ottenham lost ground in the race for the top four as they were held to a goalless draw at Brentford.
Just as they had done against Brighton last weekend, Tottenham made a sloppy start and should have been behind at the break.
Twice Ivan Toney saw a volley blocked from a corner, those efforts coming either side of a header sent onto the crossbar.
Brentford continued to be the more dangerous side after the break as Harry Kane was forced to clear a Pontus Jansson header off the line.
Spurs tried to rally with some late pressure but never looked like scoring.
Here is how Jack Rosser rated Tottenham…
Hugo Lloris 6
A couple of smart saves to deny former teammate Christian Eriksen.
Cristian Romero 6
Fought well with Toney but far from the best display since his arrival last summer.
Eric Dier 6
Kept a clean sheet but Spurs were hardly solid throughout. A better forward line would have punished them.
Ben Davies 6
Desperately tried to rally Spurs time and again and pick up the pace from the back but to no avail.
Emerson Royal 5
Too easily beaten by Toney at set pieces and offered little in the final third.
Rodrigo Bentancur 5
Blocked a couple of efforts from Toney in the first half but poor in possession.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 4
Sloppy and slow on the ball, struggled to gain any kind of consistent control of the game.
Ryan Sessegnon 5
Tried to get forward but offered little down the left and struggled with Byran Mbuemo.
Dejan Kulusevski 6
Tried to create chances late on and gave the Brentford defence something to think about.
Heung-min Son 5
Constantly found himself running into red and white shirts and could not find an answer.
Harry Kane 6
More notable for his work at the back, heading a Pontus Jansson effort off the line, than anything going forward. Starved of service.
