Wolves vs West Brom Tip
There is plenty of pressure on the shoulders of Pedro Neto this season following the sale of Diogo Jota and the injury to striker Raul Jimenez, but he has been one of Wolves’ stand-out performers with four goals so far this term and we fancy him to get the better of a West Brom outfit with the worst defensive record in the Premier League.
Our pick: Pedro Neto
Leeds vs Brighton Tip
Only seven players in the Premier League have reached double figures for goals in the Premier League and one of them is Leeds forward Patrick Bamford, with six of his ten strikes thus far being the opening goal in their matches. The Whites are among the most creative sides in the league statistically and we expect the 27 year old to profit against a struggling Brighton side.
Our pick: Patrick Bamford
West Ham vs Burnley Tip
West Ham are flying high in the top half of the Premier League table and one of their stand-out performers so far this term has been Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek. A threat from corners, the 25 year old has scored twice in the Hammers’ last three games to take his tally to five in the Premier League this term.
Our pick: Tomas Soucek
Fulham vs Chelsea Tip
Tammy Abraham has had to fight for his starting spot at Chelsea this season but has rewarded Frank Lampard’s faith with six goals in his 14 Premier League appearances. West London rivals Fulham are the hosts of the Blues this weekend but they haven’t scored the first goal in any of their last three league matches, despite some improved form.
Our pick: Tammy Abraham
Leicester vs Southampton Tip
Only two players have scored more goals than Jamie Vardy in the Premier League so far this season with the experienced striker showing no signs of slowing down with 11 to his name thus far. What’s more, he managed a hat-trick against Southampton last season in Leicester’s 0-9 win at St Mary’s Stadium.
Our pick: Jamie Vardy
Sheffield United vs Tottenham Tip
Son Heung-min is in need of a return to form in order to lift Spurs back into the title race although he has still managed two goals in his last three appearances. The strike in the home victory over Leeds took his total to 12 in the Premier League this term and he’ll hope to get the better of the league’s bottom side here.
Our pick: Son Heung-min
Liverpool vs Manchester United Tip
Bruno Fernandes is one of the stand-out players in the Premier League at the moment and the Portuguese attacking midfielder has racked up no fewer than 11 goals in the tournament so far this term. He is a man for the big occasion, and occasions don’t come much bigger than Liverpool vs Manchester United!
Our pick: Bruno Fernandes
Man City vs Crystal Palace
Kevin de Bruyne is one of the few players you can rely on to start most weeks in Pep Guardiola’s rotating squad. The Belgian midfielder has been one of the best players in the league over the last few seasons and is as much of a threat arriving in the box to finish slick passing moves as he is with long-range efforts and set-pieces.
Our pick: Kevin de Bruyne
Arsenal vs Newcastle
Alexandre Lacazette has been the main goal threat for Arsenal this season rather than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Frenchman has scored a goal every other game with seven in his 14 league appearances and after only being introduced from the bench in the cup tie with Newcastle last weekend, he’ll expect to start and score on Monday night.
