Bryan Mbeumo's opening goalBrentford are the first Premier League newcomers since Hull to be unbeaten after four away games

Yoane Wissa scored an added-time winner as Brentford maintained their fine start to life in the Premier League with a dramatic London derby win at West Ham United.

Wissa, who got a late equaliser against Liverpool eight days ago, drove in a powerful shot with virtually the last kick of the game after the Hammers had failed to clear a set piece.

For long periods Bryan Mbeumo's early goal had looked likely to be decisive for the Bees, who move up to seventh in the table after leapfrogging their opponents, who now sit ninth.

Thomas Frank's side more than merited their lead, with French forward Mbeumo sweeping in from close range after Sergi Canos' effort was parried by home goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

That came during a spell in which the visitors held sway, combining an aerial threat and some slick football that carved the hosts open on several occasions.

However, Brentford appeared to run out of steam in the second half and were forced to dig deep to repel a West Ham onslaught.

Jarrod Bowen eventually got an equaliser for the hosts with a driven effort into the bottom right corner - but Wissa's late strike took the points for the visitors.
