Brentford were promoted to the Premier League after beating Swansea 2-0 in the Championship Play-Off Final.

Malik Ouzia was at Wembley and here’s how he rated the Bees.

David Raya 7

Hardly had a save to make but distribution as accurate as ever. Redemption after the error which gave Fulham their opener a year ago.

Henrik Dalsgaard 8

So reliable, did not put a foot wrong. Claimed Brentford were more mature and assured than a year ago and typified that.

Pontus Jansson 6

Terrible defending almost gifted Ayew one back after the break and forced off before the end but after two near-misses, with Leeds and Brentford, is on his way to the top-flight.

Ethan Pinnock 7

His usual assured self. Was playing non-league football four years ago but has been a mountain at the back and deserves his top-flight chance.

Mads Roerslev 7

Youngster showed great energy and then composure to tee-up Marcondes’ goal. A weak-link at times this season but not today.

Vitaly Janelt 7

Brentford’s German machine has been one of the finds of the season and produced another flawless display.

Mathias Jensen 6

Fairly quiet game by his standards but will just be happy to have left the pitch in one piece after a horrible Fulton tackle.

Sergi Canos 7

Stunning pass carved Swansea open to win the penalty. A wonderful servant, this will mean more to him than most.

Emiliano Marcondes 9

Powerful low finish beat Woodman at near post and ran the show from midfield. His late-season return to form has been key to play-off success.

Bryan Mbuemo 9

Justified inclusion immediately with run in behind to win penalty, then led breakaway to double lead. His best performance of the season.

Ivan Toney 8

Cool as ever from the spot, then almost scored one of the great Play-off Final goals when rattling the bar with looping volley. Leads from the front and will have Premier League defences quaking.
