Jarrod Bowen thought he had scrambled West Ham a draw with a low finish for his first goal in 15 league games in the 80th minute, canceling out Bryan Mbeumo's 20th minute-opener for Brentford.

But then Lukasz Fabianski parried Pontus Jansson's header from Mathias Jensen's whipped free kick, and Wissa rushed onto the ball to clinch the win.

Brentford moved up to seventh in its first season in the Premier League with 12 points from seven games. West Ham has 11 points.
