1. Outrageous Sergio Reguilon own goal
I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed an own-goal shank executed with such an acute level of difficulty. To knock it into your own net from 14 yards out with an attempted volleyed clearance takes some doing.
Reguilon’s weaker right foot got it completely wrong, slicing it so badly the spin took it over the unaware Hugo Lloris. Had the Frenchman been paying attention, he might have been able to keep it out. Unfortunately Lloris was as surprised as the rest of us and reacted a split second too late.
It looked like Reguilon was on uppers from the off. The Spaniard actually started well, darting about the pitch with assertiveness and desire. He unofficially assisted on Steven Bergwijn’s goal by anticipating Villa’s outlet pass.
Reguilon wasn’t able to harness in a productive way that excessive energy. His own goal was just the start of a horrifying first half he won’t soon forget. Reguilon coughed up possession twice on Villa’s second, completely handing the game to the visitors.
Even more bizarrely, or fittingly depending on which way you look at it, Reguilon’s own goal was the 1000th scored in Premier League history. Mind-boggling stuff.
