You’ve fought valiantly for 35 Game Weeks, racking up hours of wasted work time chopping and changing your Dream Teams.

And now – as the great Sir Alex Ferguson said – it’s squeaky bum time.

With just a couple of Premier League games left for a handful of clubs and the small matter of the FA Cup and Champions League finals, points are at a premium.

So who’s in the running to bag that mouthwatering £150k Dream Team winning prize?

Well heading down the home strait we are pleased to say the race is still extremely competitive, with the top seven managers separated by less than 50 points.

Liverpool fan Mark Lawlor currently leads the way on 2804 points but Blackburn supporter Margaret Quigley is hot on his heels after a brilliant weekend.

Then come three more Liverpool fans, a United fan and an Ipswich fan to make up that top seven battling for the top prize.

Now our captain, leader and legend Mark currently has this team to beat:

His closest challenger Margaret has a couple of tricks up her sleeve though, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gabriel Jesus in attack.

With Arsenal and Man City facing a couple of pretty straightforward league fixtures they could both play a huge role.

Liverpool, of course, are in the Champions League final so Mark’s three Reds’ stars could prove enough to fire him to glory in the final game of the season.

It’s all set for a rollercoaster finish – and if it’s anything like last season’s Dream Team finale we’re in for a treat.

Our two joint winners last season both hinged on the FA Cup final, when Diego Costa’s missed chance at the end ultimately resulted in a share of the spoils.

Who will claim victory this year?
