Brentford’s streak is maintained with a dramatic Palace draw
With a last-second equalizer against Crystal Palace, Brentford extended their stunning unblemished Premier League streak.
After Vitaly Janelt’s injury-time header denied Crystal Palace victory, the Bees are currently 11 games without a loss in the Premier League.
Janelt connected with Bryan Mbeumo’s cross to excite the home crowd far into stoppage time.
With his fourth goal of the year, substitute Eberechi Eze had given Palace the lead after beating Ethan Pinnock at the back post to finish Michael Olise’s cross.
In a cagey encounter with few clear-cut opportunities, chances were few.
As his half-volley was struck into Vicente Guaita’s midriff shortly before the hour mark, Brentford captain Christian Norgaard had their greatest opportunity.

Janelt has scored all three of Brentford’s goals this season at home and in games that ended in draws.
With Crystal Palace poised to secure a significant victory, this game will seem the most crucial.
Since October 29, Brentford has gone undefeated in the league, and they have hopes of making it to Europe.
Nonetheless, the home team wasn’t at its best, and Norgaard had a few chances to score, including a shot that went just wide of the goal, a glanced header from a corner kick, and a half-volley that Guaita stopped.
Palace is yet to record a victory this year.
In 2023, Crystal Palace played seven Premier League games, losing three and drawing four. They failed to win any of the games.
In this case, substitute Eze connected with Olise’s cross to put Patrick Vieira’s team just seconds away from a crucial victory.
Since Wilfried Zaha, Palace’s star, is still out injured, they were lacking in creativity, as Jean-Philippe Mateta headed over a Jordan Ayew cross.
While Palace unable to capitalize on their opportunities, the home team’s goalkeeper David Raya deflected an Olise shot over the crossbar, prolonging their quest for their first victory since New Year’s Eve.
