Sky Sports Fantasy Football Tipster Pete Hall believes Edin Dzeko can fire Manchester City to the title, and plenty of fantasy points in the final round of Premier League fixtures.

Much-maligned, even by his own fans, for much of the season, Dzeko has stepped up to the plate when it has mattered most.
With West Ham the only obstacle to City regaining the Premier League title, their end-of-season talisman could bag himself plenty of Fantasy Football points this weekend, as well as another winners' medal.
With 23 points in the last game-week alone, the Bosnia international is finding his form in time for his country's World Cup debut, and without his goals the Premier League trophy would almost certainly have been leaving Manchester for pastures new this weekend.
With Sergio Aguero struggling with injury, Dzeko has notched five goals in his last three games, which has been pivotal to City propelling themselves to the top of the table for the first time since February.
Manuel Pellegrini's side are massive odds-on favourites in the Sky Bet match market to not just get the point they need to seal their second Premier League title, but emerge victorious against a Hammers side with little to play for.
And, after breaking the 100-goal mark against Aston Villa, more goals could be on the cards on Sunday.
West Ham have won just one point in their seven games against the current top four sides this season, and have beaten City just once in the Premier League, so the omens aren't great for Sam Allardyce's men.
City's full-backs Pablo Zabaleta (£7.4m) and Aleksandar Kolarov (£6.6m) have provided 14 assists so far this season, and with the former's Sky Sports Man of the Match award on Wednesday night against Villa boosting his Fantasy Football points tally further yet, the Argentine and Kolarov are likely to feature heavily in anything City offer in attack.
Liverpool will still retain some hope of snatching the title from City's grasp, and must get the job done against Newcastle at Anfield regardless.
Deadly duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge will be integral to ensuring the Reds apply the pressure on City, with their record speaking for itself.
Philippe Coutinho (£7.8m) is likely to start after his bench role in the incredible draw at Crystal Palace, and with 135 points and seven assists already to his name, the tricky Brazilian could potentially pile further woe on beleaguered Magpies boss Alan Pardew.
The rest of the Premier League final day clashes have less riding on them, with only the final Europa League place up for grabs, but with pressure relented, the goals could flow.
Fit-again Robin van Persie was back amongst the goals against Hull City in midweek, and will want to finish what has been a disappointing Manchester United campaign with victory at Southampton.
The prolific Dutchman has scored five goals in five Premier League appearances against Southampton, including a hat-trick in a comeback victory for the Red Devils at St Mary's last season, and is well fancied in the Sky Bet first goalscorer market to break the deadlock on Sunday.
Sunderland's 'Great Escape' has been quite remarkable considering the opposition they have disposed of in their survival bid.
The form of Connor Wickham has been a revelation, with five goals in a three-game spell, a run which included strikes at Manchester City and Chelsea, helping the 21-year-old earn the Barclays Player of the Month award for April, and at the bargain price of £6.7million, Wickham represents real value to managers with little cash to play with.
However, the form book warns that Sunderland have only won one of their last 11 league games against Swansea City (D5 L5), and if the Swans are to further improve that impressive stat then Wilfried Bony (£8m), is likely to be the match-winner.
After failing to score in his first 11 away appearances in the Premier League, the Ivorian has scored five in as many away games for Swansea.
With so many new signings, the season promised so much for Tottenham, but only Christian Eriksen has impressed of the new arrivals, after a slow start.
His end-of-season points return has been mightily impressive for those of you who kept faith, and at £7million, he is certainly worth adding to any side with Aston Villa, whose survival is assured, the opposition.
Defensively, few have been as solid as Crystal Palace, especially under Tony Pulis, and a win-to-nil result at Fulham on Sunday would be the perfect finale.
Odds-on favourite in the Sky Bet LMA Manager of the Year market, Pulis has somehow guided the Eagles to 11th, with his success built on an almost faultless rear-guard.
Just two of the goals that Crystal Palace have conceded this season have followed errors by an Eagles player - a league-low, and the reliability of Scott Dann (£5m) and Damien Delaney (£4.6m) has been integral to their impressive record, and further solidity could see an incredible season finish on a high.
