Liverpool v Watford (Saturday, 12.30pm) – Mohamed Salah
Mo Salah returned to the scoresheet for Liverpool as the Reds saw off Bournemouth with a 3-0 win at the Vitality Stadium. Despite a spell on the sidelines, the Egyptian has now scored 10 goals in 20 matches across all competitions for the Reds this season, and he’ll be among the favourites to score first against bottom-of-the-table Watford on Saturday.
Burnley v Newcastle (Saturday, 3pm) – Jonjo Shelvey
Newcastle have seven points from a possible nine after a draw against Manchester City was followed up with wins against Sheffield United and Southampton. Central to that has been the form of Jonjo Shelvey, who has three goals in as many games. The Magpies midfielder is backed to break the deadlock at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Chelsea v Bournemouth (Saturday, 3pm) – Tammy Abraham
While Chelsea have lost two of their last three matches, Bournemouth have lost their last five in a poor run of form for Eddie Howe’s side. They will need to be at their best to stop the Blues at Stamford Bridge, and that will mean keeping striker Tammy Abraham quiet. The England international has scored twice in his last two appearances at home against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, and is fancied to put Frank Lampard’s men ahead on Saturday.
Leicester v Norwich (Saturday, 3pm) – Jamie Vardy
Another two goals last weekend made it 16 in the Premier League for the season for Jamie Vardy, as he took his scoring streak to eight successive games. The Englishman is the most dangerous striker in England’s top flight at the moment and the Foxes host relegation-threatened Norwich on Saturday, which presents the perfect opportunity for Vardy to extend his streak and add to his tally.
Sheffield United v Aston Villa (Saturday, 3pm) – John Lundstram
Surprise package of the season Sheffield United’s impressive win on the road at Norwich last weekend typified their campaign so far. Blades midfielder John Lundstram has also impressed and all of his three goals have come at Brammall Lane. He makes our Grosvenor Goals list this weekend as Chris Wilder’s side host Aston Villa.
Southampton v West Ham (Saturday, 5.30pm) – Danny Ings
Only Jamie Vardy has a better scoring streak in the top flight than Danny Ings at the moment. The Saints striker has five from his last five outings, and he’ll be looking to make it six in six against struggling West Ham at St Mary’s in Saturday’s late kick off.
Manchester United v Everton (Sunday, 2pm) – Marcus Rashford
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring in the Manchester derby last weekend which helped Manchester United to a 2-1 win, and that made it five in five in the league for the homegrown star. Despite a win against Chelsea last weekend, United’s upcoming opponents Everton are languishing in 14th and could find it tough at Old Trafford this Sunday.
Wolves v Tottenham (Sunday, 2pm) – Son Heung-min
A wonder strike from Son Heung-min for Tottenham last weekend was the highlight of their 5-0 thrashing of Burnley at home. The South Korean attacker ran from the edge of his own box before finishing to claim a stunning goal. Could he open the scoring at Molineux against Wolves on Sunday? We think so.
Arsenal v Manchester City (Sunday, 4.30pm) – Kevin De Bruyne
Despite being on the losing end of the Manchester derby on Saturday, Kevin De Bruyne still managed four shots on target against Man United and posed a threat to the Red Devils. The Belgian midfielder hasn’t scored against Arsenal in over two years, but he’s backed to claim the first goal against the Gunners in Sunday’s match.
Crystal Palace v Brighton (Monday, 7.45pm) – Jeffrey Schlupp
Monday night football sees Crystal Palace host Brighton in the M23 derby. The Seagulls pulled a fast one over the Eagles last year in this fixture at Selhurst Park, winning 2-1, so Roy Hodgson’s side will be out for revenge. Jeffrey Schlupp has been in good scoring form for Palace lately, scoring in two of his last three outings, and the Ghanaian is our final Grosvenor Goals pick for game week 17.
