Brentford punish wasteful Chelsea


Ethan Pinnock of Brentford scores the team's first goal during the Premier League match between Chelsea FC and Brentford FC at Stamford Bridge on October 28, 2023 in London, England.

Brentford held on for their third Premier League win of the season as goals from Ethan Pinnock and Bryan Mbeumo sank a wasteful Chelsea in the West London derby at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were largely the better side but were punished through Pinnock's thumping header from Mbeumo's wicked cross.

With Chelsea goalkeeper Robert Sanchez up the field for a late corner, Neal Maupay led a Brentford counter-attack and set up Mbeumo for the Bees' second.

Chelsea, who went closest in the first half when Noni Madueke struck the woodwork, slipped to a ninth home defeat this year thanks to some poor finishing.

Brentford keeper Mark Flekken was never truly stretched and they defended resolutely before hitting Chelsea on the break.
