Here are the picks for the opening game week of the Grosvenor Goals season.
Arsenal vs Burnley (Saturday, 12:30pm) – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started the season in typical fashion last weekend against Newcastle, netting his side’s only goal in a scrappy 1-0 win. The Gabon international might be Arsenal’s main man to lead the line this season, showcasing composed finishing to score the winner. He will be hoping to add to his six goals scored in three domestic matches against Burnley this weekend.
Aston Villa vs Bournemouth (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Joshua King (Bournemouth)
Joshua King often gets lost in the shadow of teammate Callum Wilson, but with neither striker scoring at the weekend, the Norwegian will be keen to make his mark in the league as early as possible. His total of 11 goals in the league last season was bettered only by Wilson for the Cherries and, facing an Aston Villa side who lost their opening match to Tottenham, King will fancy his chances.
Brighton vs West Ham (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Sebastien Haller (West Ham)
Having made his debut in West Ham’s 5-0 defeat at the hands of champions Man City last weekend, Sebastien Haller was a shining light in an uninspired team performance. The striker looks a real handful, with manager Manuel Pellegrini insisting ‘he will score lots of goals’ – it’s strong praise and faith shown from the former Premier League winning manager.
Everton vs Watford (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Gerard Deulofeu (Watford)
Gerard Deulofeu scored 10 goals in the Premier League last season for Watford and, in the absence of Danny Welbeck, Javi Garcia will once again turn to the winger as a source of goals. The Spaniard notched 12 goals in all competitions last season, the second highest of his career, and he’ll be eager to improve on that tally this term.
Norwich vs Newcastle (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Teemu Pukki (Norwich)
A shining light in Norwich’s defeat to Liverpool, Teemu Pukki’s finish had the hallmarks of a prolific Premier League striker. He was the top scorer for Norwich last season with 30 goals and it wouldn’t surprise us if the majority of the Canaries’ goals come at the hands of the Finn this year.
Southampton vs Liverpool (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
With five goals in four appearances against the Saints and two consecutive Premier League golden boots, Mo Salah needs no introduction. He has been the go-to man for Liverpool since they signed him two years ago and, after his goal on the opening weekend, the Egyptian will be aiming to add to his previous campaign total.
Man City vs Tottenham Hotspur (Saturday, 17:30pm) – Riyad Mahrez (Man City)
Man City will be happy with Riyad Mahrez’s opening day exploits, who registered three assists against West Ham. He will be hopeful of a strong run of games this season, his opportunities bolstered by the injury to Leroy Sane. Mahrez also has four goals in eight appearances against Spurs and will fancy himself to get on the scoresheet at the Etihad this weekend.
Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace (Sunday, 14:00pm) – Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)
With 10 goals in the Premier League last season, Wilfried Zaha is Crystal Palace’s main man. Despite much talk around a potential move away from Selhurst Park, the Eagles will be hoping Zaha’s focus lies with Premier League survival in south London. The Palace attacker will fancy his chances against newly promoted Sheffield United.
Chelsea vs Leicester City (Sunday, 16:30pm) – Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)
Following Chelsea’s emphatic defeat to Manchester United at the weekend, ‘big six’ specialist Jamie Vardy will be eager to get at the Blues’ defence. Vardy has four goals in 10 games against the Londoners, and will look to improve this weekend having drawn a blank against Wolves on the opening weekend.
Wolves vs Manchester United (Monday, 20:00pm) – Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)
Marcus Rashford could not have asked for a better start to his 2019/20 campaign. The Englishman bagged two goals against rivals Chelsea and looks to be thriving under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The forward will look to capitalise on United’s superior record against Wolves (P10, W6), and add to his two against the Blues.
