Everton v Arsenal (Saturday, 12.30pm) – Richarlison
With Arsenal in such poor form, it’s not hard to turn their attentions to the attacking threats of an Everton side who have secured four points from a possible six under interim boss Duncan Ferguson. When Richarlison plays well, so do the Toffees and he looks the most likely to open the scoring.
Aston Villa v Southampton (Saturday, 15.00pm) – John McGinn
Southampton fans were left booing their side’s efforts following the defeat to West Ham last week and never looked like landing a blow, while Aston Villa bagged five against a Liverpool team full of teenagers in the Carabao Cup. John McGinn was rested for that clash and could be the answer here.
Bournemouth v Burnley (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Ashley Barnes
Ashley Barnes has scored three goals in two games against Bournemouth, both of which resulted in victories, so it’s no surprise that he’s one of the most likely candidates to break the deadlock. He’s already scored six goals in the Premier League this season and with four of those breaking the deadlock, he will be fancied to improve that impressive record at the Vitality Stadium.
Brighton v Sheffield United (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Neal Maupay
Neal Maupay has taken the step up to the Premier League in his stride and can continue his good form against Sheffield United at the Amex Stadium this weekend. The former Brentford man has netted seven already this season with more than half coming first and has also netted three in a row.
Newcastle v Crystal Palace (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Wilfried Zaha
Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha makes the whole team tick and will be influential in any form of attack the Eagles have during their trip to face Newcastle. He perhaps doesn’t score as many as he should, but having netted against Brighton on Monday night, he will be keen to keep the momentum going.
Norwich v Wolves (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Teemu Pukki
Winning on their own patch and getting Teemu Pukki firing is the key to keeping Norwich up this season and they will be hopeful of doing both this weekend. They sit three points adrift of safety but will see the visit of Wolves as a great chance of winning having seen Pukki net nine already.
Manchester City v Leicester (Saturday, 17.30pm) – Raheem Sterling
Jamie Vardy’s run of scoring eight consecutive goals in eight games came to an end at home to Norwich last time out and with a trip to Manchester City on the cards, he may have to wait a little bit longer to net again. Raheem Sterling has nine goals this season and can make it double figures.
Watford v Manchester United (Sunday, 14.00pm) – Marcus Rashford
It’s all doom and gloom at Vicarage Road this season with Watford languishing at the bottom of the pile with nine points. They also haven’t netted in four of their previous five Premier League games, so a Manchester United opener, via Marcus Rashford, gets the vote in the Sunday lunchtime kick-off.
Tottenham v Chelsea (Sunday, 16.30pm) – Harry Kane
By his own standards, Harry Kane hasn’t been quite as prolific as in previous seasons but the England international will be fired up for the visit of London rivals Chelsea on Sunday. He has netted more than any other Tottenham player this season and manager Jose Mourinho will be dreaming of a win.
Sheffield Wednesday v Bristol City – (Sunday, 12.00pm) – Jordan Rhodes
Jordan Rhodes has endured a difficult spell at Sheffield Wednesday on loan from Norwich, but his patience paid off last time out then he scored a first-half hat-trick against Nottingham Forest. With a performance like that, he will expect to lead the line versus Bristol City and will be full of confidence.
