While Bournemouth’s demise persisted, Brentford’s Ivan Toney and Mathias Jensen moved them up to eighth place in the Premier League. Jensen’s late goal and Toney’s penalty in the first half gave the Cherries a 2-0 victory, their sixth consecutive loss since the World Cup, all since Gary O’Neil became their permanent manager.

The hosts won their third straight Premier League match and extended their unbeaten streak to seven games, which also included victories over Liverpool and Manchester City. Only defeats to West Ham and Everton kept Bournemouth out of the relegation zone, putting Thomas Frank’s innovative team ahead of Liverpool.

Bournemouth, which has not scored in the Premier League since the start of the season after the World Cup, almost scored when Kieffer Moore received a cross from Philip Billing, but Moore’s header hit the crossbar.

When Toney, who had been out of two games with a knee injury, chased a high ball from Yoane Wissa, Brentford took the lead moments later. The decision stood, despite the fact that VAR might have noticed that Toney actually held onto the defender’s arm until they reached the box.

While Neto is flailing in the Bournemouth goal, Mathias Jensen scores Brentford’s second goal.

David Klein/Reuters Ivan Toney, who has yet to miss a penalty for Brentford, extended his unbroken streak to 21 kicks from 21 attempts. The 26-year-old’s goal, his 14th of the season and sixth in his last five games, demonstrates once more how much Brentford will miss him if the Football Association bans him for alleged betting rule violations.

Substitute Siriki Dembélé had the best chance for Bournemouth to equalize. He fought off three defenders and hit a powerful shot that David Raya saved. Jensen scored from the edge of the box after Brentford broke up the opposing end, securing yet another impressive victory.
