  • Mohammed Kudus has scored again for West Ham United
  • The Ghana international netted a beautiful bicycle kick goal against Brentford
  • Kudus was on target in midweek in the match against Arsenal

Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus scored an acrobatic goal for West Ham United in their Premier League game against Brentford at the GTech Community Park.

Kudus' strike cancelled an early opener from Neal Maupay before the Hammers went on to take lead through Jarrod Bowen in the first-half.

The 23-year-old was making only his third start in the Premier League since joining the Hammers in the summer transfer window from Ajax.

In a video shared on social media, Kudus spectacularly volleyed home with a bicycle kick from a Michail Antonio cross.

Kudus came close to adding to his tally after his effort struck the post before Bowen rolled it in for West Ham. The former Ajax midfielder also started an attack which saw Antonio make the miss of the season after he spotted Bowen who laid it on for the Jamaican.

In an explosive start to the game, it was the host who broke the deadlock just 11 minutes into the game following a fine finish from Maupay.

Kudus then equalized eight minutes later with a sensational goal before Bowen netted five minutes later to hand Wes Ham the lead.

Kudus scores as West Ham beat Arsenal

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus scored as West Ham defeated Arsenal in the Carabao Cup game at the London Olympic Stadium.

The 23-year-old expertly controlled a long pass from Nayef Aguerd which beat Arsenal defender Oleksandr Zinchenko before he cooly slotted home for the Hammers' second of the night.

Ben White gave the host an early lead after netting an own goal in the 16th minute.

Young West Ham fan praises Kudus

Sports Brief also reported that a popular young West Ham fan Abel Farey praised Mohammed Kudus' performance in the victory against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The Ghana international scored an exquisite goal as the Hammers dumped Arsenal out of the Carabao Cup with a 3-1 win at the London Olympic Stadium.

Farey, who became an internet sensation during West Ham's European campaign last season, was at the Stadium to support his beloved club.
