Here are the picks for the third game week of the Grosvenor Goals season.

Norwich vs Chelsea (Saturday, 12:30pm) – Teemu Pukki (Norwich)

Teemu Pukki has started the season on fire for Norwich, scoring four in his first two matches – including a hat-trick against Newcastle last weekend – to be joint-top scorer in the Premier League. The Finn has picked up where he left off last season and Chelsea’s backline will need to be at their best to stop him in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Brighton vs Southampton (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Leandro Trossard (Brighton)

According to many pundits and punters alike, Brighton were certainties to go down this season, and while there’s still a long way to go this season, Graham Potter’s side have already surprised many with their attacking style. The Seagulls followed up an opening-day win with a respectable point against West Ham courtesy of Leandro Trossard’s second-half strike, and he’s been identified as the man to break the deadlock against Southampton at the Amex on Saturday.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)

Marcus Rashford stepped aside on penalty duties against Wolves, but after Paul Pogba’s miss the Man United frontman will likely be back on the spot and take one against Crystal Palace on Saturday should they be awarded another spot-kick. The England international scored from 12 yards against Chelsea before claiming a second in the league opener a few weeks back, and he’ll be tasked with scoring the bulk of the Red Devils’ goals this year.

Watford vs West Ham (Saturday, 15:00pm) – Sebastien Haller (West Ham)

Life at West Ham has barely begun for Sebastien Haller. An opening day thumping at the hands of Man City is the only glimpse Hammers fans have seen of the Frenchman in league action after he was ruled out for the trip to Brighton. However, big things are expected of the £45m signing and he’s been backed to break his duck against Watford at Vicarage Road.

Sheffield United v Leicester (Saturday, 15:00pm) – James Maddison (Leicester)

While Leicester are still in search of their first victory this season, the signs are there that the Foxes will cause teams problems by dominating possession in matches. Leicester’s No.10 James Maddison was in good form against Chelsea last Sunday, assisting the equaliser and nearly grabbing a winner which would have topped off an excellent display. Maddison knows he needs to add more goals to his game this season, and he’s selected as the player to break the deadlock against the Blades this weekend.

Liverpool vs Arsenal (Saturday, 17:30pm) – Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Liverpool v Arsenal games at Anfield have provided goals galore in recent years, and with both teams on maximum points, something has to give in this one. Mo Salah got off the mark against Norwich in the Reds’ opening game but has since drawn blanks against Chelsea and Southampton. The Egyptian never goes too many games without scoring, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him grab the opener in Saturday evening’s televised fixture.

Swansea v Birmingham (Sunday, 12:00pm) – Borja Baston (Swansea)

Spaniard Borja Baston’s double against Preston on Saturday helped the Swans to victory and made it three in as many games for the former Atletico striker. The £15m attacker went 1,022 days without a Swansea goal before this season, but another one against Birmingham will cement his place as the Championship side’s leading frontman. He’s backed to score first in the early Championship kick-off on Sunday.

Bournemouth v Manchester City (Sunday, 14:00pm) – Sergio Aguero (Man City)

Sergio Aguero will look to put Saturday’s touchline spat with manager Pep Guardiola behind him by scoring against Bournemouth on Sunday. The Argentinian has two in two in the Premier League this season and the Cherries will fear his prowess in front of goal when the Citizens visit the Vitality Stadium this weekend.

Tottenham v Newcastle (Sunday, 16:30pm) – Harry Kane (Tottenham)

Harry Kane has well and truly put his August goal curse behind him by notching twice against Villa in their season opener, and he’ll fancy his chances of scoring first against a struggling Newcastle side who are yet to pick up a point in the new campaign. Currently on 127 goals, England skipper Kane must be targeting the 150 mark this season, and he could get one closer to that milestone by punishing the Magpies in north London this Sunday.

Wolves v Burnley (Sunday, 16:30pm) – Diogo Jota (Wolves)

Wolves still need to record their first win of the season, but they’ll take heart from the point they claimed against Manchester United earlier this week. Their front pairing of Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez have been kept quiet thus far, but the former has scored a couple in the Europa League and will be eager to open his Premier League account for the season against Burnley when they visit Molineux on Sunday afternoon.
