The Premier League title race looks like it will come down to the final day, with Arsenal and Manchester City separated by one point. The champions play their game in hand at Tottenham on Wednesday.

Fantasy managers also have some difficult selection choices to make and Anthony Gordon could prove a shrewd selection for the final few matches after scoring once and adding three assists in his last four games.


Fulham v Manchester City (8.30am)

Fulham have won just one of their last five games and midfielder Harrison Reed is doubtful for their final home match.

Manchester City are unbeaten in 20 league games, scoring at least four times in five of their last six matches. The champions have no injury concerns this weekend.

Prediction: 1-3

Bournemouth v Brentford (11am)

Bournemouth have Milos Kerkez suspended and Ryan Fredericks, Chris Mepham, Tyler Adams and Luis Sinisterra out through injury and illness. Marcus Tavernier is doubtful with a minor hamstring strain.

Brentford have failed to score in only eight of their 36 matches this season. Aaron Hickey, Rico Henry, Ben Mee and Josh Dasilva are out through injury, while Kristoffer Ajer is doubtful.

Prediction: 2-2

Everton v Sheffield United (11am)

Everton continued their record of being one of three sides to never get relegated from the Premier League with victory over Brentford at the end of last month. Vitaliy Mykolenko, Dele Alli and Nathan Patterson are out with various injuries this match.

Sheffield United were officially relegated after their latest away defeat to Newcastle and Mason Holgate cannot play due to league loan rules.

Anel Ahmedhodzic will miss the remainder of the season after being sent off against Forest, while George Baldock, Chris Basham, Max Lowe, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Oliver McBurnie are out through injury. John Egan, Tom Davies and Daniel Jebbison are doubtful.

Prediction: 2-1

Newcastle United v Brighton & Hove Albion (11am)

Newcastle are on a run of one defeat in seven games to climb back into the top six. Sven Botman, Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schar, Matt Targett, Joe Willock and Lewis Miley are out to injury this match, while Kieran Trippier is doubtful.

Brighton ended a six-game winless run with home success over Aston Villa. Pervis Estupinan, Tariq Lamptey, Jan Paul van Hecke, Adam Lallana, Solly March, James Milner, Kaoru Mitoma, Jack Hinshelwood and Evan Ferguson will miss this match with injuries.

Prediction: 3-2

Tottenham Hotspur v Burnley (11am)

Spurs have lost four straight league games for the first time under Ange Postecoglou. Fraser Forster, Ben Davies, Ryan Sessegnon, Destiny Udogie, Manor Solomon and Timo Werner are unavailable this weekend.

Burnley must win and pray for favourable results to stand any chance of survival on the final day against Forest. Ameen Al-Dakhil, Jordan Beyer, Nathan Redmond, Luca Koleosho and Aaron Ramsey are out with injury, while Maxime Esteve is doubtful with a knock.

Prediction: 2-0

West Ham United v Luton Town (11am)

West Ham have conceded 14 goals in their last four games, losing three of those. Nayef Aguerd, Kalvin Phillips and Konstantinos Mavropanos are doubtful this weekend.

Luton will be relegated if they lose and Forest beat Chelsea at home. Amari Bell, Tom Lockyer, Issa Kabore, Marvelous Nakamba and Jacob Brown will miss this match through injury, while Mads Juel Andersen, Dan Potts and Chiedozie Ogbene are doubtful.

Prediction: 2-2

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Crystal Palace (11am)

Wolves could finish with their third-highest Premier League points total (52) with victory in their final two games. Craig Dawson and Leon Chiwome are out to groin and ankle injuries, while Mario Lemina is doubtful with a hamstring problem.

Crystal Palace destroyed Manchester United on Monday and now have 18 points from 11 league matches since the appointment of Oliver Glasner in February. Sam Johnstone, Cheick Doucoure and Matheus Franca are out injured this match, while Rob Holding and Jefferson Lerma are doubtful.

Prediction: 0-2

Nottingham Forest v Chelsea (1.30pm)

Nottingham Forest can secure another top-flight season if they win and Luton lose and they have Neco Williams a doubt with a muscle injury.

Chelsea smashed West Ham to move within two points of the European spots. Enzo Fernandez, Wesley Fofana and Romeo Lavia are out through injury this week, while Robert Sanchez, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Carney Chukwuemeka and Lesley Ugochukwu are doubtful.

Prediction: 2-3


Manchester United v Arsenal (12:30pm)

Manchester United suffered their thirteenth league defeat of the campaign on Monday at Palace to register their most losses in a top-flight season since 1989-90.

Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw will miss this fierce rivalry through injury, while Willy Kambwala, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay are doubtful.

Arsenal will push champions City right to the final day with victory at Old Trafford and the Gunners have a full squad for this crucial encounter.

Prediction: 0-3


Aston Villa v Liverpool (4pm)

Aston Villa will qualify for the Champions League with a win over Liverpool.

Tyrone Mings, Emiliano Buendia, Boubacar Kamara and Jacob Ramsey are out injured this weekend, while Emiliano Martinez, Nicolo Zaniolo and Morgan Rogers are doubtful.

To win the league Liverpool need to win their remaining two games Arsenal and hope Manchester City and Arsenal lose theirs.

Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara and Ben Doak are out injured this week, while Diogo Jota is doubtful with a hip injury.

Prediction: 1-3

Tuesday, May 14

Tottenham v Manchester City (4pm)

Spurs have won more than half (28) of the previous 53 top-flight contests with City.

Prediction: 2-2

Wednesday, May 15

Brighton & Hove Albion v Chelsea (3.45pm)

Chelsea have lost just two of their previous 13 league meetings with Brighton.

Prediction: 1-2

Manchester United v Newcastle United (4pm)

Manchester United have tasted defeat in nine of 57 league contests with Newcastle, although the Red Devils have won just one of the last five meetings.

Prediction: 1-3
