And this weekend has rather a lot riding on it.

Not only could Man City finally wrap up the title, we’ve also got the small matter of the Merseyside derby to kick the action off on Saturday lunchtime.

So which players will you be backing to do the business?

Dele Alli's goals stunned Chelsea and all-but ended their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League

Alli is backed to shine

Well our experts have had their say – with Adam Jones looking to bounce back after a fairly moderate score of 33 points last week.

He’s gone for Petr Cech in goal with struggling Southampton visiting the Emirates.

Then come Spurs duo Kieran Trippier and Jan Vertonghen with a clean sheet in the offing at relegation threatened Stoke.

Vertonghen has been a stalwart for Spurs

In front of them are Dele Alli and Willian, who has been Chelsea’s best player recently and will fancy himself against West Ham on Sunday.

And Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Jamie Vardy are his strikers.

Arsenal’s recent run of form has seen Michael Golson also opt for Cech in goal alongside Nacho Monreal and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk – who scored on his debut for the Reds in the Merseyside derby back in January.

Spurs duo Alli and Christian Eriksen – who were both on target in the 3-1 win over Chelsea last time out – make the midfield, while Aubameyang is up front with Man United’s Marcus Rashford, who could be the dark horse in the big game against City.
