THERE is so much dividing the English. There’s North versus South, Right versus Left, rich versus poor, Leave versus Remain. The list goes on . . .

The penultimate week of the Premier League season brings with it a fantasy ‘double gameweek’ and given how unpredictable the final round of fixtures can be, this weekend provides your best chance of a strong end to the campaign. Raheem Sterling Manchester City have a most enticing pair of fixtures - Huddersfield and Brighton at home - and it would be criminal not to begin the weekend without at least a couple of Pep Guardiola’s players. Gabriel Jesus looks like a must-have up front, given Sergio Aguero’s continued absence.
