What a week for for Premier League and fantasy football fans.
We were blessed with a double dose of action in the last seven days – and boy did it provide entertainment.
Manchester City were indebted to Raheem Sterling not once but twice to keep their relentless title-chasing machine rolling on while Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all found their groove with big wins.
But only one man can take home the accolade of Dream Team bargain of the Game Week 13.
And that could only be Wayne Rooney after he rolled back the years against West Ham in midweek.
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…
Rooney’s virtuoso hat-trick – capped by arguably the best goal of his career from the beyond the halfway line – earned him a mega 25 points across the entire Game Week.
That was enough to finish top of the tree, just ahead of Ashley Young and Raheem Sterling.
And when you consider Rooney only played in one of the two games that featured last week, it’s some achievement.
Rooney is just £2.8m on Dream Team at the moment and could be a real steal ahead of the busy Christmas period.
The former England captain should thrive under Sam Allardyce, who believed during his short stint as England manager that Rooney could ‘play anywhere’.
And Everton’s upcoming fixtures are highly favourable.
