Brentford put on a fantastic performance to beat Chelsea for the first time since 1939, coming from behind to stun Thomas Tuchel’s side with three goals in ten minutes in the second half before adding a fourth late on to humiliate the Champions League holders.
The Bees had the best of the first half, but Antonio Rudiger punished them for not taking chances three minutes after the restart with a superb 30-yard finish past David Raya.
Brentford’s reaction was immediate and dramatic, with Vitaly Janelt equalising two minutes later, before the golden moment in the 54th minute, when Bryan Mbeumo squared a pass for Eriksen to score in front of the ecstatic home crowd.
Brentford didn’t stop there, with Janelt breaking clear on the hour to beat Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, before replacement Yoane Wissa rounded off the scoring in the closing minutes.
Brentford currently have 33 points, 11 more than Watford, who are in third place, and can almost certainly expect to play in the Premier League next season.
