Spurs fight back to draw at Brentford in first game without Kane


Tottenham Hotspur put up a fighting effort as they played a 2-2 draw against Brentford in their opening game of the Premier League season.

Spurs are no longer with star forward Harry Kane, who finally left the club for Bayern Munich over the weekend.

Tottenham got ahead in the 11th minute of the game through Cristian Romero’s opener before the hosts pegged back in the 26th minute through Bryan Mbeumo penalty.

Spurs kept on the press and pulled a goal back to level through Emerson Royal’s equalizer just before the halftime whistle.

Tottenham were the better team in the second half but either side could not find a winner.
