Benrahma nominated for Player of the Round prize

Two goals in West London derby earns award nomination

2 October 2020

Saïd Benrahma has been nominated for the Carabao Cup Round Four Player of the Round award. Brentford's Algerian attacker scored twice last night as The Bees beat Fulham 3-0. That ensured progress to the last eight of the competition for the first time in the Club's history.

Saïd was involved in the first goal, scored by Marcus Forss, and then made it 2-0 just past the hour mark, finishing off a set piece. The third was one to savour as he memorably tricked his way past Michael Hector and scored from 25 yards. That earned him special recognition. See more below.

Saïd was also named in the Team of the Round. He was the only player to achieve a perfect ten out of ten in the WhoScored? metrics used to select the team. Defender Ethan Pinnock was also named in the line-up.
