Arsenal v Norwich 12.45pm SS1

Arsenal are in pole position for 3rd spot and a guaranteed Champions League spot for next season, but will want to win this game in order to stretch the slender 1 point lead they have over bitter rivals Spurs, and Newcastle who host league leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

Norwich have impressed hugely in their debut season, but you have to expect that their thoughts are more on their summer holidays than the winning tactics for a trip to the Emirates Stadium.

The Canaries have lost their last 3 games, conceding 11 goals in the process and scoring just 3 in reply.

Arsenal have let things slip slightly in the last few too, collecting just 2 points in 3 games, but will see Norwich as a perfect opportunity to get back on track.

MK Dons v Walsall 3.00pm

On first glance this game appears to be a dead rubber. MK Dons are assured of a position in the play-offs and Walsall have survived the threat of relegation, just.

However MK Dons will want to secure the 3 points in order to finish in 4th spot, securing a favoured 2nd leg home tie in the play-offs against Huddersfield who are currently 2 points behind them.

Milton Keynes have won their last 4 games,  keeping 3 clean sheets, and face a Walsall side that have won just 1 of their last 19 away games.

Stevenage v Bury 3.00pm

Stevenage will be going all out to beat Bury here. They occupy 6th place in the league on 70 points and will need all 3 points to guarantee staying in the final play off position in League 2, setting up a two legged tie with Sheffield United.

Notts County are breathing down their necks with just goal difference separating them, although Stevenage are well ahead in that department.

Opponents Bury are safely tucked up in 12th place, and focus will firmly be on next season. Their recent form has been good, but you have to expect the home team to be by far the hungrier team in this game.

Stevenage won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in October, and there’s no reason to believe that they won’t secure another important 3 points at this crucial stage of the season.


The above selections placed in a treble at Bet365 pays a great value return of just over 2/1
