Extended Highlights: West Ham United 1-2 Brentford

 

Brentford’s Yoane Wissa scored with virtually the last kick of the game to inflict an unfortunate 2-1 defeat on West Ham United at London Stadium.

A fiercely contested London derby – the first-ever top-flight meeting between these two sides, and their first competitive fixture since April 1993 – saw the visitors start the brighter and open the scoring with a quarter of the game gone, Bryan Mbeumo sliding in after Lukasz Fabianski had tipped Sergi Canos’ initial effort away from goal.

Although Mbeumo’s effort initially appeared to have also been saved by Fabianski, the Goal Decision System judged the whole of the ball to have crossed the whole of the line, and Brentford - at that point - deservedly led.

West Ham grew into the game, however, and after missing a series of clear opportunities at the start of the second half, deservedly equalised when Jarrod Bowen slammed home a crisp low volley with ten minutes to go.

There only looked to be one winner from thereon out, but a late lapse of concentration saw Wissa slam home a bouncing volley in the fourth minute of injury time after Fabianski saved a header from Pontus Jansson – the last kick of the game snatching all three points for Brentford.
