Meslier personal purpose Wolves vs Leeds United
You always expect something strange when you see a goalkeeper score an own goal, but that’s terribly lucky for Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier.
It’s an absolute blast from the Wolves player and that deserves a goal, but it hits off the post and bounces back from the dive warden before he can even figure out what happened:

A thunderous shot from Adama Traore ricochets off the crossbar and Illan Meslier?

It also turns out that Meslier now owns one of the stranger and undesirable records in the Premier League even after the own goal:
20 – Illan Meslier (20y 354d) is the youngest goalkeeper to score an own goal in the Premier League in the history of the competition. Unhappy. #WOLLEE
