Brentford remain unbeaten three games into their debut Premier League season after a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa.
Both sides scored early on in an entertaining and open first half; Ivan Toney got his first Premier League goal, lashing confidently into the top corner inside the box from a recycled corner (7), before club-record signing Emi Buendia got his first Villa goal with a curled finish from the edge of the box (13).
There was a deep dive into the rule book for a disallowed Brentford goal as Vitaly Janelt stole the ball from the hands of Emiliano Martinez at a goal kick, while the visitors showed their defensive capabilities in a less eventful second half that never got going.
The draw leaves Brentford ninth with five points from three games, with Villa a point further back in 11th.
