Manchester City v Huddersfield Town (1330 BST, Sky Sports Main Event)

Huddersfield have three games to save their season and avoid relegation out of the Premier League.

With the Terriers three points above the drop in 16th, David Wagner admits ‘anything is possible’ and says they are enjoying the experience with their fate in their own hands.

The trouble is the three games that lie ahead – away at Manchester City and Chelsea before ending at home to Arsenal.

City may well be champions but they can still set records as Premier League winners, Chelsea could yet be fighting for a top-four finish while Arsenal will be playing their last game with Arsene Wenger as their manager.

The West Yorkshire side have won just three Premier League games in 2018 – true relegation form – and those victories have all come against bottom half sides.

Huddersfield can be backed to win at the Etihad at around 33s – or 8/1 in a win/draw double chance – but it’s incredibly tough to see a shock and their title party being ruined here.

The hosts will receive the Premier League trophy on Sunday before Yaya Toure makes his final City appearance at the Etihad on Wednesday after Pep Guardiola confirmed his summer departure.

Town will have to be at the very top of their game, as well as City not being at it. Even if City are much-changed, the quality in their squad means they should still have enough to comfortably beat Town.

With Guardiola’s men odds-on for the victory, it is hard to find any real value in a coupon with City winning. Even Raheem Sterling in a score-and-win double is odds-on (8/11), but the England forward scoring first can be backed at a more tempting 15/4. If you think the Citizens will win by four goals or more, a -3 handicap in the home side’s favour is at 9/5.

Prediction: Manchester City 4-0 Huddersfield (Sky Bet odds: 6/1) (George Pitts)

Best bet: Raheem Sterling to score first at 15/4

Alternative: Manchester City to win with -3 handicap at 9/5


Arsenal v Burnley (1630 BST)

Arsene Wenger is facing the final curtain as Arsenal manager and his farewell to the Emirates Stadium happens on Sunday afternoon when the Gunners take on Burnley.

Wenger's 22-year reign ends with a trip to Huddersfield next weekend but spirits have been dampened for the goodbye by Thursday night's exit from the Europa League at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal won't be returning to the Champions League next season and that will mean a tougher task for Wenger's successor in the summer transfer market.

Burnley, however, are delighted to be joining Arsenal in the Europa League. Only a six-point and 15-goal swing to Everton in the final two matches of the season can deny Sean Dyche's men their European place.

The Clarets could still overtake the Gunners but I expect this to be a home win and that will seal a sixth-place finish for Wenger in his final campaign.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will return to the starting XI after being cup-tied against Atletico and the striker has netted four goals in Arsenal's last four Premier League matches on their own turf.

He's the main attacking threat for the Gunners but I expect Burnley to again prove a tough nut to crack.

The Lancashire outfit have only conceded more than one goal in one of their previous 14 outings, a 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea, and that run includes games against both Manchester City and Manchester United.

A run of five wins in a row has ended with a couple of draws and a defeat. Burnley though can still make things difficult for the odds-on hosts.

I like 4/1 for Arsenal to get the victory after being level at half-time.

That's how the Gunners have secured two of their last four wins at home in the league and Burnley have only been behind at the break in one of their previous six away games.

I don't expect goals galore for Wenger to enjoy and 0-0 at the end of the opening 45 minutes is also worth a look. That has been a winner in both of Arsenal's last two matches at the Emirates.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Burnley (Sky Bet odds: 13/2) (Nick Hext)

Best bet: Half-time/Full-time - Draw/Arsenal at 79/20

Alternative: No goals in the first half at 5/2


Chelsea v Liverpool (1630 BST, Sky Sports Main Event)

Liverpool arrive at Chelsea on a high after reaching the Champions League final at the expense of Roma.

The bad news for Jurgen Klopp is he has limited options to change his starting XI after Wednesday's end-to-end showdown at the Stadio Olimpico.

"Can you try to make different line-ups with my squad? Do it! We can’t do it," Klopp put as a challenge to journalists in his pre-match press conference.

Nathaniel Clyne and Danny Ings could get the nod to join the starting XI but it's going to be another effort required from the majority of Klopp's first-choice players.

Liverpool have drawn their last couple of games against West Brom and Stoke in the Premier League as they managed the challenge of Roma in Europe.

Those two results mean this clash against Chelsea takes on added significance. Liverpool still need a point to effectively secure their qualification for next season's Champions League. That's due to a superior goal difference for the Reds.

I think Liverpool will just about get the point they need and it will be another entertaining contest involving Klopp's side.

Three of the Reds' last four matches have contained over 3.5 goals and I want some of the 2/1 for above that mark once again.

Chelsea are looking for a fifth win in a row on Sunday but I'm concerned by their recent poor showings against other sides from the top six.

Arsenal (2-1), Manchester United (2-1), Manchester City (1-0) and Tottenham (3-1) have all got the better of the Blues since 2018 started.

The game between these teams earlier this season ended in an entertaining 1-1 draw at Anfield. Willian scored a late equaliser for Chelsea after Mohamed Salah had given Liverpool the advantage.

Chelsea have it all to do to overhaul Liverpool and Tottenham in the race for Champions League qualification. I just can't see their bid for a top-four place ending in a success and a draw on Sunday won't help that quest.

Prediction: Chelsea 2-2 Liverpool (Sky Bet odds: 11/1) (Nick Hext)

Best bet: Over 3.5 goals at 2/1

Alternative: Goal in both halves at 8/11
