Which is which?

Harry Kane. Say it four times fast.

The Spurs striker has been absolutely lethal all season, with Thursday's match the seventh time he's scored multiple goals in the league. A lot of ink will be spilled praising the England international, but it should not be overlooked that six different players recorded assists in the 1-6 away win to Leicester. Or that Christian Eriksen sat out.

Eriksen had been tipped for a move to Barcelona earlier this spring and he could be one of several big names to exit Spurs this summer. The six assists from six different players is a key statistic should the Dane depart: he is second in the EPL with 13 assists, easily pacing Dele Alli (6) among Spurs. (The Hard Tackle)

Not all rosy for Ross

Ross Barkley may be playing his final match for Everton on Sunday.

Given a firm deadline to reaffirm his commitment to the club, the England midfielder could be one of the most expensive players to swap squads this summer. Trying to gauge the market for Barkley this summer is difficult, with his Englishness and age counting heavily in his favor but his inconsistent play and failure to meet (perhaps unrealistic) prognostications muddy the waters.

With 50 million mooted, it is hard to see a landing place - Everton may need to move off that price if they're to move on from the boyhood Evertonian. (Football Whispers)

Can't please 'em all

It was a banner day for Mesut Ozil as he created 12 chances against Sunderland. Alexis Sanchez explosive attack proved a perfect foil to Ozil's deft passing. The give and go he executed with Granit Xhaka left Ozil in position to serve Sanchez his first tally on a platter.

When Arsenal aren't doing well, Ozil gets stick for being lazy, but he now has 97 key passes plus 8 assists - a total of 105 chances created. Only Eriksen and KDB have more. Arsene Wenger's recent tactical shifts have handed Ozil a leading role which could mean a starring role as the Gunners look to secure the Champions League and lift the FA Cup. (Daily Cannon)

Have some heart

Trying to find the best players for week 38 will be a challenge, particularly if your format has a deadline before lineups are announced. The week has several big games and top sides facing bottom-dwellers.

Arsenal, Liverpool and City have it all to play for while Chelsea (vs. Sunderland) and Tottenham (at Hull) get relegated sides. Conte has said he is chasing a record 30th league win, but John Terry in his final appearance for the Blues is a nostalgic pick. (Soccer Souls)

Show off your wares

With the summer fast approaching, it's time to put away the football, and pick up the football ephemera! Books, programmes, scarves, stickers....whatever your collection of choice, there's no better time than the summer to take stock and revel in the hunt for a rare button or travelling to buy an international kit.

Most of us will never have a collection that takes over a room, let alone a house, but some among us have amassed collections that are as awe-inspiring as the game itself. (Football 365)
