Christian Eriksen’s fairytale week continued as he scored in Brentford’s 4-1 victory over Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

On March 26, Eriksen made his first appearance for Denmark since he suffered a cardiac arrest last summer at Euro 2020.

The 30-year-old was named on the bench for his side’s friendly against The Netherlands.

He came on at half-time and, incredibly, he managed to score two minutes after coming on.

A few days later, on March 29, he started and was named captain for Denmark’s friendly against Serbia in Copenhagen.

He scored his side’s third goal as Denmark won 3-0.

And he scored his third goal in a week as Brentford shocked Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their Premier League on Saturday.

The Blues took the lead in the 47th minute courtesy of Antonio Rudiger’s 35-yard screamer.

Brentford drew level two minutes later through Vitaly Janelt.

In the 54th minute, Eriksen scored his first goal for Brentford to give his side the lead.

Brentford broke with Bryan Mbeumo and the winger found Eriksen in the box. The Dane then made no mistake from close-range to five his side the lead.

And Brentford made it 3-1 shortly after as Janelt scored his second of the game on the hour-mark.

Chelsea had 30 minutes to get back in the game but they were left frustrated in their attempts to break Brentford down.

And it was Brentford who completed the scoring in the 87th minute.

Chelsea produced some very poor defending and Yoane Wissa capitalised to make it 4-1 to Brentford.

What an incredible week it has been for Eriksen. He is now back to his best and performing at an extremely high level again.

And what a result for Brentford. That was their first victory over Chelsea since 1939.

They are now 11 points clear of their relegation zone and have virtually secured their Premier League status for at least another season.
