Brentford manager Thomas Frank has praised his “incredible” players after their impressive win over Liverpool.
The bees won 3-1 at the Community Stadium to extend their Premier League unbeaten run to six matches.
Frank and his players celebrated with their full-time supporters as the win lifted Brentford to seventh in the table.
“What a night! Can’t say enough good things about the players, they’re amazing,” Frank told BBC Sport.
“The attitude, the effort, the hard work and the togetherness – everything they put in place to beat a team like Liverpool.”
Brentford’s first goal came when Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate deflected a corner into his own net after 19 minutes.
Liverpool conceded twice more from corners in the first half, but both goals were ruled out for offside, before Yoane Wissa eventually made it 2-0.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain collected one for Liverpool after the break and then Bryan Mbeumo scored a third for the hosts late to confirm victory after Darwin Nunez also had a goal ruled out for offside.
“Crazy, crazy. Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world so if you want to beat them you have to be 200%. Hope the fans enjoyed it,” Wissa told Sky Sports.
“We worked so hard together. We played together and that’s why we did this. Now we know how the Premier League is, so we have to be humble and stick together.
“I could have scored a hat-trick today. I scored twice, offside, then I put one in so it’s good. Everyone is happy.”
Brentford’s victory came despite key striker and top scorer Ivan Toney being unavailable after suffering a knee injury during the win against West Ham.
Mbeumo told BBC Sport: “It was an amazing feeling. We knew against Liverpool here it was a massive win. We wanted to do more than last time. [the 3-3 result last season].
“The mindset that we always have to go for it means a lot to us and that’s one of the things that made us score a lot of goals.”
“We have to celebrate and enjoy the moment”
Brentford have lost just one of their nine home Premier League games this season, to league leaders Arsenal.
Outcomes at the community stage include a 4-0 win over Manchester United in August, a goalless draw with Chelsea in October and a 2-2 draw with Tottenham in December.
They too beat champions Manchester City in an impressive display at the Etihad Stadium in November and have never lost a Premier League game in which they opened the scoring.
“It’s just impressive that we beat Manchester City, drew with Tottenham when we should have won, beat West Ham and now beat Liverpool,” Frank said.
“We’ve been very consistent with what we’ve tried to do. Then it’s about the very important discipline of the players – they work very hard and want to do that extra yard for each other.
“It’s amazing to be seventh. If you see the series of games we’ve been through, it’s very impressive.
“We have to celebrate and enjoy the moment, but then we have to be at our best to beat West Ham in the FA Cup on Saturday.”
