Leeds thrashed at Brentford

Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch was sent off as Ivan Toney struck a sensational hat-trick to earn Brentford a thrilling 5-2 home win over the Yorkshire club in the Premier League on Saturday.

Toney sent Illan Meslier the wrong way from the penalty spot to open the scoring in the 30th minute after being fouled by Luis Sinisterra and doubled Brentford’s lead with a sublime free kick from just outside the box in the 43rd.

He completed his sixth career hat-trick in stunning style in the 58th minute, rounding Meslier and floating the ball over two defenders and into an empty net from distance after the Leeds keeper was forced to charge out to clear his lines.

Sinisterra pulled a goal back for Leeds just before halftime with a fine bit of skill, but Leeds then lost their manager Marsch to a red card for arguing with the officials shortly after Toney’s third goal.

Marc Roca scored a second for the visitors in the 79th, but it was Brentford who had the last word when Bryan Mbeumo slotted home a minute later to restore the two-goal cushion before Yoane Wissa added the home side’s fifth in injury time.

The win moved Brentford up four places to seventh in the table, while Leeds dropped to ninth.
