Man City can sit back and relax with their Premier League title wrapped up.

Which is nonsense, of course, because Pep Guardiola’s side are hell-bent on breaking as many records as they can in their final three fixtures.

Going into this weekend’s home clash against struggling Huddersfield, Guardiola’s side know that one more win from their final three games will set a new Premier League points record, while scoring two more goals will break the league’s scoring record for a single season.

So why not opt for this season’s top points-scoring defender?

Otamendi is streets ahead of his fellow defenders on Dream Team this season, racking up 214 points across the season at an average of 4.8 points per game.

Dusan Tadic – £2.4m

Southampton’s hero this season

It’s been a pretty grim season for Southampton, who will be desperate to keep their survival hopes alive with a win over Everton on Saturday.

And they’ll be looking towards Tadic to inspire them to safety.

The Serbian notched an impressive 18 points in the win over Bournemouth last weekend when he netted both goals in the 2-1 win.

He’s easily been Southampton’s best player in an overly abysmal campaign, but does he have what it takes in the upcoming games against the Toffees and relegation-rivals Swansea?

Wilfried Zaha – £4.8m

How important has this guy been for Palace?

Outstanding last weekend against Leicester, Zaha will surely want to keep up the pace when Crystal Palace visit relegation-threatened Stoke at the weekend.

Netting four times in his last four games, the winger is looking to finish the season as strongly as possible in the last two games.

What’s more, we’re certain there’ll be a couple of the big boys sniffing around the young winger.

Alexandre Lacazette – £4.5m

The Arsenal striker will be eyeing a strong finish to the season

It’s been a season to forget for Arsenal, but with Arsene Wenger bowing out at the end of the campaign they’ll be desperate for one last hurrah under the Frenchman.

And with Lacazette struggling for most of his time in North London, it might seem odd for us to recommend signing the striker for this crucial stage.

But the former Lyon man has been excellent in recent weeks, linking up well with fellow forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and netting seven times in his seven appearances for the Gunners.

It’s also important for him to show what he can do, with a space in France’s World Cup squad surely still up for grabs.

Jay Rodriguez – £4.0m

Can this guy help West Brom finish the campaign with some dignity?

Can this guy help West Brom finish the campaign with some dignity?

He’s not exactly set the world alight this season, but the West Brom striker will surely do all he can to help the Baggies end the term with dignity.

They’re almost certainly relegated this season (barring some kind of miracle), but at least they’ve regained a certain degree of fight under Darren Moore in recent games.

Two wins and two draws since taking over from Alan Pardew, it’s surely too late for a late-revival.

But we like the idea of Rodriguez netting in their upcoming games against Spurs and Palace.
