BRENTFORD skipper Pontus Jansson hilariously trolled Everton fans after the Bees came twice from behind to beat Everton 3-2.
Thomas Frank’s side took three points at Goodison Park despite feeling a little overtired.
The bees were roused at 3.30am on Saturday night when Everton fans set off fireworks outside the team hotel in Liverpool city centre.
Just like before the home win against Chelsea, Everton fans put on fireworks in the middle of the night to give their side an advantage.
This time, however, the tactic didn’t have the desired effect as Rico Henry found Yoane Wissa’s header and Seamus Coleman put the ball into his own net to see Brentford take all three points.
And Jansson posted a video of the fireworks on Twitter after the game, writing: “They could at least do it [for] more than 10 seconds!”
Bees top scorer Ivan Toney also chimed in and couldn’t help but poke fun at the expense of the Goodison loyalists.
Toney tweeted: “Nice show from the boys but not as good as the fireworks last night.
“I’m usually woken up by my son, but fireworks were new.”
Even Brentford’s official Twitter account couldn’t resist getting involved, as they wrote: “Our fireworks were on the pitch.”

Bees stars Toney and Henry explained after the game that their families faced heinous racist attacks.
Everton have already condemned the alleged abuse and said they are working with Merseyside Police to identify individuals.
Frank Lampard’s side missed a chance to guarantee Premier League safety with a home win over the west Londoners.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin had made a perfect start but Jarrad Branthwaite’s red card changed the game and Richarlison’s first-half penalty went wide.
Salomon Rondon compounded the misery when he was shown a red card in the closing stages as Everton finished the game with nine men.
The Toffees are now two points clear of the drop zone with two games left.
Brentford, meanwhile, are enjoying a superb first season in the big time and head into the final game of the season next week against Leeds with a chance of securing a place in the first half of the Premier League.
