Ivan Toney has scored 63 goals in 111 appearances for Brentford, but the Bees will have to find another source of goals while the striker serves an eight-month ban for betting offences. Thomas Frank has Yoane Wissa, Bryan Mbeumo and Kevin Schade at his disposal, and he'll be encouraged by the fact that his side won four of the five games Toney missed last season, but a player of Toney's talents would be missed by any team. Brentford beat Liverpool and Man Utd at home last season, and did the double over treble-winning Man City, so they won't be afraid when Spurs make the trip across town today.

Wissa and Mbeumo both start today to fill the Toney-shaped hole, while new signing Mark Flekken is in goal as David Raya finalises his move to Arsenal. Defender Nathan Collins also makes his first start having arrived from Wolves last month. 

Another new era gets underway for Tottenham on Sunday lunchtime, with Ange Postecoglou taking charge of his first competitive game as the new head coach. With no European football on the menu for Spurs this season, the former Celtic boss will have plenty of time to get his ideas across. James Maddison has arrived from Leicester to strengthen their attacking options, while Harry Kane's has departed for Bayern Munich, but there's more hope and optimism around N17 than there has been for some time. Can they get the Aussie boss's tenure off to a winning start in west London?

Postecoglou's first starting XI includes new signings Micky van de Ven and Destiny Udogie in a back four alongside Royal and Romero, with Vicario in goal and James Maddison pulling the strings in midfield. Richarlison assumes the Harry Kane role up front.
