Thomas Frank was left running out of superlatives to praise his side after their 1-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Brian Mbeumo’s 20th minute strike gave the Bees bragging rights over their West London rivals at Griffin Park where they would feel they should’ve scored more.

Victory took Frank’s men above Fulham into fourth and he was left purring over his front three of Said Benrahma, Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins.

"The BMW is still running fast,” he said affectionately.

“But to single any players out after a performance like that would be unfair.

"At times, I tried to stand back and admire the football but it would have been easier if we had got the second goal.

"Tonight I will watch it after a glass of wine and agree it was magical and at times, beautiful.

"We played with intelligence using different types of press and mixing up the way we moved the ball, but I know we have another level to go to."

"It was certainly one of the best performances since I have been here, especially as we were playing a relegated Premier League side.

"I was pleased with how we outplayed them but most importantly how we outran them. I told the boys before that if we did that, we would win the game."

"Some of the football was magical, especially after a three-game week, so I have to thank my performance and medical staff as well as the players, whose attitude was outstanding."
