Everton v Chelsea (Saturday, 12.30pm) – Tammy Abraham
Frank Lampard lavished praise on striker Tammy Abraham as the England international made a scoring return to his side against Aston Villa. Abraham is now on 11 Premier League goals for the season and is fancied to compound the misery for sorry Everton in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
Bournemouth v Liverpool (Saturday, 3pm) – Sadio Mane
A goal, an assist and a fantastic performance from Sadio Mane saw him gifted with the Man of the Match accolade against Merseyside rivals Everton, as the Senegalese attacker helped the Reds maintain their eight-point lead at the top of the table. Mane has four from his last five Premier League games and he’s selected to break the deadlock at the Vitality Stadium against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Tottenham v Burnley (Saturday, 3pm) – Dele Alli
Dele Alli looks a completely different player under Jose Mourinho. Since the Portuguese boss took over from Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, Alli has score four in five matches in all competitions. Despite being on the losing end at Old Trafford on Wednesday, the Spurs attacker produced some magic to draw them level at half-time. With Burnley at home this weekend, he’ll be keen to add to his tally this season.
Watford v Crystal Palace (Saturday, 3pm) – Gerard Deulofeu
Watford are in dire need of a win on Saturday, as they sit bottom of the Premier League table. Gerard Deulofeu often provides the spark in an otherwise uninspiring team, and after recent strikes against Chelsea and Norwich, the Spaniard is backed to get the Hornets going against Crystal Palace this weekend.
Manchester City v Manchester United (Saturday, 5.30pm) – Gabriel Jesus
No Sergio Aguero? No problem. Gabriel Jesus has filled the void left by the Argentinian since his injury last month, and two sweet strikes against Burnley on Tuesday showed why Pep Guardiola must keep the faith with the promising Brazilian. A Manchester derby is an ample opportunity for the frontman to stake a further claim for the lone striker role.
Aston Villa v Leicester (Sunday, 2pm) – Jamie Vardy
Jamie Vardy has nine goals from his last seven Premier League appearances, and he’s still on course to break his own record of scoring in 11 straight matches. The speedy striker will see this Sunday’s match against Villa as a chance to continue that run and chase the record he holds, and it would take a brave punter to back against him doing so this weekend.
Norwich v Sheffield United (Sunday, 2pm) – Teemu Pukki
After a run of eight Premier League games without a goal, Teemu Pukki seems to have his Finnish-ing touch back after two in as many matches against Arsenal and Southampton. The Canaries host Sheffield United this weekend and he’ll be their main threat and best chance of putting the Blades to the sword on Sunday.
Brighton v Wolves (Sunday, 4pm) – Neal Maupay
Consistent goal scorers have been hard to come by for Brighton this season, but in Neal Maupay they have a recognised goal threat who is still finding his feet in England’s top flight since his summer move from Brentford. Graham Potter’s side are flirting with the relegation spots, and need a result against Wolves this weekend to give themselves breathing space from the rest of the hunting pack. Given he’s on spot-kick duties, the Frenchman is a likely contender for the opening goal in Sunday’s televised match.
West Ham v Arsenal (Monday, 8pm) – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was to thank for dragging Arsenal out of trouble and claiming a draw against Norwich last Sunday, and the Gabon international has always been a goal threat for the Gunners despite their poor form in the last month. He’ll fancy his chances in this one against West Ham and will hope to make it lucky number 13 for Premier League goals scored this season.
Newcastle v Southampton (Sunday, 2pm) – Allan Saint-Maximin
Not many would have given Newcastle a chance at Brammall Lane against Sheffield United in midweek, but Allan Saint-Maxim’s first goal for the club opened the scoring and led the way for the Magpies to secure a crucial 2-0 win. They host Southampton on Sunday, who are in good form themselves, but Steve Bruce’s men will fancy their chances in this one. Saint-Maxim’s first goal for the club could open the floodgates for him personally and he’s backed to score first against the Saints on Sunday afternoon.
