Eriksen helps Brentford to first win at Chelsea since 1939

Three quickfire goals including Christian Eriksen’s first in the Premier League since 2019 helped Brentford stun Chelsea 4-1 for their first victory at Stamford Bridge since the 1930s.

Chelsea took the lead on 48 minutes with a stunning strike from Antonio Rudiger, who smashed in from 35 yards.

But Brentford replied only 100 seconds later as Vitaly Janelt drilled in a shot from the edge of the area.

The visitors went in front after 54 minutes as Eriksen tucked in Bryan Mbeumo’s cross from close range following a counter-attack.

Janelt dinked Ivan Toney’s through-ball over Edouard Mendy to score his second on the hour before substitute Yoane Wissa added a fourth with three minutes remaining.

Brentford climb to 14th with 33 points after a third win in four matches.

A first defeat in seven leaves third-placed Chelsea on 59 points.
