Brentford manager Thomas Frank was full of pride after his side took part in an epic 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

The Bees scored first on Saturday night in front of a raucous Brentford Community Stadium crowd, only for the unbeaten league leaders to fight back to lead 3-2.

However, Yoane Wissa scored with eight minutes to play to ensure Frank’s team took a deserved Premier League point.

The performance was an excellent follow-up from the impressive win at Wolves, and the Carabao Cup demolition of Oldham Athletic in midweek.

Brentford’s Danish boss was proud of his team, but also admitted the game was also slightly too frantic for his liking.

“I am proud. I think we went toe-to-toe with one of the three best teams in the country at this moment in time,” Frank told Sky Sports. 

“They are one of the best teams in Europe and have proved that the last three years. I think we got a well-earned point, we were very brave throughout the game.

“Of course there were moments where Liverpool could have scored as well, but you need a little luck or quality, in terms of saves and blocks.

“I also felt we had other opportunities and I actually felt the first two goals we could have defended better. But I am very, very pleased.

“It was more open than I would have liked at times, yes. Liverpool are at their most dangerous on those counters and committing runners forward.

“But it is a difficult balance because we also want to go high and be brave, at times yes it was too open.

“The last minute summed up that both teams want to go for the win. It was 3-3 and we all know it is a massive point for us against a top team.

“But we still tried to go for the win. In general, we would like to play a bit more, but we were playing against one of the best pressing teams in Europe.”

One of the main routes to cause the former Premier League champions so many problems on Saturday came from the performance of forwards Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo.

The duo’s physicality and pace unsettled the Liverpool backline throughout the game, something that doesn’t happen every week.

Frank was once again full of praise for the pair after they both scored in the win at Wolves the previous week.

He added: “Throughout the game, it was difficult for the Liverpool defence to handle Ivan (Toney) and Bryan (Mbeumo). Bryan had a massive chance in the first half.”

“Even in the second half, because they both have pace and through Ivan’s link-up play they caused problems, they are a very good combination.

“We showed a great attitude, comfortable but humble. I wanted to make sure we were brave and also not to regret anything, don’t show too much respect against a big team.”
