First touches can be deceiving…
Brentford looked certain to lose playmaker Said Benrahma after their failed promotion bid last season, but no, they held on to him and what a move – or lack of it – that might turn out to be. Here he is, casually ending the career of Fulham defender Michael Hector… and possibly Fulham’s Scott Parker too; who honestly can see the Cottagers finishing this season with Parker in charge?
54 – Since making his Brentford debut in August 2018, Saïd Benrahma has been directly involved in 54 goals in all competitions (29 goals & 25 assists), more than any other player for the Bees. Catalyst.#CarabaoCup pic.twitter.com/gvsmGVcaun

Benrahma’s effort wasn’t the only neat piece of technique spotted on Thursday evening:
