Our prediction for this Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when Brentford and Tottenham face each other at Brentford Community Stadium on Matchday 17. The Bees did well to shock star-studded Man City before the World Cup break, with the team putting an end to their four-game winless run. Thomas Frank’s men aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the local derby. All Ajer, Jansson, and Baptiste are out of contention with injuries, but Hickey and Goode are back to the squad.
Spurs, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 4-3 win over Leeds United, with the team remaining in the Champions League berth. Antonio Conte’s men are eager to rejoin the title race, but beating the Bees at Brentford Community Stadium is easier said than done. This match may come too early for Croatia international Ivan Perisic, who participated in the World Cup third-place playoffs. Midfielder Rodrigo Bentacur is banned for the match, while Brazil forward Richarlison misses out with injury.
Highlighted Player (Saman Ghoddos):
Saman Ghoddos is a product of FC Malmo football academy, but he started playing for IF Limhamn Bunkeflo at senior level. After scoring four goals in 41 appearances for the club the Swedish attacker moved to Treleborg, but he did not spend too much time at the club. In 2014 he signed a deal with Syrianska and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the Sodertalje Fotbollsarena outfit.
Saman Ghoddos, who was born in Malmo on September 6, 1996 played for Syrianska from 2014 to 2016 and then he moved to Ostersunds. The Swedish striker, who is used as an attacking midfielder as well, scored ten goals in 27 appearances for Ostersunds in the 2016 Allsvenskan campaign and he impressed in the 2017/2018 Europa League qualifiers.
Saman Ghoddos netted three goals in the process and helped the Swedish club book their place in the group stages of the European competition. Speaking of his personal life, you should bear in mind that Saman’s parents were born in Iran.

Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings.
