Reiss Nelson Rewards Two FPL Managers Who Were Bold Enough To Pick Him

Reiss Nelson Rewards Two FPL Managers Who Were Bold Enough To Pick Him

Arsenal continued their impressive reign at the top of the Premier League by picking up another 3 points against Nottingham Forest.

Forest travelled to the Emirates in hopes of springing up another surprise as they did against Liverpool.

The Gunners made sure to squash those ambitions quickly, with Gabriel Martinelli finding the opener within the first 5 minutes of the game.

Providing the Brazilian with an assist was Bukayo Saka, who soon had to be taken off due to injury.

In the England International’s place came Reiss Nelson for his first Premier League appearance of the season.

Despite losing their talisman in Saka, Arsenal continued to dominate proceedings with Nelson deputizing effectively.

The 22-year-old went on to score Arsenal’s second goal, after converting a rebound from Dean Henderson.

He then added the Gunners’ third, tying up a neat second-half brace in the process.

He also assisted Thomas Partey’s strike shortly after, making it 3 goal contributions during his first Prem appearance this season.

Naturally, Gooners online were plenty pleased with the forward.

But perhaps nobody was as happy as the 2 FPL managers who audaciously captained Nelson before the game.

Despite Saka being a fan-favourite pick, these two managers saw the light and opted to bet heavily on Nelson instead.

And shockingly enough, it worked out.

The ingenious managers earned 32 points each, quite the haul.

The news soon hit Twitter, surprising almost every fan, and even Reiss Nelson himself.

Upon discovering the news, the forward tweeted out, ‘You got no idea how much I rate!’, before adding, ‘How can I find out who did this? I’d love to give them a shirt!.’

A signed shirt is a pretty nifty reward for the brave act, although it’s going to be pretty tricky figuring out who the 2 managers were.

As soon as the tweet went out, the comments were filled with users staking their claim on the shirt. Some fans even shared their FPL sides with watermarks to cement and secure their claims.

Hopefully, the shirts will end up with those deserving.
