “Today was a good win. To get three points is not easy against Brentford, I have seen a good team, well organized, very dangerous in set-pieces. But today we showed a great desire to get three points, to win. And we fight to win the tackles and we were very, very concentrated.”
Brentford manager Thomas Frank: “In many ways, I was quite satisfied with the performance, we were brave and tried to create and build on the ball. We lacked the final top quality to create a lot of big changes.” he added. “We were very brave off the ball. We lost to a better team on the day. Despite being brave, if we want to win a game like this then we can never, ever concede a set-piece goal. The first goal we need to do better is the big moment.”
