And as we all know fantasy football is a game of fine margins – just ask James Pownall.

Liverpool fan James won Dream Team Weekender for Game Week 16 by a just two points, finishing with a mightily impressive 81 points in total.

And while his beloved Reds’ stars Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino did much of the damage, Kevin De Bruyne’s latest virtuoso display against Tottenham was the vital contribution.

De Bruyne’s impeccable performance in the 4-1 rout, which featured a stunning goal, earned him a Star Man award in 13 points.

And that was enough to take James clear of his nearest competitor’s 79 points, who had a largely similar team aside from the brilliant Belgian.

That decision ultimately earned James the entire £10k prizepot – just in time for Christmas too.
