Brentford boss Frank: Crazy knowing Chelsea were lucky to win

Brentford boss Thomas Frank admitted frustration after their 1-0 defeat at home to Chelsea.

Ben Chilwell scored the only goal of the game.

Frank said, "It is difficult to believe we dominated Chelsea, particularly in the last 30 minutes, and they are very lucky. That is crazy. Four months ago, they won the Champions League and we got promoted through the play-offs. They dominated without creating anything in the first hour, and after we made changes we created chances. We kept them to five shots, five shots, I'm talking about Chelsea. That is impressive. I can't ask for more; if we play this game 10 times, we win nine."

On Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, Frank added: "He is a top goalkeeper, too good for us, and I said that to him. Well done to him. It is what it is, I'm very pleased.

"We are here to be assets to the Premier League and play exciting stuff and go toe to toe with the big teams. That is the third time we've shown it; of the three, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, this is the game we deserved to win most, but that is just how football is."
