While the usual suspects in Harry Kane and Riyad Mahrez scored highly, one unlikely figure rubbed shoulders with them at the top of the Dream Team standings for Game Week 9.
Yes, our bargain of the Game Week is… Glenn Murray.
You’ve got the tools required to pick a superstar Dream Team, but Homebase is the place for you pick up the tools you need to get the job done at the lowest prices…
The Brighton forward got his first Premier League goals since August 2015 in Brighton’s thumping 3-0 win over West Ham last Friday.
Murray beat Joe Hart twice, once either side of the half time whistle, to help clinch the Seagulls’ first ever Premier League away win.
A seminal moment.
Murray’s brace at the London Stadium earned him that precious Star Man award and 18 points in total – just two shy of Game Week leaders Kane and Mahrez.
So should he be worth your consideration long term?
The former Crystal Palace and Bournemouth striker has more points than Kelechi Iheanacho, Troy Deeney and Jermain Defoe this season but has only been picked by 0.1% of Dream Team managers.
At just £1.5m he’s a steal too.
Brighton have a kind run of fixtures on the horizon, with Southampton, Swansea and Stoke their next three opponents.
So could Murray prove to be more than a flash in the pan?
