England World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst will pick 10 first goal scorers each week for the 2018/19 Grosvenor Goals campaign. Grosvenor Goals gives users the chance to win £1 million if their 10 chosen players are all first goal scorers in a given game week.

If Sir Geoff selects four or more first goal scorers in a game week, all users who play Grosvenor Goals that week will win a £10 free bet.
England’s 1966 hat-trick hero correctly predicted that Gerard Deulofeu and Ayoze Perez would score first for Watford and Newcastle, respectively. Here are his picks for the Premier League’s game week 36.
Tottenham v West Ham (Saturday, 12.30pm – Son Heung-Min)
Four goals in his last six outings shows how important Son has been to Spurs since Harry Kane’s absence from injury. The South Korean attacker now has 12 Premier Leagues goals in 29 appearances, and with two goals already against the Hammers this season, he’ll be a big threat for the opener in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Crystal Palace v Everton (Saturday, 3pm – Wilfried Zaha)
Wilfried Zaha should perhaps have scored more for Crystal Palace this season, but a goal against Arsenal at the Emirates helped the Eagles to a 3-2 win, and that strike could help boost the confidence of the Ivory Coast international, who is perhaps playing for a move away in the summer.
Fulham v Cardiff (Saturday, 3pm – Aleksandar Mitrovic)
With 17 goals this season, Mitrovic is Fulham’s top scorer in what has been a poor campaign for the Cottagers. Since being relegated they have played with freedom, and a solitary strike from the Serbian via the penalty spot saw them sink Bournemouth last week. Sir Geoff thinks he’ll score the opener against Cardiff on Saturday.
Southampton v Bournemouth (Saturday, 3pm – Nathan Redmond)
Nathan Redmond’s speed and directness has been a shining light for Southampton this year, and could still prove to be pivotal in helping them fight off relegation. Saturday’s game against Bournemouth is huge and the speedy winger will fancy getting on the scoresheet to help his team stay further away from the drop zone.
Watford v Wolves (Saturday, 3pm – Andre Gray)
After watching his side concede the quickest goal in Premier League history against Southampton, Andre Gray forced home a late equaliser for the Hornets. Filling in for the suspended Troy Deeney, Gray’s physicality and speed can be a problem for defences, and Wolves will be wary of him this weekend.
Brighton v Newcastle (Saturday, 5.30pm – Glenn Murray)
Brighton need a win on Saturday to help boost their chances of Premier League survival, and when they need a goal they always look to veteran striker Glenn Murray. The Englishman has 13 in 39 appearances, and it tends to be vitally important goals that he comes up with, so Sir Geoff is backing him to break the deadlock against the Magpies in the late kick-off on Saturday.
Leeds v Aston Villa (Sunday, 12pm – Tammy Abraham)
A 25-goal haul in the Championship is a great return for Tammy Abraham, and with Leeds struggling after two defeats in their last two, the Chelsea-loanee will be out to put the Elland Road side to the sword. Sir Geoff has backed him to score first in the Sunday early kick-off.
Leicester v Arsenal (Sunday, 12pm – Jamie Vardy)
Another goal for Jamie Vardy last weekend made it 16 goals for the season, and the Foxes frontman will be keen to make a late push for the Premier League Golden Boot with another strike against Arsenal this weekend.
Burnley v Manchester City (Sunday, 2.05pm – Bernardo Silva)
A Player of the Year nomination for City’s Bernardo Silva was well deserved, and the Portuguese has been integral to Pep Guardiola’s side this year. Four in his last nine matches suggests he could continue his scoring touch against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United v Chelsea (Sunday, 4.30pm – Marcus Rashford)
While Manchester United are struggling for form of late, so are the visitors for this one. Neither have been free-scoring, but Marcus Rashford is always a danger and has been backed to open the scoring at Old Trafford in the afternoon fixture, in what will be a crucial match in the race for the top four.
