Brentford Take The Worse Corner Kick Of The Season
This may be the worst corner kick we've ever seen.
Sorry, Said Benrahma.
The Brentford winger played it straight to a Derby County player from the set-piece.
Three swift passes later, Derby where up the other end as Harry Wilson eventually scored for Derby.

So, from being in a position to score to conceding with a few passes later. Dean Smith must have been fuming.
Benrahma's corner kick drew comparisons to THAT set-piece from Liverpool's Iago Aspas against Chelsea.
And, of course, the Spaniard was referenced. Here's reaction from Twitter:
Learning from Aspas

Seems Iago Aspas is their new corner coach. Identical to the goal Chelsea scored in THAT game

3 fucking passes, what a counter. The way Wilson skipped past that challenge in midfield made it

In fairness to Benrahma, he did create his sides first goal from a sublime corner. He curled in a delightful ball as Henrik Dalsgaard headed in.
Brentford ultimately lost 3-1 to Derby.
Benrahma, 23, joined the Championship club from France's Chateauroux in the summer and he's played in every league game this season, assisting three goals.
