Brentford smashed Chelsea 4-1 at Stamford Bridge

Brentford comes from behind to shock Chelsea with a 4-1 win. The game got going in the second half, with Rudiger scoring a superb long-range goal just three minutes after the break, which went in off the post.

Just two minutes later, Brentford was level through Janelt, and Eriksen fired them ahead not long after following a superb counter-attack.

Janelt then got his second of the match with a lovely chip over Mendy from a tight angle before Wissa came off the bench to round it off for the Bees.

Goals:

WHAT A GOAL! Rudiger is a long way out when it’s knocked back to him by Kante, but none of the Brentford players is closing him down. He cuts inside with his first touch, has a glance up and then aims. It dips over the defenders in front of him, and Raya is beaten as it bounces off the inside of the post and in. 1-0 Chelsea.

JANELT EQUALISES! What a start to the second half! Mbuemo just had a shot saved by Mendy and Brentford went straight on the attack again. Mbuemo knocks it onto Janelt, and he’s unmarked on the edge of the box. He takes the shot the first time, rifling it into the near top corner. 1-1.

ERIKSEN SCORES! And just like that, Brentford has turned things around! Brentford clear their lines from the corner, and it’s all about the build-up from Mbuemo. He drives down the left and squares an excellent low cross into the middle of the box. Eriksen is entirely unmarked, and he lifts it over the scrambling Mendy. 2-1 Brentford.

JANELT SCORES AGAIN! Raya goes along with a free-kick, and Toney nods it on before he gets it back from Mbuemo. He times the through ball to Janelt ideally, and from a very tight angle, he chips a beautiful shot over Mendy, who rushed off his line and into the back of the net. 3-1 Brentford.

WISSA SCORES! Eriksen takes the free-kick short to Norgaard, and he whips a great cross into the box. Pinnock nods it on, and Rudiger slices at his clearance, gifting it to Wissa. He drops it before drilling a low shot past the static Mendy and into the bottom corner. 4-1 Brentford.

So, what’s next?

Brentford moves up to 14th and is now 11 points clear of the drop zone. Next up for them is West Ham at home.
