Southampton hit four goals past Brentford on Tuesday evening when Brentford visited the Saint Mary’s stadium in one of the rescheduled games. The second game between Everton and Leicester City was postponed.

At St. Mary’s, Southampton started like a house on fire with Jan Bednarek’s fifth-minute goal before Vitaly Janelt equalized for Brentford in the 23rd minute.

An own goal from Fernández in the 37th minute, Broja’s 49th-minute goal, and another from Adams with 20 minutes left on the clock.

After the game, Armando Broja relieved the feelings that comes with playing in the stadium while stating that the team started the match strongly.

“We started strong, it was a great goal by Jan [Bednarek] and delivery from Prowsey [James Ward-Prowse]. We started on the front foot pressing high and the boys were amazing. To play in your home stadium with the fans behind us, that gave us momentum and drive and we just kept going from there. Even after the equaliser we kept pushing.” Broja said.

The result means that Southampton sits in 11th position with 24 points from 20 matches played while Brentford are in 13th position with 23 points from 20 matches.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, it will be the EFL Cup semi-final second leg between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. The first leg ended 2-0 in favour of Thomas Tuchel’s side at Stamford Bridge.
