After nearly nine months and 37 rounds of action, the Premier League season reaches its crescendo this Sunday; Man City or Liverpool? Who will be the champions of England?
The Advertiser Tribal League in association with St Anthony's and Claddagh Credit Union will see its champion crowned when play finishes at 5.15pm on Sunday. receiving a €250 cash prize, a pair of Galway International Arts Festival tickets 2019, a pair of Galway Races tickets 2019, plus much more. So who are the players who will bring home the bacon this weekend?
Sergio Agüero (Man City ) v Brighton
The Argentine hitman has only registered one goal in his last five league outings; the vital winner against Burnley. Despite his mini goal-drought Agüero is the man for the big moments and none come much bigger than the title decider this weekend away to Brighton. The Seagulls secured their top flight status last weekend and will be able to play without the shackles of fear. I think this game will be very difficult for title chasing city but as it is said; cometh the hour, cometh the man; Agüero will be the hero à la 2012, and keep the Premier League title in Eastlands for another season. Get him in your team.
Salomón Rondón (Newcastle ) v Fulham
The Magpies' frontman may have drawn a blank for five consecutive games but Salomón Rondón was excellent on Saturday night at St James' Park, when he nearly derailed Liverpool's title charge. The Peruvian striker found the back of the net and probably should had a second goal but for Liverpool defender, Trent Alexander-Arnold, handling on the goal line On Sunday Newcastle travel to west London to take on the worst defence in the league. Fulham have conceded 77 goals in the league this season and although they have shown good form; three wins in their last four matches, I can only see one winner and Rondón will be the reason why the points will be heading back to the northeast.
Seamus Coleman (Everton ) v Tottenham Hotspur
The Donegal man has been integral in Everton's climb up the Premier League table. Marco Silva's men struggled during the first half of the season but since the problems have been sorted out at the back, eight clean sheets in their last 10 league games, the Toffees have shot up the league and are sitting pretty in eighth. The Merseysiders opponents on Sunday are the woefully out of form Spurs. The north Londoners are all but qualified for next season's Champions League but that has been thanks to the ineptness of Arsenal and Man United rather than Spurs' ability. With nothing to play for on Sunday I can see Everton sneaking a win with Coleman playing a prominent role.
