Brentford scored two goals within 61 seconds to defeat Southampton 3-0 on Saturday and retain a spot in Premier League next season.

The Bees who returned to the top flight of English football will stay another year after co-qualifiers Norwich and Watford returned back to EFL Championship.

Brentford captain Pontus Jansson opened the scoring in the 14th minute when he prodded home after Ivan Toney diverted a Christian Eriksen corner in the defender's direction.

Yoane Wissa then added the second by curling a shot past goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Kristoffer Ajer sealed the win for the hosts in the second half, shuffling past a Saints defender before coolly slotting under Forster’s legs.

The result left Brentford 12th in the standings with 43 points, while Southampton are 15th with 40.

Southampton had 60% of the possession but struggled to make any chances count. They came closest when Adam Armstrong fired into the back of the net in the first half but was denied the goal for straying offside.

The visitors’ underwhelming performance was met by chants of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” and “you don’t know what you’re doing” which echoed from the away end as Saints fans turned on their manager Ralph Hassenhuetl towards the end of the game.
