Then, Mbeumo, coming from the position for Covid-19 to hit Ivan Toney, kept his composure to ensure a memorable victory.

Dennis seemed to have breathed life into Watford’s fight for survival with his first-half header, but the Bees were back to set fire to the Hornets.

Watford boss Claudio Ranieri had foretold that this game was where their season would really begin after a brutal series of games, but it has now been four salivating losses for the Italians.

Brentford, also without defender Ethan Pinnock through Covid-19, dominated the opening period and Shandon Baptiste’s early volley was sent over the bar by Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.

Midway through the first half, Mbeumo chased Baptiste’s ball on the right, cut in from William Ekong and hit a seemingly fated shot into the far corner until Bachmann unleashed a handball to hit the far corner of the goal.

However, that seemed to stir the Hornets, and when Brentford sent the ball wide halfway across the goal line, it found Joshua King, who came in from the left and sent a low shot into the far corner.

The loose ball was cleared from a corner and from Tom Cleverley’s pass, Dennis darted ahead of Bees captain Jansson to nod home.

Dennis could have had a second after that but missed a header after Moussa Sissoko’s cross.

Brentford nearly equalized before half-time but Charlie Goode’s header from Vitaly Janelt’s corner sent the ball over the bar.

After the break, Mbeumo should have done better with a header from Mads Roerslev’s cross, while Rico Henry’s follow-up was saved by Kiko Femenia.

Bachmann came to Watford’s rescue again with 15 minutes left with a Christian Norgaard save, before Alvaro Fernandez blocked King’s shot from the other end.

But the Bees pushed themselves ahead with six minutes left when Jansson headed for Janelt’s cross.

And in the 5th minute of injury time, Bees substitute Saman Ghoddos let Ekong slip and was knocked down by defender Hornets.

According to Brentford boss Thomas Frank, Toney may be ‘the best free-kick in the world’, but Mbeumo was clearly paying attention, mimicking a run from his absent team-mate and taking a corner kick. table.
