The Spaniard has been a huge hit this season at Griffin Park during his first season in consistent first team action, showing his undoubted ability in the competitive Championship division.
And for the second time in as many weeks, the Spain Under-19 international gave an impressive demonstration of his talents, finding the net and registering a set-up in a 5-1 thrashing of Huddersfield.
Lining up in his familiar right side role, Canos opened the scoring after just 20 seconds of the contest when he latched onto a sloppy back pass and slotted home through the ‘keepers legs with the outside of his boot.
The instant finish demonstrated the teenager’s composure and eye for goal, and it provided the catalyst for another excellent afternoon for Dean Smith’s side, and Canos, who later turned provider.
With his side 3-1 to the good, the Reds loanee played a huge part in extending the lead further.
After some strong pressing saw him win possession on the touchline, he drove forward before playing a delightful through-pass with the outside of his foot, releasing teammate Lasse Vibe on goal with the striker making no mistake when one-on-one.
The set-up proved to be the final contribution in a Brentford shirt for Canos, who was withdrawn two minutes later to a rapturous reception from the travelling Bees fans.

Signing off with a goal and assist brought a fitting end to a brilliant season, in which the youngster netted seven goals and recorded four assists, and he expressed his gratitude on his Twitter account after his farewell display.
Canos will hope such an impressive impact on his debut campaign in the professional game earns him the chance to fight for a place in Jurgen Klopp’s squad for next season.
He recently told LFCTV’s Academy Show “I want to show Klopp that I’m ready to play for Liverpool” before revealing his “dream” is to receive a post-match trademark hug from the Reds boss.
Being on the end of a bear-hug from Klopp may not be far away if he can build on a fantastic season with Brentford.
