England’s second-best fast bowler of all-time is also the world’s best Fantasy Premier League player.

Stuart Broad just pulled off a big week in FPL, scoring 180 points and rocketing to the top of the league’s standings:

With one match to go, Broad was counting on his West Ham goalkeeper Adrian to score big in today’s match against Man U, and Adrian delivered just enough to see Broad’s team Selby Forest fend off 5.9 million other players in Game Week 37.

For the win, Broad scored a copy of EA Sports’ FIFA18, a Nike match ball, and an FPL rucksack, mug and stress ball.

Is he happy about that? Yes. Yes he is:

Here’s his team, Selby Forest: Ben Foster (West Brom), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham), Marcos Alonso (Chelsea), Hector Bellerin (Arsenal), Jack Cork (Burnley), Leroy Sane (Man City), Raheem Sterling (Man City), Pascal Gross (Brighton), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea), Glenn Murray (Brighton). Subs: Adrian (West Ham), Ahmed Hegazi (West Brom), Abdoulaye Doucoure (Watford), Kyle Walker (Man City).
