Brentford Come From Behind Twice To Hold Liverpool In Thriller

Posted by

Brentford held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium thanks to a late equalizer from Yoane Wissa.

Wissa’s dinked finish over Alisson salvaged a point for the hosts, who matched Jurgen Klopp’s side for lengthy stretches and produced enough chances to take all three points.

After Ivan Toney diverted Sergi Canos’ low cross into the path of the defender, Ethan Pinnock poked home from close range to give Thomas Frank’s team a deserved early lead.

Curtis Jones put the visitors back in front with a long-range effort that took a terrible deflection off Kristoffer Ajer on its way in, but Brentford – and Wissa – had the final say.

The draw puts Liverpool a point clear at the top of the Premier League table, while the Bees move up to ninth place.
