Brentford players happy winding up Everton fans after victory: We enjoyed the fireworks!

Brentford players enjoyed winding up Everton fans after victory yesterday.

The Bees were awoken at 3.30am on Saturday night as Everton fans let off fireworks outside the team hotel in Liverpool city centre.

Just like they did before the home win against Chelsea, Everton fans put on a middle of the night fireworks display in a bid to give their side the edge.

This time though the tactic didn't have the desired effect, as Rico Henry struck after a Yoane Wissa header and Seamus Coleman put the ball into his own net to see Brentford pick up all three points.

And taking to Twitter after the game, Pontus Jansson reposted a video of the fireworks and wrote: "You could at least do it [for] more than 10 seconds!"

Bees top-scorer Ivan Toney got in on the act too, and couldn't help but poke fun at the expense of the Goodison faithful.

Toney tweeted: "Lovely display from the boys but not as good as the fireworks late last night.

"Normally I'm being woke up by my son but fireworks was a new one."

Even Brentford's official Twitter account couldn't resist getting involved as they wrote: "Our fireworks were on the pitch."
