Crystal Palace v Arsenal (Saturday, 12.30pm) – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Only Jamie Vardy has netted more league goals than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this season, so the Gabon-born striker is the obvious choice ahead of the Selhurst Park clash. More than half of his 13 Premier League goals have come first and with Palace more than a little goal-shy, he gets the nod.
Chelsea v Burnley (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Tammy Abraham
Manager Frank Lampard is able to splash the cash this January following the end of Chelsea’s transfer ban but the club legend certainly won’t be looking to replace Tammy Abraham. He has scored an average of one goal every 132 minutes and won’t mind the aerial duels he’s likely to encounter at home against struggling Burnley.
Everton v Brighton (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Richarlison
Despite spending more than £450million on players since 2016, Everton are still finding things tough and place an unhealthy amount of reliance on the creativity of Brazilian Richarlison. Nonetheless, the former Watford man is easily the Toffee’s most dangerous player and will be one of the favourites to score the first goal against Brighton.
Leicester v Southampton (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Perez
Ayoze Perez thoroughly enjoyed his goal against former club Newcastle last time out in the league as the Foxes won all three points. All eyes have been on Vardy so far this season but with the division’s top scorer potentially missing due to injury, a confident Perez could be the answer.
Manchester United v Norwich (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Marcus Rashford
Having already beaten his Premier League goal-haul for last season, Marcus Rashford has become one of the first names on the Manchester United team sheet and the Norwich defence will be more than a little worried when he lines up against them on Saturday. He has netted first on five occasions already this season and with a home win expected, he could make that six at Old Trafford.
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Newcastle (Saturday, 15.00pm) – Raul Jimenez
Wolves manager Nuno Espírito Santo will fancy his chances of landing all three points when Newcastle travel to the Midlands this weekend and Raul Jimenez will be the main threat. He already has eight goals this season and having recently revealed he wants to be the most successful Mexican to have ever played in the Premier League, he’ll be hungry to add to his tally.
Tottenham v Liverpool (Saturday, 17.30pm) – Mohamed Salah
With a goal difference of +35, a 13-point advantage going into this round of fixtures, and a game in hand on the chasing pack, Liverpool are a side no team wants to face. Their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have bagged 35 goals between them and it’s the former, who has two in two against the north London side, who is our selection.
Cardiff City v Swansea (Sunday, 12.00pm) – Andre Ayew
The whole of Wales will be glued to Cardiff v Swansea this weekend but Andre Ayew could play a big part in determining who earns bragging rights. The former West Ham striker, who is back at Swansea for a second spell, has netted nine times this season and would love to hit double figures in such a big game.
Bournemouth v Watford (Sunday, 14.00pm) – Troy Deeney
After a slow start to the season, Troy Deeney is reminding fans why he is Mr Watford and his three goals in his previous four games have helped the Hornets in their fight for Premier League survival. They have won three of their last four games and he is likely to play a huge part in what looks a relegation six pointer.
Aston Villa v Manchester City (Sunday, 16.30pm) – Sergio Aguero
Aston Villa must be sick of the sight of Sergio Aguero. After all, the Argentine international has scored six goals in six appearances against them. The Citizens have gone on to win all six so Pep Guardiola is likely to name the division’s most successful import in his starting XI and he will no doubt be as dangerous as ever in front of goal.
