Match Highlights 

Brentford rose to ninth in the Premier League as first-half goals from Ivan Toney and Josh Da Silva inflicted a fifth consecutive defeat on West Ham in a 2-0 win at the London Stadium.

West Ham 0-2 Brentford:

There was a poignant minute's applause for Pele prior to kick-off with the Brazilian Lucas Paqueta leading the tributes on the centre circle but the playmaker and his team-mates looked out of sorts as Brentford raced into a 2-0 half-time lead.

Toney poked the Bees ahead in the 18th minute after West Ham failed to deal with a long throw. Dasilva made it 2-0 with a composed finish with two minutes left of the half and West Ham were booed off at the break.

David Raya, in the Brentford goal, was not overly worked as a second-half rally failed to materialise meaning West Ham slip below Everton into 17th place on goal difference ahead of the weekend's remaining fixtures.

Brentford's night ended on a sour note, however, as Toney was carried off on a stretcher after appearing to jar his knee when defending a late corner.
