2,102,786 Fantasy Premier League users own Benjamin Mendy, he was transferred in by 204,461 and captained by 30,584.
But, he didn't play. Mendy wasn't even included in Manchester City's match day squad.
Pep Guardiola rang the changes for City's home Premier League fixture versus Fulham by resting the French left-back whose been on on truly scintillating form, creating goals at will from the flanks.
Naturally, it left FPL managers across the country heartbroken.
Mendy has since responded in brilliant fashion. He's quote-Tweeted Fantasy Premier League, posting the following message:
So many broken hearts today :broken_heart::joy: sorry for letting you down guys https://t.co/vUIehFDqp7
