Everything may have been sewn up in England's top flight but there's still plenty to play for in the Burnley Express Premier League Fantasy Football.

While Pep Guardiola basques in the glory of a league and cup double, awaiting the nod to be crowned LMA Manager of the Season, there are still plenty of bosses in our computerised system that are battling it out for that accolade.

Remarkably just 12 points separate our top three going in to the final three game weeks so there'll be plenty of late nights researching potential squad selections and upcoming fixtures where they are concerned.

Andrew Mercer's 'Mighty Reds Wannabes' top the ladder at present with a total of 2,156 points with Mark Greenwood's 'Green Giants' dangling off his rivals' coat tails with a return of 2,148 points.

Tilen Gaber's 'Dukes of Eden Hazard' could do with a lift from a souped-up Dodge Charger named the General Lee to get their noses in front but there's still a chance having accumulated 2,144 points at the business end of the campaign.

All three teams are armed with PFA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah as well as Manchester City's Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.

Will either of them plump for Spurs striker Harry Kane to fire them to glory and when, if they have any remaining at this stage, will they use their final bonus chips to gain that all important advantage?

Our Manager of the Season prize has been kindly supplied by James' Places, with the individual accumulating the most points earning an overnight stay in the Spinning Block Hotel at Holmes Mill, a meal for two in the Beer Hall, and a Hen Harrier mini cask.

Burnley Football Club has also thrown in a signed Clarets shirt for the winner.
