Premier League Football Results – Brentford Made a 2-1 Home Comeback

Among other of yesterday’s Premier League football results, Brentford made a 2-1 home comeback to beat their guests Aston Villa. Yoane Wissa had cancelled out an early Danny Ings opener for the visitors. Finally, in this Premier League football match on Sunday, Mads Roerslev scored his first goal to break the deadlock.

This 2-1 home result has lifted hosts Brentford into 12th place on 23 points from 19 games. So, as a matter of fact, they are now one point ahead of 13th-placed Villa.

After a blocked 12th-minute shot, Ings fired Villa ahead four minutes later with a crisp finish into the far corner. Emiliano Buendia put him through with a defence-splitting pass.

Then, French-born Congo forward Wissa levelled in the 42nd minute when he took the ball in his stride. And he planted an unstoppable left-footed effort past visiting goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez from the edge of the penalty area.

Buendia made an attempt from long range in the 54th minute but his shot went inches wide. Frank Onyeka also came close to scoring for the home side in the 75th minute. However, Martinez tipped his low shot on to the outside of the post.

Brentford’s second-half pressure paid off in the 83rd minute when Roerslev beat Martinez at the second attempt. He netted his own rebound after the keeper had palmed the initial shot straight back into the Danish midfielder’s path.

In the closing stages, Ings missed Villa’s final chance to salvage a draw when home keeper Alvaro Fernandez kept out his close-range effort.
