Everton have been the talk of the Premier League this summer transfer window, with the club splashing the cash and also recouping a massive fee for the outgoing Romelu Lukaku.
The Toffees have added plenty of new faces to give themselves a chance of challenging for the top four, and despite a poor loss to Chelsea last weekend, they do have the looking of a very good Premier League team this season.
The new additions will no doubt all play their part, but our landlord here in the Tavern thinks one man in-particular can lead the club to success this season.
That man? New signing and England legend Wayne Rooney.
The former Man United striker was brought in for nothing over the summer, and he could well prove to be an absolute bargain for Everton.
Fighting fit and looking like he has somewhat of a point to prove, the lifelong Evertonian looks to have a new lease of life in the opening few games of the season.
Rooney is still a class act, and with Everton manager Ronald Koeman not having any qualms about playing young players like Tom Davies and Dom Calvert-Lewin, Rooney could hold the key to making everything knit together at Goodison.
There’s a big chance they could spoil the party in the top four this season, and we believe Rooney could be the man who is the catalyst for any upcoming success on the blue side of Merseyside.
