Here are his picks for the final Premier League game week of the season.
Brighton v Manchester City (Sunday, 3pm – Sergio Aguero)
While winning the title will be Manchester City’s priority on Sunday, their Argentine talisman Sergio Aguero is two goals away from Mo Salah in the race for the Golden Boot and that will be in the back of his mind. Aguero and Salah are joint-top of the list of players to score first in Premier League matches this season, with nine opening goals apiece. Manchester City’s record goal scorer will hope he can break the deadlock on Sunday to lead the final charge to the Premier League title.
Burnley v Arsenal (Sunday, 3pm – Alexandre Lacazette)
Alexandre Lacazette is due a goal in the Premier League for Arsenal, as his last three strikes for the Gunners have come in the Europa League. The Frenchman is on 13 for the season in the Premier League and Sir Geoff thinks he can add to that in the final day of the season when they travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley.
Crystal Palace v Bournemouth (Sunday, 3pm – Andros Townsend)
Andros Townsend’s strike against Cardiff last weekend helped seal the Bluebirds’ fate in being relegated from the Premier League, while also making it eight goals in all competitions this season for the Palace attacker. The former England international tends to score unique goals when he does get on the scoresheet, so Eagles fans could be treated to a final day treat from Townsend on Sunday.
Fulham v Newcastle (Sunday, 3pm – Salomon Rondon)
Newcastle were desperately unlucky not to take all three points against Liverpool last weekend, and their performance was typified by the work rate and desire displayed by Salomon Rondon, who scored a fine volley to draw the Magpies level in the second half. That took the Colombian to double figures in the Premier League this season, and he’ll be looking to finish with a flourish against Fulham.
Leicester v Chelsea (Sunday, 3pm – Jamie Vardy)
Leicester have been in fine form since Brendan Rodgers took over, and the Foxes were unlucky not to come away from the Etihad with a point in midweek. Chelsea are likely to be feeling the effects of their Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt and Sir Geoff thinks Jamie Vardy will take advantage on Sunday to score the opening goal at the King Power.
Liverpool v Wolves (Sunday, 3pm – Sadio Mane)
Liverpool cannot afford to face a European hangover, although they could be forgiven after their wonderful 4-0 victory over Barcelona sent them through to the Champions League final. They need to beat Wolves to keep their title hopes alive on the last day, and it would be typical of Sadio Mane to put them in the lead after the fantastic season he’s had.
Manchester United v Cardiff (Sunday, 3pm – Paul Pogba)
Manchester United’s season has petered out after a tame 1-1 draw against Huddersfield last weekend saw them miss out on a Champions League spot. Red Devils fans will expect a performance on Sunday to finish the season in a positive manner, and with Paul Pogba on set pieces and a constant goal-scoring threat from midfield, Sir Geoff has backed the Frenchman to give United fans something to cheer.
Southampton v Huddersfield (Sunday, 3pm – Shane Long)
After scoring his first goal for nine months back in January, Shane Long has since scored four in 12 for the Saints. While it’s some way off being prolific, the Irishman has taken heart in being back in amongst the goals. He’ll have the chance to score his sixth of the season against relegated Huddersfield on Sunday in what could be his last appearance for the south coast side.
Tottenham v Everton (Sunday, 3pm – Lucas Moura)
Christian Eriksen stated Lucas Moura deserves a statue in London after his second half hat-trick against Ajax sent Spurs through to their first ever Champions League final. While that might be slightly overboard, there’s no doubt how effective the Brazilian has been for Tottenham this year, especially without talisman Harry Kane. He’s fancied to continue his scoring spree on Sunday when the north London side host Everton.
Watford v West Ham (Sunday, 3pm – Troy Deeney)
While Watford have an FA Cup final to look forward to later this month, the Hornets will want to end their season with another strong performance at home. They will look to Troy Deeney to get them off and running this weekend, and the Englishman is looking to make it 12 goals for the season on Sunday.
