EPL: Frank names ‘man of the match’ after Brentford’s 2-0 win over Arsenal.. Brentford manager, Thomas Frank, has named the club’s fans as his ‘man of the match’ following their 2-0 victory over Arsenal in the Premier League on Friday night.
Goals from Sergi Canos and Christian Norgaard against Arsenal gave the Premier League newcomers their first three points of the season.
Speaking to BBC after the game, Frank said: “I think we top-performed, but there must be a level above that. The fans were absolutely amazing.
“That was more than a 10/10 performance in terms of atmosphere. Constant singing. Amazing.
“I know after the play-off final, there were a lot of proud people, a lot of tears. It’s been a long journey.
“I thought we deserved the win. What I liked was how brave we were, pressing high and trying to play.
“If there was only one man of the match, it’s the fans. I can’t name one of the team, they were all top.”
Brentford’s next Premier League game is against Crystal Palace on August 21.
