Liverpool forward - Mohamed Salah

There are only three week's left in the Premier League season and Paul Robinson has picked out five players who he hopes will help you finish on a high...

Liverpool are one of the few teams left with something to play for, and Salah himself has not hidden the fact that he wants to win another Golden Boot.

The Headline Pick: Mohamed Salah - West Brom (A)

This article is being written before Liverpool's match with Manchester United on Thursday, but assuming he doesn't get injured, Mo Salah has to be the headline pick in a reduced GW36.

Liverpool are one of the few teams left with something to play for, and Salah himself has not hidden the fact that he wants to win another Golden Boot.

He has found the net in three of his last four Premier League starts, and while the Reds have been struggling in front of goal at Anfield, they have been just fine away from home.

The Baggies have now had their relegation confirmed, so there is every chance that Sam Allardyce will start tinkering with his team, in order to see who he wants to keep for next season in the Championship.

The Budget Pick: Stuart Dallas - Burnley (A)

A player like Stuart Dallas is gold in the FPL, as he is an out of position defender. Marcelo Bielsa is playing him in midfield, but if Leeds keep a clean sheet, he gets four points instead of one. He also gets six points for a goal scored.

The Northern Irishman has eight goals to his name this season, with three of those coming in his last five games. He got that famous brace at the Etihad, before opening the scoring against Spurs last week.

His team are at Turf Moor this weekend, and while the Clarets have been in good form with two wins from their last three, they are now safe from relegation, and their intensity levels might drop.

You can get 6/1 on Dallas scoring his ninth of the season at Burnley.

The VAR Pick: Danny Ings - Fulham (H)

Danny Ings made a surprise return to action against Crystal Palace on Tuesday, and he picked up where he left off by scoring a brace at St Mary's.

He now has 12 goals for the season, and with only 24 starts, he's averaging one in two. He will be aiming to impress Gareth Southgate in the final few games of the season to try and force his way into the Euro squad, and he has a great opportunity to shine against Fulham on Saturday.

Scott Parker's side have been poor in recent weeks after a brief rally, and I wouldn't expect them to put up too much resistance to the Saints, if the hosts are on-song. Fulham have also conceded seven penalties this term, and with Ward-Prowse having a less than stellar record on spot-kicks, it is highly likely that Ings will be back on them now that he is fit again.

The Sleeper Pick: Sergio Aguero - Newcastle (A)

I am including Sergio Aguero as a sleeper pick, as he is only owned by 1.3% of players, and he will be looking to atone for his penalty miss against Chelsea.

His starting place isn't guaranteed, but it's been a long campaign for City, and Aguero is fresh compared to most. It is highly unlikely that he will get the nod in the Champions League Final, so Guardiola will almost certainly start him in at least two of their final three league matches.

I don't need to list Aguero's credentials, as they speak for themselves, and despite Newcastle winning 4-2 at Leicester last time, there still appears to be plenty of unrest at St James', and it wouldn't shock me if City ran up a big score on Friday evening.

The Argentine is 4/1 to score two or more at St James'.

The Wildcard Pick: Gareth Bale - Wolves (H)

The Welshman has started all three matches for Spurs since the departure of Jose Mourinho, and he has racked up 32 points - largely made up by the four goals that he scored.

His team weren't very good in their 3-1 defeat at Elland Road last weekend, but they face a much easier task at home to Wolves on Sunday.

Nuno Espírito Santo's side don't play with anywhere near the intensity of Leeds, and while they beat Brighton last time, they were 1-0 down when Brighton were reduced to 10 men.

Bale can be explosive, as evidenced by his hat-trick against Sheffield United, and he could be a good differential for players who are chasing mini-league leaders.

Tottenham are as short as 40/85 to beat Wolves.
