With four points from six games and a victory, the revamped Toffees moved up to 15th place and out of the relegation zone, while Brentford dropped to 12th with six points and is still waiting for their first home victory of the year.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank stated, “Everton deserved to win, we performed poorly.” On Wednesday, Brentford will visit Arsenal in a League Cup third-round matchup.

“We played very well in the first five games of the season, but today was a poor performance, very unlike this fantastic group of players to play like that,” the team said.

Frank claimed that his team was “simply not good enough on the ball” with their missed passes and sloppy touch, especially in the first half, and that they had lost the set-piece fight despite being prepared for it.
