Southampton dominates Brentford in EPL win

Che Adams of Southampton gets between Vitaly Janelt and Pontus Jansson of Brentford to lift the ball over keeper Alvaro Fernandez and scores a goal to make it 4-1 during the Premier League match between Southampton and Brentford at St Mary's Stadium on January 11, 2022 in Southampton, England.


Southampton earned its biggest Premier League win of the season by beating Brentford 4-1 with the south-coast club's new owner in attendance on Tuesday.

Jan Bednarek, Armando Broja and Che Adams scored and Southampton added an own-goal from Brentford goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez in a match rescheduled from December because of a COVID-19 outbreak in the Brentford squad.

Brentford midfielder Vitaly Janelt's goal canceled out Bednarek's fifth-minute header off James Ward-Prowse's corner, but the home team went to halftime up 2-1 after the own-goal.

Southampton's English midfielder Che Adams (R) scores his team's fourth goal during the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Brentford at St Mary's Stadium in Southampton, southern England on January 11, 2022.


Southampton's win in front of new majority owner Dragan Solak moved the team to 11th place — two spots and one point above Brentford. Solak’s Sport Republic recently purchased the 80% stake that was held by Chinese businessman Gao Jisheng.

It was the first time since 2017 that Southampton scored four goals at St. Mary's stadium.

Brentford has lost three of is last four league games and visits Liverpool on Sunday.
