Brentford star copies ‘genius’ throw-in technique against Chelsea after footballer goes viral with new method

BRENTFORD’s set-pieces have been a dangerous weapon ever since their promotion to the Premier League last year.

And the Bees wreaked havoc at times on Wednesday night against Chelsea as they slung the ball into the box.

A Norwegian lower league player went viral with an innovative new technique

Midfielder Mathias Jensen has been tasked with launching the ball into the area when Brentford have won throw-ins high up the pitch this season.

Last night’s hard-fought 0-0 draw against Chelsea was no different.

During the game Jensen, 26, appeared to copy a “genius” technique that recently went viral.

A clip of a Norwegian lower league player crouching down while taking a throw captured the imagination of punters across the globe.

It saw them release the ball closer to the height of their team-mate’s foot, which seemed to make the ball easier to control.

And Jensen appeared to do the same during last night’s fixture.

The Danish midfielder was captured just before the break using a similar crouched-style throw-in by the Amazon Prime TV cameras.

However, Jensen seemingly crouched down in order to generate more power on his throw to fire it to down the line to Bryan Mbeumo.

He also used a similar style to find Mbeumo’s feet just before the hour mark.

Although Jensen did use a more regulation throw-in technique throughout the rest of the game.

But, despite the innovative method, it was not enough to help Brentford break the deadlock.

Chelsea remain unbeaten after seven games under Graham Potter in all competition, keeping five clean sheets in the process.

The Blues are fourth in the league after Wednesday night’s stalemate, seven points off leaders Arsenal.

Brentford meanwhile remain comfortably in mid-table, having lost just three out of 11 Premier League this season.
