Brentford Player Ratings

Daniel Bentley (8/10)

The goalkeeper continued his dominant presence in goal, making a number of vital saves to keep the Villans at bay.

Henrik Dalsgaard (6/10)

Dalsgaard was impressive with his defensive work but failed to provide accurate crosses while pushing forward.

Konsa Ngoyo (6/10)

The youngster did his best to stop Jonathan Kodja but clearly failed in doing so. He was handed a tough afternoon by the striker.

Chris Mepham (7/10)

Mepham, on the other hand, had a more positive game in terms of defensive contribution and work rate.

Yoann Barbet (8/10)

The Frenchman bombed forward from the left flank and whipped in crosses for the attackers. His supply posed a huge threat to the Villans.

Lewis Macleod (8/10)

Macleod played a number of sublime balls for Neal Maupay but the striker was unable to convert. His passing in the final third was impressive.

Josh McEachran (6/10)

The 25-year-old didn’t start the game well and conceded a number of fouls in dangerous positions.

Sergi Canos (7/10)

Canos was unable to add to his goal tally in this game but came close a number of times. The Spaniard caused all sorts of problems for the Villa defenders.

Romaine Sawyers (8/10)

Sawyer’s creative nous and vision played a huge role for Brentford going forward. The attacking midfielder was spot on with his passing in the final third.

Ollie Watkins (7/10)

Picked up the assist for the first goal and came close to assisting a few others as well. The 22-year-old’s pace was devastating too.

Neil Maupay (9/10)

It was an all-round performance from Brentford striker as he scored a brace to take his tally to 5 for the season.


Kamohelo Mokotjo (6/10)

The African was brought on to bring some energy and stability in the middle of the park.

Nicholas Yennaris (7/10)

Yennaris came in place of Josh McEachran and played a neat game. The 25-year-old did well to track back as well.

Said Benrahma (5/10)

The attacker was brought on to trouble the Villa defence with his fresh legs and pace in the final third. As expected, he posed a few problems for the opposition.
