Brentford

Brentford picked their fourth win in the last five Premier League matches as they saw off West Ham 2-0 in an English Premier League match on Sunday afternoon. 

The Bees stunned Chelsea 4-1 last weekend and followed it up with another major upset as they brought down David Moyes’ Hammers.

Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney scored a goal each to help Brentford complete a league double over West Ham since 1953/54.

It was a match Thomas Frank’s men dominated from start to finish, with the likes of Christian Eriksen and Mbeumo all lively in the opening exchanges.

Despite the electric start, Brentford had to wait until the second half to get their opener as Mbeumo unleashed a shot straight into the bottom right corner after a near-perfect team effort.

Toney then made it 2-0 when he found some space inside the box and scored with a crashing header into the middle of the net, giving the goalkeeper no chance.

The win ensured Brentford to 13 on the log, while West Ham, who are chasing a European spot remained sixth on 51 points.

In another match, Leicester City survived a late scare to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 and move into the top half.

Ademola Lookman scored the opener in the 39th minute before Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall made it 2-0 before the break.

Palace got a lifeline when Youri Tielemans committed a foul inside the box, with referee, giving referee Robert Jones an easy task of awarding a penalty.

Wilfried Zaha though could not find the back of the net as Kasper Schmeichel kept the ball out of the net with a good save.

The Ivory Coast international though got to a rebound and managed to halve the scores for the visitors.

They could not get an equaliser though as the Foxes picked yet another win, their third in the last five matches.
