As Watford hosted Spurs this afternoon, Nathan Ake, who is on loan from Chelsea, made a pretty brutal challenge.
As ever, Twitter was on hand to mock the Watford defender’s flying leg and he suitably left his side in the lurch with the majority of the second half to play.
The foul on Erik Lamela was met with a straight red card and its unlikely that such a move of hooliganism will go down too well with the men in charge at Stamford Bridge.
I would imagine that this Fantasy football player is probably a bit disappointed that Ake will be coming off the bench for him..
If Cresswell doesn't play, I get the joys of Ake coming off the bench…

I’m not too sure that Ake was trying to help Lamela out in any way here
Nathan Ake sent off for trying to give Erik Lamela a vasectomy with his boot. Understandable.

As ever, there were more FPL fans who rejoiced.

Fortunately, there are some elements of seriousness and common sense on social media.
When Watford's fans get home and see it again, I'm not sure they'll have too much of a problem with Ake's red card. Awful tackle.

Ake seems to have learnt from the Chelsea spirit of making endless enemies..
about time someone sent Ake off. Kicking Bogdan the other day and now this. Watford are disgusting cheats.
