Brentford overcame West Ham by coming from behind to win the London derby for the second time in as many weeks.
In an exciting match played at the Gtech Community Stadium, the Hammers led at the break after falling behind early on, only for the Bees to come back and win their fifth straight Premier League game overall.
Neal Maupay of Brentford broke a 14-month goal drought in the 11th minute when he opened the score. However, the lead was short lived as Mohammed Kudus of West Ham scored an incredible volley with his back to goal eight minutes later.
After a lengthy VAR check for a handball, Kudus saw another attempt go off the post and Jarrod Bowen finished to make it 2-1. However, Brentford equalized in the second half when Konstantinos Mavropanos headed a cross into his own net.
The hosts were significantly superior in the second half and doubled their lead when Nathan Collins, a club record signing, scored with a powerful header to seal the victory and move Thomas Frank’s team up to ninth place. West Ham is ranked eleventh.
