Brentford's official TikTok account mocks Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez with savage post

Brentford's official TikTok account mocks Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez with savage post

Brentford took to social media.

Brentford's official TikTok account aimed a savage dig at Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez after the Premier League fixture between the two sides on Sunday.

Villa won the match 2-1 thanks to Ollie Watkins' late strike, with the result moving them up to second in the Premier League table.

Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Anfield meant that Unai Emery's side maintained that position, and the Villans are just one point behind leaders Arsenal.

The visitors had to come from behind at the Gtech Community Stadium, with Keane Lewis-Potter scoring his first Premier League goal for Brentford shortly before half time.

But Ben Mee's straight red card on 71 minutes put the Bees' position into question. Alex Moreno's equaliser and Watkins' winner secured all three points for Villa, who had the majority of the ball possession and chances over the 90 minutes.

In second half injury time, though, Villa midfielder Boubacar Kamara was shown a red card after a scuffle between Maupay and Martinez, with the French striker running into the opposition goalkeeper.

Martinez then went to ground in somewhat dramatic fashion, before returning the favour by pushing Maupay to the ground as he was approaching a free kick.

He then tried to pull Maupay back up by his shirt, which led to Kamara getting involved, with a push to the face of Yehor Yarmoliuk resulting in his red card.

After the match, Brentford's media team took to TikTok to aim a dig at Martinez over his fall to the ground, jokingly captioning a video of the incident: "All the best in your recovery, Emi!"

Despite the incident, Martinez got away with only a yellow card, while Yarmoliuk and even Villa boss Emery were also cautioned.

Maupay, who had been booked earlier on in injury time, managed to avoid a second caution - meaning perhaps he got the better of that exchange.

But the three points went to Villa, who extended their run of Premier League games without defeat to six with their 2-1 victory.
