Brentford have emerged as the surprise package in the race for promotion to the Premier League this season under the guidance of Thomas Frank.
The Bees are currently sat fourth in the Championship table, and will be hoping they can hold their nerve in the race to finish inside the top-six this term.
One player that has been key to this impressive season to date is Ollie Watkins, with the forward having netted 22 goals for the Bees in all competitions.
That achievement is even more impressive given the fact that this is Watkins’ first season as a striker, having previously operated as a winger.
Speaking in a Q&A session on his Instagram page, Watkins admitted that the most talented player at Brentford is Said Benrahma, and labelled him as ‘unstoppable’.
Benrahma has struggled with injury problems in recent years, but is starting to show his quality on a consistent basis, which will be pleasing to see for the club’s supporters.
The winger has scored ten goals and been on hand to provide eight assists for his Brentford team-mates in his 34 appearances in all competitions this season.
With recent off-the-field events calling an abrupt halt to Brentford’s promotion bid, they’ll be hoping that they can put together a positive run of form for when fixtures do return to the sporting calendar later this year.
Are these Said Benrahma statements true or false? Test your knowledge in our quiz!
What a player he is.
Benrahma has been hugely impressive in his time with Brentford, and it’s no surprise to hear that Watkins rates him highly.
He’s had a frustrating few months injured, but is certainly making up for lost time with Thomas Frank’s men this season. Brentford are certainly one of the teams to look out for in the play-offs, especially if they’re at their best.
Both Benrahma and Watkins have played a starring role in their bid for promotion this season, and that’s likely to remain the case heading into the final nine games of this year’s campaign.
