South Korean helps Tottenham Hotspur fan and singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis beat Fantasy expert Mark Sutherns

A player from his beloved Tottenham Hotspur team delivered for singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis in his FPL Scout Challenge with Mark Sutherns.

A 15-point haul for Son Heung-min (£8.2m) at AFC Bournemouth made the difference as Rhys's £83million 11-man Fantasy Premier League line-up beat that of the FPL expert 48-32.

Rhys's decision to pick Nick Pope (£4.9m) also paid off as the Burnley goalkeeper kept a clean sheet and picked up two bonus points for a nine-point total.

A stunned Rhys tweeted his joy at winning ahead of Monday's match, which confirmed the victory. 

As Rhys says, Lady Luck played a role as Mark was left ruing the fine margins between success and failure for his players that denied him a win.

As well as his captain, Harry Kane (£12.9m), being injured in the first half, many of Mark's players narrowly missed out on extra points.

Steve Mounie (£5.8m) had a shot hit the bar, Theo Walcott (£7.1m) came within a whisker of scoring the own goal from Gaetan Bong (£4.4m) and Eden Hazard (£10.6m) came close to an assist on a number of occasions.

Mark was also frustrated by Marcos Alonso (£7.2m) being denied a clean sheet in the 90th minute of Chelsea’s match with Crystal Palace
