Toney and Eriksen in Team of the Month

Bees duo make April's selection

8 May 2022

Ivan Toney and Christian Eriksen's form during our unbeaten April has seen the duo earn a spot in the Team of the Month. 

The pair were instrumental for Thomas Frank as we picked up ten points from our four games during the month. Both were heavily involved as we began April with a 4-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge; Christian scoring his first Brentford goal while Ivan chipped in with an assist. 

A week later and Ivan set up one, and scored the other, as we completed the double over West Ham United with a 2-0 victory at the Brentford Community Stadium. At Vicarage Road, it was Christian's delicious injury-time free-kick which Pontus Jansson powered home for our winner over The Hornets. 

Both players then played the full 90 minutes, as they had done over the previous three games during the month, as we held Tottenham Hotspur to a 0-0 draw on home soil. 

Including them in their team, wrote:

Christian Eriksen

11 key passes was the fifth best return in the Premier League in April with Christian Eriksen completing the midfield having garnered a WhoScored rating of 7.89. One goal and one assist contributed towards the Dane's selection alongside De Bruyne and Guimaraes in the middle of the park

Ivan Toney

Ivan Toney had a direct hand in three goals in April, scoring twice, as he spearheads the charge in the Premier League team of the month. The Brenford was again impressive in the air as he won the third most aerial duels (19) of strikers to make the cut with a WhoScored rating of 7.62.
