‘Why would anyone want to leave Brentford?’

Those were the words of Brentford boss Thomas Frank as speculation that his star men moving from Griffin Park would undoubtedly grow after another electrifying display from the side’s potent front three, labelled the ‘BMW.’

Said Benrahma, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins were in dazzling form as a Watkins brace and an Mbeumo strike eased the Bees past Steve Cooper’s Swansea City side 3-1 and up to third in the league.

Despite rumoured interest from Aston Villa in Benrahma and Crystal Palace keeping tabs on Watkins, Frank feels that Brentford are only heading one way and they have the capabilty of matching his players ambitions.

"I can't understand why anyone would want to leave Brentford right now,” the Dane said.

"We are in a good place, playing attractive football and they are all in a very good place in terms of their football and their lives here, they are all enjoying themselves."

Watkins’s double took his total to 15 for the season, three behind Fulham’s Aleksander Mitrovic, while Mbeumo’s effort took his impressive return to five in his last six matches.

"There is more to come from them because as a front three they are just getting better and better and for me that is frightening.

“I'm sure we will see Said get even better in the second half of the season."

Andre Ayew pulled a goal back for the visitors at Griffin Park which made for a ‘tricky situation according to Frank, but the manager praised his side’s doggedness to see out the win.

"When they got the goal back we had to show the defensive side of our game but everyone in the side, even our front three, defended well and it saw us through."

Swansea’s boss Cooper was the polar-opposite to Frank.

Making no excuses about losing key defender Mike van Der Hoorn in the warm-up, the visiting manager hailed Brentford’s attacking trio as “one of the best in the division,” but lambasted his side who dropped to eighth.

"We looked short in the first half and didn't do the basics well enough in terms of getting to the ball and putting pressure on Brentford.

"They were two soft goals, one from a set piece, but we only have ourselves to blame."

Brentford travel to Millwall on Sunday.
