Brentford recorded its first historic win over Liverpool since 1938

An own goal from Ibrahima Konate, along with goals from Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbeumo, helped Brentford win 3-1 to add another spectacular chapter to their Premier League saga. This was the team’s first victory over Liverpool since 1938.

Inadvertently putting the ball into his own net for the game’s first goal (19), Konate suffered the same fate as Leicester’s Wout Faes on Friday night. Wissa then duly doubled the hosts’ advantage off a cross from Mathias Jensen (42).

Following a spectacular triple substitution from Jurgen Klopp in which Virgil van Dijk was removed, which caused a change in shape and momentary change in fortune, Liverpool sprang into action after the interval.

Trent Alexander-precise Arnold’s delivery was met by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, giving his Reds career new life, who flicked a header beyond David Raya (50), but Brentford held off the rest of Liverpool’s haphazard pressure, putting an end to any chance of an unlikely comeback.

Seven minutes from time, Mbeumo added the finishing touches to a historic victory by forcing Konate, who was weak on the ball, off the ball before sidefooting past Alisson with ease.

The Reds passed up the opportunity to get closer to the Champions League berths and are currently four points behind Manchester United in fourth place, while tenacious Brentford ascend to a lofty seventh place and fall two points short of their Merseyside rivals
