Brentford midfielder Saman Ghoddos has won the Premier League's Goal of the Month award for his sumptuous strike in the Bees' 3-0 win over Burnley.

Ghoddos, who scored the third and final goal of the contest, netted just three minutes after coming on - and it was a fitting way to wrap up an impressive first home win of the campaign.

A headed clearance dropped towards Ghoddos 25 yards out and he took one touch to control the ball, before arrowing a fierce half-volley beyond James Trafford.

Talking about the goal, Ghoddos said: “Christian [Nørgaard] was doing some oversteps, he was tricking everyone, he then made a good cross, I read it well, it was kind of a good touch, and, from that point, I felt like it could be a good shot.   

“Thankfully, it was! I was just waiting for it to bounce perfectly so I could hit it.” 

He added: “That corner is always the one where I'm warming up and they always applaud me when I go over there, so I just wanted to give something back. To celebrate with them at that corner was my plan.”   

Ghoddos's team-mate Bryan Mbeumo was also nominated for the award for his curling effort in the same game.

Both players watched their goals back together, before the Iran international was presented with the award.

“I said that if I won, I’d give it to Bryan," said Ghoddos. "But now that I’ve won it, I don’t want to! 

“I just want to thank everybody that's been voting for both of us. I think both goals were very good and both of us could have won. I'm really happy.”
