Democratic Republic of Congo and West Bromwich midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu played party pooper at the weeked in an amazing 5-5 English Premier League draw with Manchester United.
Mulumbu scored with nine minutes left and the Baggies equalised soon after at the Hawthorns to deprive Alex Ferguson of a victory in his final match as boss of the Red Devils.
Senegalese Demba Ba set up the opening goal as Chelsea won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge against Everton, whose goal was created by Nigerian Victor Anichebe.

Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba has hit out at racist Fenerbahce fans who bombarded him and fellow Ivorian Emmanuel Eboue with monkey chants during the two sides meeting last weekend.
The former Chelsea star posted a message on the Turkish champions' Facebook page and also published a photograph depicting Charles Darwin's theory of evolution on the social media site Instagram.
"You call me a monkey but you cried when Chelsea beat Fenerbahce in 2008, you called me monkey but you jumped in front of your screen when I won the Champions League," Drogba wrote.
Ivory Coast striker Arouna Kone was among the stars as Wigan stunned Manchester City 1-0 at the weekend to lift the FA Cup trophy for the first time.
The African star with the blond dyed hair troubled City throughout with his running and now turns his attention to keeping the cup winners in the Premier League.
Unfashionable Wigan visit Arsenal on Tuesday and host Aston Villa on Sunday, needing to win both ganes to be sure of avoiding relegation.
Arouna Kone helped Wigan Athletic to a historic English FA Cup triumph on Saturday after they edged compatriot Yaya Toure's Manchester City 1:0 in the final.
Wigan's determination to lift the crown for the first time in their history was helped by the sending off of Argentine defender Pablo Zabaleta in the 84th minute.
Kone and Yaya played every moment of the thrilling game which was decided in the 91st minute when substitute Ben Watson headed home from a corner kick.
Toure came close to scoring early on, but his shot was turned away by Spain's U-21 star Joel Robles who was in goal for Wigan.
Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has declared himself fully fit to face Wigan in Saturday's FA Cup final.
The Ivorian played only 45 minutes of Saturday's Premier League draw with Swansea because of fatigue and also sat out the midweek win over West Brom.
"Sometimes it is difficult to play all the games at the same level and to avoid injury," said the 29-year-old.
"But we have worked on ensuring I stay injury-free and concentrated on delivering at the weekend."
South Africa have moved up six places in the Fifa world rankings to break into the top 10 of African teams.
Bafana Bafana are the ninth best team in their zone and the 56th best team in the world according to world football's governing body.
Top three teams Cote d'voire, Ghana and Mali had no changes, while African champions Nigeria crept up the list, reaching 28th place overall, but the improvement does not lift them from fourth place among the teams from their continent.
Equatorial Guinea, the Africa Cup of Nations runners-up, slip to 10th in Africa, while Cameroon are the side to slip out of the top 10.
