Christian Norgaard has scored his first goal for Brentford after failing to score in 59 Championship appearances.

This is the adorable moment a Brentford fan burst into tears on live television last night following the club’s historic win over Arsenal.

The Bees silenced the 1,725 away fans inside the Brentford Community Stadium by pulling off a 2-0 victory to condemn Mikel Arteta‘s side to a first league defeat of the season. 

Arsenal have now gone eight games with registering a win after they were beaten in back-to-back losses by Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.  

However, some were understandably more delighted than others, as this Bees fan was caught crying in the stands.     

This video posted by Football Daily – which perfectly captures the iconic moment – has managed to exceed 3,000 retweets, and currently has more than 19,000 likes.

One Everton fan wrote in reply: “Made up for him, that’s what it’s all about.”

This Brentford fan was left in floods of tears at full-time after winning their first top-flight game for 74 years.

Another commented: “What a moment for him to witness!”

Up next, Arsenal will face Champions League winners Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium next Sunday as Arteta bids to get his disorganised campaign back on track.

The north west London derby is scheduled to take place just days before the first Carabao Cup game of the season against West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday 25 August. 

Speaking after the game, Arteta said he was ‘extremely disappointed’ but his team didn’t deserve ‘anything different’ after losing the opening game against Brentford.

“No, I’m extremely disappointed,” he told Sky Sports. “You have a lot of illusions to start the season in the best possible way, against a really good opponent with a great atmosphere in this stadium, and we lost the game. 

“I don’t think we deserved anything different because with each little things they created issues against us, they scored from a long throw, and then we didn’t have enough presence in the box with the amount of situations they created especially in the second half.

“So you don’t do that in the Premier League, you don’t win matches.”
