Brentford pulled off a shock win over Liverpool in the Premier League at the Community Stadium on Monday, beating the Reds for the first time since 1938.

An own goal from Ibrahim Konate and a 42nd minute strike from Yoane Wissa put Brentford two up, while Liverpool had a Darwin Nunez goal ruled out just before half-time after a VAR review.

Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain pulled one back for Jurgen Klopp's side shortly after the restart, but Bryan Mbeumo scored a third for Brentford, who recorded a historic win that moved them up to seventh in the table on 26 points from 18 games.

Liverpool, meanwhile, ended the day two points ahead of Brentford in sixth place, but 15 adrift of first-place Arsenal in the Premier League.
