It really is that simple.

And as we all know fantasy football is a game of thrills and spills – just ask David Smith.

AFC Wimbledon fan David won Dream Team Weekender in Game Week 18 by a single point, finishing with a pretty sound total of 71.

But while it doesn’t matter how David bagged the £10k jackpot, it really did come down to the wire.

His points from Saturday were sensational, successfully picking three out of five Star Men including Willian and Mohamed Salah who both scored big numbers.

But Sunday didn’t get off to a good start when Sergio Aguero returned negative points from Manchester City’s 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.

So it duly came down to Arsenal’s clash with West Brom… and a rather fortunate moment seven minutes from time.

Alexis Sanchez’s massively deflected free kick may not have been enough to secure Arsenal victory, but his five points helped clinch David that precious £10k.
