Santi Cazorla: Top scorer in Sky Sports Fantasy Football

North London's two shining stars are destined to pick up the points amid the final day drama according to our Fantasy tipster

Both Arsenal and Tottenham's star men look like bankers to pick up points aplenty in the final weekend of Sky Sports Fantasy Football action.

The great rivals will battle it out for the right to play UEFA Champions league football next season and, while north London will be divided to who they want to prevail, backing both sides to win looks the most logical approach.

Both the Gunners and Spurs are strong favourites with Sky Bet as they face Newcastle and Sunderland respectively, who will both just be happy to end wretched campaigns without realising their relegation fears.

With home advantage, Andre Villas-Boas' men will surely prevail comfortably against the Black Cats, making having Gareth Bale on board a no-brainer.

The Welshman has racked up 227 points this season - with the majority coming in 2013, including five in his last five appearances at White Hart Lane.

Only one midfielder has racked up more points than Bale, a certain Spaniard predominantly presiding across north London.

Santi Cazorla is actually now the game's leading scorer after overtaking the suspended Luis Suarez, with 12 goals, 12 assists and 10 Sky Sports man-of-the-match awards seeing him rack up 258 points.

Away from the top-four battle, last weekend's hat-trick hero Daniel Sturridge looks poised to pick up points again when relegated QPR visit Anfield.

The England frontman has racked up 47 points in his last four games thanks to six goals, almost doubling his tally for the season.

Team-mate Philppe Coutinho, who is a bargain at just £5.5m, has also impressed since arriving at Liverpool, contributing two goals and five assists in his 11 starts for the Reds.

Manchester City should also be expected to record a comfortable victory when they host poor travellers Norwich, but it is wiser to look at their backline than their attacking options.

While City's frontmen have been inconsistent at best, their defence has recorded a Premier League record of 18 clean sheets.

Matija Nastastic's ability to adapt to the Premier League quickly has been impressive and the 20-year-old must be considered one of the bargains of the season at £5m.

Everton's backline boasts the best form, with five clean sheets from their last six games, but a trip to Chelsea detracts from the appeal.

With all games kicking off simultaneously, it is worth waiting for line-ups before confirming selections if possible, as plenty of managers are likely to rotate with little on the line for most.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
