Tottenham caretaker manager Ryan Mason was shown a yellow card in a lively first-half encounter between Tottenham and Brentford.

Tottenham caretaker manager Ryan Mason was shown a yellow card for complaining about a decision against Oliver Skipp in the first half of the game against Brentford.

Impressive Oliver Skipp was dictating the tempo of the game and looked to have won a tackle on Brentford left-back Rico Henry fairly just in front of the Brentford half but referee Jarred Gillet thought otherwise and called it for the Bees with half of the Tottenham players visibly in disagreement.

Manager Ryan Mason complained bitterly to fourth official Thomas Bramall but it appeared he overstepped his boundaries and was shown a yellow card for his trouble.

Mason looked quite energetic on the touchline as striker Harry Kane curled in his 28 league goal of the season to put his side ahead in the first half. In honesty, Kane was almost unplayable in the first half.

The England striker has been the shining light of what has been an incredibly challenging season for the Lilywhites and would have won the Golden Boot but for a certain Erling Haaland at Manchester City.

In one of the best first-half displays under Ryan Mason, Spurs looked really fluid and Arnaut Danjuma should have made it 2-0 when his brilliantly stooping header beat David Raya in post for the Bees but also missed the post by inches.

Brentford, often so dominant were reduced to a hand full of chances and restricted to playing on the break in a truly classic Tottenham first-half display.
