End of an era: Steven Gerrard with his manager Brendan Rodgers.

Steven Gerrard plays his last game for Liverpool at Anfield today but is he leaving the club he has been loyal to for 17 years too early? Andy Gray and Richard Keys, who front beIN Sports’ English Premier League coverage, discuss this and the weekend’s other games.

Liverpool v Crsyal Palace

Andy Gray: I am sure Steven Gerrard's last game at Anfield will end in victory over Crystal Palace. Liverpool will be too good and I can see them winning 3-0, with Gerrard scoring.

Richard Keys: Gerrard will probably leave Anfield today having been substituted in the 88th minute to a standing ovation after scoring the winner in a 2-1 victory.

Man United v Arsenal

AG: Arsenal are playing as well as anybody at the moment, despite that poor result against Swansea last week when the missed too many chances. United are doing OK, but I still don’t rate them that highly. 1-1.

RK:  I still think United need eight new players before they are a really good team. Arsenal were awful last week but Arsene Wenger will freshen the team up a bit and on their day they are better than United. 1-2.

Swansea v Man City

AG: City are playing more like their old selves, they have a fully fit squad, have won their last four games and are good enough to win this 2-1.

RK: Swansea were fantastic last week, so City will have to play well to get something out of this. 2-2.

Southampton v Aston Villa

AG: Villa will want to keep the momentum going with an FA Cup final looming but Southampton are no mugs at home and they might have too much. 2-1.

RK: The Saints are limping towards Europa League qualification but Villa still have the bit between their teeth. If they take the game to Southampton, they can win this. 0-1.

Burnley v Stoke

AG: Burnley won’t want to lose their last home game of the season. I am going to let my heart rule my head on this one and say Burnley will send their fans away happy with a 1-0 victory.

RK: I would love to see Burnley win this but, sadly, I don’t think it’s going to happen. 1-1.

QPR v Newcastle

AG: After their dismal performance against Man City last week when they got hammered 6-0, I expect to see a response from the QPR players. 2-1.

RK: QPR are a shambles but I cannot believe they can be as bad as they were last week. I don’t want to see Newcastle go down but I think they will lose this 2-0 which will make them sweat a bit.

Sunderland v Leicester City

AG: Both will think a point is good enough to guarantee their survival and I think they are right but because they are at home I think Sunderland will end Leicester’s fantastic run with a 2-0 victory.

RK: Leicester’s run has been great  but I can’t see them winning this.  I think both teams will settle for a draw. 1-1.

Tottenham v Hull

AG: Steve Bruce thinks his team can escape relegation but I can’t agree. It is important to win your last home game of the season and that’s why Spurs will win this 3-1.
RK: Don’t agree. Spurs have packed up for the season and Hull haven’t.  I don’t think Hull are done for yet and the fact they have to win means they will have more motivation. 1-2.

West Ham v Everton

AG: Two teams who are almost impossible to predict. Both are inconsistent, both lost last week, and because I can’t really favour one above the other, I’ll say 1-1.

RK: These two teams are second and third in the Fair Play League which offers a place in the Europa League, so don’t expect a blood and thunder match. 1-1.

West Brom v Chelsea

AG:  I think this will be an open game between two sides that have nothing left to play for. West Brom are safe and Chelsea can afford to enjoy themselves and not worry too much about the result. 2-2.

RK: It’s almost as if Chelsea have breathed a huge sigh of relief after winning the title and I thought they were awful in the second half against Liverpool last week. 1-1.
