Brentford welcomed Liverpool to the Brentford Community Stadium on Sunday afternoon for their Premier League clash.
Thomas Frank’s side have been impressive in their first season back in the Premier League.
They knew, though, that Liverpool would be their biggest challenge to date.
But it was them who took the lead in the 27th minute.
And it came from a masterful set-piece routine which caught Liverpool out.
Brentford were given a free-kick in the Reds’ half. They sent their defenders forward as it looked they would lump the ball into the box.
But Christian Norgaard came short for the ball and he played a lovely ball to Sergi Canos, who got in behind Liverpool’s defence.
The Spaniard crossed to Ivan Toney, who helped the ball on for Ethan Pinnock, who converted at the back post.

What a set-peice routine that is. Liverpool were completely caught cold.
Brentford’s lead didn’t last long, though.
Jordan Henderson swung a ball into the box three minutes later and on hand to convert was Diogo Jota to level the scores.
