Majority of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers worldwide have shown their gratitude for his contribution by nicknaming him "Lord Lundstram".

After their 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday’s Premier League match, the player spoke to a media outlet, when asked about his fantasy premier league new title ’Lord,’ he said,

"It's a bit mad, I get so many messages about it. All the lads have started calling me 'Lord.'
