  • Yoane Wissa scored an acrobatic goal against Chelsea
  • Brentford were held at home by the Blues on Saturday
  • The DR Congo star has now scored five goals this season

DR Congo forward Yoane Wissa scored a beautiful bicycle goal for Brentford in their English Premier League clash against Chelsea at the Gtech Community Stadium.

The AFCON star met Frank Onyeka's miss-control in the air before acrobatically firing home to give the Bees the lead.

Nicolas Jackson had opened the scoring for Chelsea in the first half before Mads Roerslev levelled five minutes after the break.

In a video shared on social media, Wissa started the move before finishing stylishly to put Brentford in front in the 69th minute.

However, the Blues responded with seven minutes remaining after defender Axel Disasi met a Cole Palmer pass.

Wissa, who starred for DR Congo at the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, has been a key figure at the Gtech Stadium this season, netting his fifth goal of the campaign in the English Premier League.

The draw keeps Brentford six points away from the drop zone as Thomas Frank's men continue their battle for survival.

Meanwhile, the pressure mounts on Mauricio Pochettino after a difficult campaign in charge of the Blues.

Jackson scores again for Chelsea

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Nicolas Jackson extended his recent goal-scoring streak for Chelsea with a commanding header in their Premier League matchup against Brentford.

The Senegalese striker picked up right where he left off in the previous midweek fixture, propelling the Blues into the lead during the West London Derby on Saturday afternoon.

Despite facing criticism for occasional wastefulness in front of goal, Jackson has managed to tally an impressive 10 goals and three assists in 29 appearances for Chelsea this season, according to Transfermarkt.

Brentford welcomes AFCON star Onyeka

Sports Brief also reported that Brentford welcomed Frank Onyeka in style after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations as a runner-up, starring in the final against Ivory Coast.

The thrilling game, which had spectators on the edge of their seats, featured a flurry of goals, including two in the second half by midfielder, Franck Kessie, and forward, Sebastien Haller, which were enough to secure a come-from-behind victory for the tournament hosts.
