That Lionel Messi, eh?

When’s he going to start delivering…?

The little maestro has deservedly dominated the headlines this week after carving out Liverpool’s heart, doing a couple of keep-ups with it. Then smashing it in the top bin.

But he wasn’t the only – or the first – player to rack up his 600th goal this week. That Cristiano fella only went and did it away at Inter Milan.

Monsters. The pair of ‘em.

No changes and with just a couple to go, we can probably safely say this is it. Or can we…?

On me Ederson...

In goal Liverpool’s Alisson has a 7pt lead over City’s Ederson, which will probably be enough in terms of cleans sheets. So the Brazilian needs one of his route one defence splitters to land at the feet of one of his front men either Monday night or on Final Day.

Robertson and van Dijk are tucked in at one and two. And Alexander-Arnold and Laporte will three and four, but in what order depends on keeping Newcastle and Wolves and Leicester and Brighton at bay. A-A might need the ‘snooker’ of an assist to be safe.

My Mo Fo...

Salah’s late run of – still-not-quite-the-heights-of-last-season-but-still-good - form has made him FPL top dog. And there is a straight fight between Hazard and Sterling for second place. You’d fancy Sterling, with Chelsea likely to wrap Eden in cotton wool in preparation for a glorious farewell in the Europa League Final.

Mane will claim the final Top Four place. Unless Pogba does something worthy of the Real Madrid transfer he wants.

No AA meeting here...

Up top, Aguero looks unassailable – and likes a Final Day goal, I seem to remember. But Aubameyang could yet be reeled in by Wolves’ Jimenez. And 38% of FPL bosses fancy it by the looks. And don’t rule out rat boy Vardy. He loves a goal against the Top Six and is in his best form for a couple of seasons.

Yeah?

The planned football career that would allow Matt to spend every afternoon in the bookies was cut mercifully short. So he was able to spend his mornings there too.

But rather than spunk his (sweet) FA pension on a day-tripper to Palookaville, Matt played smart. He watched, he listened. Learned his trade and earned a reputation.

But the bookies don’t like a winner...

First they closed his accounts. Then they tried legal action to shut down his tipping services. Now they employ him.

Matt has been providing winning football advice since 1998. And whether it has been via post, premium rate phone line, email, TV or Twitter – he has always made punters money.
