JAMIE VARDY – Leicester (v West Ham – H)
With a result needed on the final day, Leicester find themselves in a desperate situation.
The Foxes need to beat West Ham on the final day, while hoping Leeds and Everton fail to get a result in their matchups.
Other teams in this situation have not had a respected Premier League striker in their ranks in the past, but Leicester do in the form of Jamie Vardy.
The veteran forward has chipped in with vital goals in recent games, and he could well step up to the plate this weekend.
The Foxes are in a must-win situation, and Jamie Vardy could be their saving grace here.
MARCUS RASHFORD – Manchester United (v Fulham – H)
After missing the last few games due to a mix of injury and illness, Marcus Rashford could well return for Manchester United’s final game of the season.
At the time of writing, the Red Devils are yet to secure their Champions League berth, with Liverpool close on their heels.
If they fail to get a result against Chelsea, a win against Fulham will be enough to secure Champions League football for the next campaign.
Rashford could be the key to United cruising to success. The England International has three goal contributions in two home league games against Fulham.
While this selection does depend on United’s result against Chelsea, it may be worth utilising Rashford in the final gameweek.

TAIWO AWONIYI – Nottingham Forest (v Crystal Palace – A)
A player in flying form as of late, Taiwo Awoniyi has been a shining light in Nottingham Forest’s attack as of late.
The former Liverpool striker has scored five goals in his last three Premier League stars, helping his side secure safety in the top flight.
The Nigerian forward could well keep his run going, when Forest head to London to take on Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace.
Awoniyi has faced tougher opposition in recent weeks and despite Palace showing improvement under Hodgson, they have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last five games.
Even with Forest having nothing to play for, it could well be worth chancing on Awoniyi to find the net here once again.
