Brentford secured an astonishing 4-1 win at Chelsea on Saturday as Christian Eriksen scored his first Premier League goal since suffering his cardiac arrest.
The Bees stunned Stamford Bridge with a remarkable second-half turnaround, coming from behind to flip the game on its head.
There were protests outside the stadium before kick-off as hundreds of Chelsea fans gathered to make their point against a potential takeover by the Ricketts family.
When the game got underway, it was Brentford who started more brightly as Chelsea underwhelmed in the first 45.
Regardless, the two sides went in 0-0 at half-time and it wasn’t until the start of the second period that the game exploded into life.
Antonio Rudiger broke the deadlock, lashing home a long-range strike to hand Chelsea the lead on 48 minutes.
The German defender had tried time and again to hit the net from distance in the past and finally produced the goods with a marvellous effort.
However, Vitaly Janelt equalised almost immediately to draw Brentford back level.
The hosts let collective minds linger on Rudiger’s goal and the Bees capitalised to sneak through, with Janelt providing a smart finish.
By the 54th minute, the visitors had turned the game completely on its head.
Mbeumo’s rapid break caught Chelsea on the back foot and the Bees forward took full advantage of the defensive disarray to tee up a straightforward finish for Eriksen.
Then remarkably, Brentford scored again to go 3-1 on the hour mark.
Janelt tiptoed in behind the Chelsea defence again and dinked home as the away side caught their hosts out three times in quick succession, leaving Stamford Bridge in shock.
The Blues failed to reduce the deficit in the final 30 minutes and Brentford sealed a magnificent win over their London rival in the closing stages.
More calamitous defending, this time a woeful attempted clearance from Rudiger, allowed Yoane Wissa a simple goal to cement a 4-1 victory – Brentford’s first win over Chelsea since 1939.
