Ivan Toney scored a hat-trick while Christian Eriksen made his first start since suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, with the latter’s corner in the 32nd-minute eventually being turned in by the former.

Hat-trick hero Toney took centre stage after half-time with a cool penalty after Ben Gibson had caught Bees’ captain Pontus Jansson with a high boot and scored another spot-kick in the 58th-minute before Teemu Pukki hit a late consolation.

Frank said: “Of course, very important win. I said to the players before the game for me it was never a must-win game, I know it is easy to say after but I knew how important game was.

“Everyone did, Norwich did, we did and two things that are very important with the win is less noise and the smiles on the faces when we come in on Monday morning will be big, so that’s a massive thing. I am pleased with the players’ character, mentality and coolness in a difficult game.”

Toney’s two penalties made it 18 in a row without missing and took his overall tally for the season to 11 goals in all competitions.

“I think he was not only for the three goals but in general he top performed today,” Frank added.

“You need in a game like this that your top players perform and he did that. First one a well-worked set-piece where he was in the position he had to be and then two penalties.

“The second one he gets himself and I have said many, many times the more penalties he scores, the closer we are to the truth that he is the best penalty taker in the world with the coolness and the strategy.”

Eriksen’s influence was clear to see and he played the whole match on his full debut for the promoted side, who are now six points above the relegation zone.

Frank insisted: “It means something for Christian, he wants to do well for us and make sure we end as high as possible.
