Brentford stun West Ham as Wissa strikes late

Yoane Wissa scored a dramatic late winner for Brentford as they beat West Ham 2-1 and continued their impressive start to Premier League life.

It was hard to know who were the newly-promoted side and who were playing in Europe as Brentford pummelled West Ham in the first half, grabbing a deserved lead when Bryan Mbeumo’s strike was awarded by the goal-line technology on 20 minutes.

West Ham responded after the break and Jarrod Bowen’s pure, half-volleyed finished drew them level with 10 minutes remaining.

An assault on the Bees’ goal was expected but, led by Pontus Jansson, the visitors managed the situation and created one last chance for themselves when Jansson’s header was saved and the rebound was brilliantly hammered home by Wissa.

The win means Brentford head into the international break with 12 points from seven games which sees them in seventh place. Meanwhile, West Ham have now lost four of their last seven Premier League home games but sit ninth in the league.
