Tottenham will be looking to close their Premier League campaign on a high, with six points from their last two matches. They will be looking for a good, positive win in front of their home fans, and ensure that they push Liverpool as close as possible for fifth position.

Spurs will be looking for a big performance from their France international shot stopper, Hugo Lloris. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has made 105 saves so far this season, at an average of 1.98 saves per goal conceded, and he will be hoping to further boost that ratio with another clean sheet.

In the middle of the park, Christian Eriksen has proven himself to be one of the hardest working midfielders not just in the team, but in the league. The Denmark international has covered the most ground of any Premier League player so far this season, completing 407.29km. He has also completed a squad best 1,083 passes in the opposition half, also making four assists and finding the back of the net 10 times.

Up top, Harry Kane will be looking to put a very happy end to his breakout campaign in the Spurs squad with further success. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has netted his 20 goals at an average of a goal every 120.35 minutes.

Hull come into this weekend’s fixture in desperate need of a win. Two victories on the bounce were swiftly followed by two defeats to Arsenal and Hull, and there is no time to waste in re-discovering that form. Hull currently sit two points behind Newcastle and Sunderland, and will be hoping that results go their way to ensure that they don’t sit in the bottom three going in to the last round of fixtures.

Hull will need a massive performance from their goalkeeper Alan McGregor if they are to remain a Barclays Premier League club next year. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has made 64 saves so far this season, at an average of 1.6 saves per goal conceded. He is looking for his third clean sheet in five to further boost that ratio.

In the middle of the park, Jake Livermore will be looking to deliver another hard working performance. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has covered a squad best 392.82km so far this season, winning 93 tackles in the process, 72.1% of his overall attempts. He has also racked up 57 interceptions, and on the ball has completed 625 passes in the opposition area, and will look to dictate the tempo of the game this weekend.

Ahmed Elmohamady will join him on the right hand side, and he has proved to be one of Hull’s most consistent performers this season. The EA SPORTS Player Performance Index can reveal that he has won 65 tackles so far this season, 75.6% of his overall attempts, also making 102 clearances and 61 interceptions. He is equally important going forward, having completed a squad best 51 crosses, set up five goals and even scored twice.
