It was a busy night in the Premier League in London where Brentford left it late to secure maximum points against fellow newly promoted side Watford.

The Bees came into the game without the services of forward Ivan Toney who was out due to testing positive to Covid-19. The Englishman had earlier missed their last game away at Leeds where a late Patrick Bamford goal denied them all three points.

Watford took the lead through Nigerian striker Emmanuel Dennis who scored from a brilliant header.

In the second half Brentford defender Pontus Jansson met a flicked on header at the back post to equalise for his side.

The London outfit won all three points as late as the 95th minute after Bryan Mbuemo netted his penalty with composure.

The fixture also had two other Nigerians on the pitch as William Troost-Ekong lined up for Watford and Frank Onyeka donned the colours of Brighton.

The win places Brentford ninth with 20 points level with Brighton but are above the Seagulls with goals difference while Watford’s poor run continues as the loss is their fourth in succession.

Emmanuel Dennis has scored Seven goals and provided Five assists in the Premier League and the former Brugge man was recently nominated for Premier League player of the montht in November.
