One FPL user TRIPLE CAPTAINED Wout Faes against Liverpool, scored two own goals

Someone inexplicably TRIPLE CAPTAINED Leicester City defender Wout Faes against Liverpool on Fantasy Premier League.
Faes scored not one but TWO own goals in his side's 2-1 defeat at Anfield on Friday.
The Foxes had opened the scoring when Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall ran through on goal to slot home.
But Liverpool hit back with two goals just before the break courtesy of Faes, who converted into his own net TWICE.
The Belgium defender completely fluffed his clearance from a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross, looping the ball into the back of the net.
He then failed to clear the ball when Darwin Nunez hit the post, finding the goal once again from close range.
If you think Faes had a bad night, then think of the FPL manager who tripled captained the 24-year-old, who cost the user -12 points.
@OfficialFPL took to social media to reveal that one user had made the outrageous decision.
"40 #FPL managers captained Wout Faes," they tweeted.
"1 manager triple captained the Leicester defender."
Needless to say, Faes being triple captain against Liverpool got FPL fans online talking.
One tweeted: "On the Faes of it, it was a really bad idea..."
A second joked: "Just remember this whenever you have a bad gameweek."
A third added: "To have him in the line up is already strange. And to triple captain is absolutely outrageous."
A fourth said: "Why would you do this in the first place."
Another commented: "Damn, I thought I was bad at this game."
Despite his horror show, Brendan Rodgers has no doubt Faes will recover from his disastrous showing against Liverpool.
"It is obviously disappointing for him but he is a really strong character," he said.
"He has been really good for us since he arrived from Reims.
"He was away at the World Cup and didn’t play a minute so it will take him a few games to get his rhythm back.
He has shown the level he can get to.
"Tonight he was just unfortunate but I thought he responded brilliantly in the second half."
