Here are the picks for the Premier League’s midweek games, where you can also keep an eye out for our football betting odds.
Crystal Palace v Bournemouth (Tuesday, 7.30pm) – Luka Milivojevic
Crystal Palace have found goals hard to come by this season. With just 13 scored, only bottom of the table Watford have scored less (9), and Jordan Ayew is their top scorer with just four this season. While Wilfried Zaha has scored a couple in recent weeks, he is level with the Eagles’ set-piece specialist Luka Milivojevic on just two goals in the league this season. We’ve gone for the Serbian to break the deadlock for this one, due to him being on spot-kick duties for Roy Hodgson’s men. Of the 26 Premier League goals scored by the midfielder, 21 have come from the spot.
Burnley v Manchester City (Tuesday, 8.15pm) – Raheem Sterling
Raheem Sterling made it eight Premier League goals in 13 appearances this season when opening the scoring at St James’ Park against Newcastle at the weekend. He sits joint fifth in the Premier League scoring charts this season, but the England attacker has failed to score against Burnley for Manchester City in five domestic matches – something he’ll be looking to put right on Tuesday evening at Turf Moor.
Chelsea v Aston Villa (Wednesday, 7.30pm) – Willian
A few weeks ago things were looking rosy for Chelsea and Frank Lampard, but back-to-back defeats against Manchester City at the Etihad and West Ham at Stamford Bridge have dampened spirits for the Blues. Aston Villa at home in midweek presents them with an opportunity to bounce back, and they could look to change their starting XI, which is why we’ve backed Brazilian playmaker Willian to notch first against Dean Smith’s men. The Brazilian is deadly from free-kicks and will be keen to add to his three goals this season.
Leicester v Watford (Wednesday, 7.30pm) – Jamie Vardy
Leicester looked like a team lacking ideas and a goal threat against Everton on Sunday evening until the ever-reliable Jamie Vardy popped up with a much-needed equaliser which sparked a Foxes comeback. That goal made it 13 in 14 Premier League games for the former England international this season, and he’s now seven goals away from joining the Premier League’s 100 goals club, which is well within his sights for this season. The No.9 makes our Grosvenor Goals list this week and will be a popular choice to score first against Watford.
Manchester United v Tottenham (Wednesday, 7.30pm) – Harry Kane
Harry Kane might be disappointed at his Premier League goals return this season. A total of seven in 13 games would be a healthy return for most strikers, but the England skipper holds himself to extremely high standards and will want to better that tally. The spotlight will be on Jose Mourinho as the Spurs manager makes a return to the dugout at Old Trafford for the first time since being sacked by Manchester United last season, and Kane will want to make it a memorable return for his new gaffer by notching first against the Red Devils on Wednesday night.
Southampton v Norwich (Wednesday, 7.30pm) – Danny Ings
Southampton frontman Danny Ings has three goals in his last three matches and will be gunning for Norwich on Wednesday. A win for the Saints and an Everton defeat in the Merseyside derby will see the Saints make their way out of the bottom three, and they will be relying on the former Liverpool striker to get them off and running at St Mary’s against Daniel Farke’s team in what will be viewed as a six-pointer in this relegation clash.
Wolves v West Ham (Wednesday, 7.30pm) – Raul Jimenez
Wolves have taken last year’s steady Premier League form into this season again, while also juggling European football, and currently, sit in the top six. A home match to West Ham presents them with a good opportunity to stay sixth, and they will look to their Mexican talisman Raul Jimenez to lead the way and break the deadlock against the Hammers. He has 15 goals in 26 matches for club and country this season and will fancy adding to his six Premier League goals against the east London club on Wednesday.
Liverpool v Everton (Wednesday, 8.15pm) – Sadio Mane
Sadio Mane has experience of scoring first in a Merseyside derby. The Senegalese ace scored the only goal of the game in the 90th minute at Goodison Park in December 2016, but hasn’t scored against the Toffees since. After a run of three goals in his last four Premier League outings, the Reds attacker has been backed to put their arch-rivals to the sword on Wednesday night.
Sheffield United v Newcastle (Thursday, 7.30pm) – Lys Mousset
Lys Mousset was signed for a club-record fee of £10m in the summer for Sheffield United, and he has not disappointed Blades fans since joining. The Frenchman has five goals in 11 Premier League outings, and big goals against Arsenal and Manchester United were followed up with a strike against Wolves at the Weekend. Newcastle will be wary of the threat he brings in Thursday’s match at Brammall Lane.
Arsenal v Brighton (Thursday, 8.15pm) – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
It’s been a disappointing season for Arsenal thus far. They occupy eighth in the table, have seen their manager Unai Emery sacked and were held to a draw against Norwich at the weekend. But in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang they have a guaranteed goal scorer, and the Gabon international dragged them out of trouble with a double at Carrow Road, once again reiterating the quality he brings. He now has 10 goals in England’s top-flight this season, and that’s enough for him to be selected as our final Grosvenor Goals goal scorer for the midweek fixtures.
