Tottenham 3-2 Brentford: James Maddison Makes Impactful Return from Injury Despite Clash with Neal Maupay

Tottenham fans eagerly anticipated James Maddison’s trademark dart-throwing celebration in Wednesday night’s match against Brentford, marking his first start in nearly three months.

However, Maddison’s celebration was hijacked by Neal Maupay, who scored Brentford’s opening goal and mimicked Maddison’s dart-throwing gesture, much to the chagrin of the home crowd.

Maddison, visibly displeased, exchanged words with Maupay after the incident, later revealing that he had jokingly reprimanded Maupay for copying his celebration.


Despite the initial setback, Maddison played a pivotal role in Tottenham’s 3-2 victory, contributing to all three goals as they mounted a remarkable comeback.

After scoring, Maddison’s teammates Brennan Johnson and Richarlison also mimicked his celebration, further taunting Maupay and the Brentford supporters.

Maddison added insult to injury by posting on Instagram, with a series of images including Maupay’s celebration, his own triumphant pose, and the final scoreline.

Maupay, acknowledging his premature celebration, expressed disappointment at not securing the win for Brentford but attempted to salvage some pride by highlighting his career achievements compared to Maddison’s. However, Maddison’s response hinted at Maupay’s antics living “rent-free” in his mind.
