Brentford pulled off one of the shocking football results of the weekend in the Premier League with a last-minute winner at the London Stadium. Brentford completely dominated the first half showing no signs that they were the newly-promoted side. Bryan Mbuemo scored the opener midway through the first half. West Ham was a much-improved side in the second half and was rewarded when Jarrod Bowen scored with a half-volley to square the match. With just a minute left on the clock, Pontus Jansson got his header on target which was saved and the rebound was hammered home by Yoane Wissa.

Managers Reaction

West Ham boss David Moyes: “When you become a club that wins you get used to it and I think Brentford will keep ongoing. They ran Liverpool close and we are really disappointed we lost 2-1 if we won 2-1 I don’t think anybody would have complained.”

Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “We came out with the confident attitude but also very humble about the situation playing against a very good team. Then in the second half, Liverpool showed why they are a top-six team. We defended well in the box and put out bodies on the line, although I want to play better in spells. But after the storm, everything seemed settled but they scored. But we kept believing and it was a fantastic way to win the game.”
