Super Eagles midfielder, Frank Onyeka was missing in action as Tottenham battled back to tie Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium.
The London team rallied from behind to steal a point against Thomas Frank’s club in a 2-2 tie, although the star was not included in the squad.
The Nigerian played a significant part for the Bees before the Premier League World Cup break and was expected to be important for the West Londoners on Boxing Day.
Despite all the excitement surrounding his move to Brentford last season, Frank Onyeka’s first Premier League campaign was not a success.
In his debut season, he played in 20 matches for the Bees, but failed to record a goal or an assist.
However, he has produced a fair amount of performances so far, appearing in 12 domestic league games for Frank’s team and providing an assist in 4 starts.
The 24-year-old was nowhere to be seen on his team’s bench today as the Spurs fought valiantly to overcome a 2-nil deficit.
Onyeka missed the game reportedly due to a hamstring injury, but it was anticipated that the Nigerian will be heavily involved when the two London clubs square off.
