A Said Benrahma-inspired performance saw Brentford come from behind to thrash Hull City 5-1 at Griffin Park.

Fraizer Campbell fired the visitors ahead after 24 minutes, rising unmarked in the box to head home Kamil Grosicki’s cross.

That sparked the Bees into life and they equalised within five minutes through Kamohelo Mokotjo after good work from Benrahma.

The Algerian winger then got his first of the afternoon, dribbling past three Tigers defenders before curling an effort into the top corner (33).

Neal Maupay then set-up Benrahma for his second as Brentford took a 3-1 lead into the interval.

Brentford then made it four early in the second-half, Maupay tapping in from close range.

And Benrahma wrapped up an excellent day for him and his side by claiming the match ball in the 81st minute – curling the ball nonchalantly into the top corner from just inside the box.
