# Brentford’s Loss to Everton a One-Off, Says Thomas Frank
Thomas Frank, manager of English Championship side Brentford, has said he hopes the team’s 3-1 loss to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday was a one-off.
The Bees, who are currently second in the Championship table, were beaten by a strong Everton side at Griffin Park. The Toffees opened the scoring in the first half through Richarlison, before doubling their lead after the break through Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Brentford pulled one back through Ollie Watkins, but the visitors sealed the win with a late goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Speaking after the match, Frank said he was disappointed with the result but was pleased with his team’s performance.
“I think we played well and created some good chances,” he said. “We just didn’t take them. We were up against a very good team and it was always going to be difficult. I hope this is a one-off and that we can get back to winning ways soon.”
The loss was Brentford’s first in the Premier League this season and leaves them in 13th place in the table. They will be looking to bounce back when they take on West Bromwich Albion next weekend.
## Brentford’s Performance Praised by Everton Manager Carlo Ancelotti
Despite the result, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti was full of praise for Brentford’s performance.
“Brentford played very well,” he said. “They created some good chances and put us under pressure at times. We had to work hard for the win and I’m pleased with how we responded.”
Ancelotti also praised his team’s performance, saying they had shown great character to come from behind and secure the win.
“We showed great character to come back from 1-0 down,” he said. “It wasn’t easy but we kept going and got the result we wanted.”
