Newcastle United drew 1-1 at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.
Newcastle United suffered late heartbreak at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night as they could only draw 1-1 at Molineux – and fantasy football fans weren't impressed either.
Newcastle gradually grew into the game, and snatched the lead in the second half when midfielder Isaac Hayden somehow managed to beat Rui Patricio at his near post.
Newcastle were solid and composed, leaving Wolves frustrated until defender Willy Boly headed home at the back post, but it was controversial for two reasons.
The first was that Boly's goal went in well after the four minutes of added time had been played, and the second was because some felt goalkeeper Martin Dubravka had been fouled.
Dubravka wasn't really strong enough, and whilst Boly's arm may have gone into Dubravka's face, it was another instance of unsure goalkeeping by the Slovakian.
Remarkably though, Dubravka still managed to snatch one bonus point in he official Fantasy Premier League game, despite ultimately costing the Magpies two points.
Fantasy football fans have been raging with the decision, calling for an overhaul of the bonus point system and even calling the game 'finished' whilst mocking Dubravka's performance, laughing at his display.

The bonus pts system needs an algorithm designed to make sure an error like he made voids of any Bonus Pts https://t.co/InUzhAb5Gn
