Leicester City defender Wout Faes presents Liverpool with two own goals, fans demand FA Investigation

On a cold, rainy night at Anfield, the Belgian Wout Faes scored two bizarre own goals to add to Leicester City’s misery in a Premier League match that Liverpool won 2-1.

Jordan Henderson’s error in the fourth minute presented Dewsbury Hall with a golden opportunity, which he capitalized on to give the lead to the visitors.

After an early setback, Liverpool was rusty in the passage of play with numerous misplaced passes, and Leicester made their lives much more difficult with disciplined defending and compactness up until the 38th minute when Faes put the ball into his own net after a cross came from Trent Alexander Arnold which appeared to be safely reaching to the gloves of Danny Ward.

After a few minutes, lighting strikes twice as a result of Darwin Nunez’s dink over Ward’s head that hit the post and then Faes, who put the ball straight into his empty net. Leicester lost all momentum as a result of the specific error.


Faes became only the fourth player in Premier League era to score two own goals, such an awful record to hold.

The scenario at Anfield Stadium was pretty rampant, and the players were upset after giving up two goals they could have easily prevented. In the end, the 2-1 final score cost them three points.

Fans react to Wout Faes embarrassment

When they saw what Faes was doing, Leicester supporters all over the world were in shock simply because of the fact that it is so unusual for a professional footballer to make such errors twice, and they demand explanations for the circumstance.

Some fans were vocal about a FA investigation as they couldn’t believe what they have seen.

Liverpool will be pleased with the performance Faes displayed, but there won’t be any feast when they reflect on their own performance because they missed some wonderful opportunities. Salah, Nunez, and Oxlade Chamberlain all had great chances to end the game a long way before the final whistle, but they all failed to capitalize off them.
