Pervis Estupiñán own goal header after Diaby’s shot leads to Aston Villa 3-0 Brighton.
Goals from Ollie Watkins in the 14th and 21st minutes put Villa in a comfortable position mid-way through the first-half. But Brighton’s woes were worsened five minutes after the second when Estupinan comically put the ball into his own net, having tripped over a tame pass from Moussa Diaby.
Another fumed: “Estupinan single-handedly ruining my FPL week before it’s even really started,” having been left disgusted with the defender’s minus points contribution.
And it appeared even his real-life manager Roberto De Zerbi had seen enough by half-time. Estupinan was one of three players taken off at the break, giving way to Tariq Lamptey.
